English translation; This is the music video of Danny Gokey, ‘May your heart beat again (Tropical Remix)’. Milkwaukee singer-songwriter, known for his role in the eighth season of American Idol (he finished third) and for his career in Christian music, recently launched its first album in Spanish, La Esperanza in front of me.
The album is composed of songs from his previous album translated Hope in Front of Me. ‘This reverse crossover’ of Gokey is not merely an attempt to conquer a Latino audience, but comes from the heart, because his wife is Leyicet Cuabana-Peruvian whose family speaks only Spanish. “Singing in Spanish was a big leap,” admits Gokey.
The tropical ballad “May your heart beat again (Tropical remix) ‘is a new version arranged by Melvin” Mestro “Lightford the original theme produced by Bernie Herms. We spoke with Gokey about learning Spanish with their bicultural children, his taste for tropical music and how are family gatherings at home.
Uforia Music: What are your favorite tropical songs?
Danny Gokey: I love “I do not know tomorrow” by Luis Enrique, ‘A Puro Dolor’ Son By Four and Marc Anthony ‘Was it worth it’ and ‘Live my life.’
Your wife is Latin, how you are teaching Spanish to your children?
Danny Gokey: My kids are bilingual. My wife’s parents speak only Spanish and live with us, which helps at home speak mostly in Spanish.
And you, learn with them watching children’s programs?
Danny Gokey: Yes! My children are almost all programs in Spanish and I learned a lot … and still learning.
How did you react your family to hear Cuban salsa version of this topic ‘May your heart beat again’?
Danny Gokey: They loved it! [Laughs]. They like a lot and always telling me what producers are working and what should be my next step in the music industry! They love to do this kind of music.
How are family parties with both families, Latino and American?
Danny Gokey: Bailamos salsa …. not very good, but we danced. [Laughs]. Both families are quite similar in the sense that every time we get together, we make a lot of noise, we had so much fun and there is always plenty of delicious food. The only difference is that we speak Spanish with my wife’s family and English with my side of the family. It is a clash of two worlds and is a wonderful thing.
