  1. I’ve been looking at another Kris Kristofferson video. I heard a song in my head and looked for it. I didn’t realize it was one of his songs until I found it. His lyrics are soothing.

    “I have seen the mornin’ burnin’ golden on the mountain in the skies
    Achin’ with the feelin’ of the freedom of an eagle when she flies
    Turnin’ on the world the way she smiled upon my soul as I lay dyin’
    Healin’ as the colors in the sunshine and the shadows of her eyes”

  2. Jan,
    You put up three new posts recently. Do you sometimes feel you have a full-time job? 🙂

    I expect Danny is appreciative of all your work.

  3. Hi Lurker!

    I know Danny is appreciative of this site and all of our support.

    Do I think Danny knows how much effort it takes? Ummmmm…. Leyicet told me she found out on Tuesday morning that they were leaving that night to go to Wisconsin for the SHF Gala! I think they are super busy and really don’t know how much time is spent here 😉

    But we are growing and so is Danny’s career.

    The Gala was really special tonight and Danny was practically glowing he was so happy.

    And Ed and I even got a bit of face time with him and he was bubbling over with new music news 🙂

    Some I can’t share…. yet…. but things are shaping up for the next album to be great!

    I hope to put up a SHF Gala post soon, but the next couple of days are super busy for me and Saturday we have a Lyle Lovett concert 🙂

    “You’re not from Texas, but Texas loves you anyway” 😉

  4. so happy things are moving fast for Danny, loved the videos Chris Allen, wondered what happened to him. Danny is still my favorite though!!! I did love Adam Lambert also. not big on Lyle Lovett. love to watch all the video’s! praying Rise goes to # 1, it is an amazing song. but love all his songs. His version of Give me Jesus, tears me up!!!!

  5. Danny did two concerts in Wisconsin Wednesday. A corporate event at Acuity Insurance (10 AM) that also benefited SHF and the Gala event.

    I liked all of Season 8 of American Idol.

  6. I like this tropical remix. Even like the commercial in Spanish. 🙂

  7. Chris Tomlin’s new album, Never Lose Sight, is #9 on itunes and #1 on Christian itunes . (He has a rotating banner on Christian itunes.)

    The song with Danny, Impossible Things, is #38 on Christian itunes.

  8. Thanks for the Lyle flashback, Lurker! That hair is classic, isn’t it? The theater is a small. elegant one and we have great seats 🙂

    Good news on the Chris & Danny duet 🙂

  9. Always look forward to tidbits from your meetings with Danny, Jan. 🙂

    I know Lyle Lovett from some of his acting and of course his marriage to Julia Roberts. :/

    TYHTBA: #18

    RISE: #28

    Impossible Things: #36

    HIFOM: #32

    Christmas is Here: #113

  11. thank you Jan for sharing the recap of the Sophia Heart Gala. that was awesome to watch him perform, and the interview and Leyicet. love to see the personal and just listening to him speak. He has come so far. God is Blessing Him and His Family. love them so much. He deserves all the wonderful things coming His way. thank you for all your hard work to keep us informed.

  12. itunes:

    TYHTBA: #14

    Christmas is Here: #109

  13. I am glad you enjoyed this post, Ann. Helping youth through Sophia’s Heart is dear to Danny’s heart, and ours, too.

    Ed and I remarked to each other how happy Danny looked and how comfortable he is in his role as the founder of SHF. His words were heartfelt and his joy performing with them is so moving.

  14. his heart is one of his greatest assets, that is why I am so drawn to him. a lot of people are great singers that sing very good songs, He feels what he sings, and that comes across so clear. its not just words, but actions make a person great.

  15. Ann, I agree with you that Danny’s heart and how he connects to his songs are what places him apart from other good singers.

    It’s the main reasons I loved his version of “What Hurts the Most”, IWNSG, TYHTBA, Its Only, and now “BetterThan I Found It”. You know they aren’t just verses to be sung.

    And I love his voice. 🙂

  16. I agree, Jan. I love all the songs you mentioned, but I haven’t heard the new song, “Better Than I found It.”

  17. Cindy, BTIFI was a duet with Hollyn when Danny was on tour with her (the Positive Hits Tour), but it isn’t a duet on the demo song given out when fans preorder the new album.

    However!! It has been re-recorded and it will be a duet. But not with Hollyn — according to my sources 😉

    New Discussion post is up. Danny’s Rise was moved up to #16 on the end of the week chart.

  18. love being part of this discussion and seeing the posts and video’s, gives a more personal look into His life. I don’t go by words, I go by actions and His actions are spot on. he lives what he says and sings. I pray for Him, Leyicet, Danny and Victoria everyday. God has truly blessed Him. Thank all of you for sharing. you are a blessing in my life

  19. Ann,
    I hope this is okay with you. I have copied your post above and pasted it to the new discussion page. A new discussion started today for 10/24 through 11/6. The old one from 10/10 through 10/24 is still active, but some people may move to the new discussion and might miss your comment. 🙂
