  1. OK.I finished listening to the whole album.First of all I am just beyond happy to have new DG music on my ipod.Its a very well produced album.And I can tell Danny is much more mature as an artist now.Although I like his previous work.I always thought he had the problem that lots of draft singers have which is tend to oversing.This time I truly feel him as an artist without him showing his vocal range or hitting high notes.It is just good music.Chasing catches my ears after listening to the thing.Also like slow down very much.This all I wanna say for now.Gonna listen to it one more time.

  2. I mean after listening to the whole thing.I dont wanna repeat myself too much.But apparently I dont know how to say the thing in a different way.

  3. Yes, Jan! The first rotating banner. 🙂

  6. It appears to me that Danny is a generous duet partner. In my opinion, he gives his partners an equal role in a duet instead of featuring a partner as a backup singer. To me, this seems smart as well as generous.

    Fans of a featured artist want to hear the artist they like. They also have a chance to hear and perhaps appreciate the other singer on the duet. It is disappointing to listen to a duet and discover the one you are listening for has only a minor role.

    Jordan has lots of fans including more than four million on twitter. Her fans are likely, I think, to buy the single in order to hear her. Maybe some will also buy the full album.

  7. If I heard correctly, one of the questions asked was if Danny and Natalie were going to record “The Prayer.” I think Danny answered yes. (Kind of fast talking so I’m not sure.)

  8. Snowing and our power just came back on. That’s great news, Lurker! I hope they do record “The Prayer.” Happy RISE was shipped today. Looking forward to listening to it. I’ll be checking back if the electricity stays on…

  9. Listening to Danny answering questions on Facebook. I heard your name mentioned, Jan. 🙂 LA must look very pretty with all the rain we had. Danny sounds so excited. Very happy for him.

  10. Okay, that was so funny. Danny thought Palm Springs was in Florida. I can see why, but so cute. Palm Springs is right now the hill, in the desert, about 90 minutes away from us. Sorry, for the lingo I use about our mountain town. Hope Danny will have concerts out this way. Southern California would love to have him here. 🙂

  11. Hi Cindy, it was nice for Danny to do a shout out to Dannygokeynews 🙂 But I was even MORE excited with him answering the question about coming to Milwaukee for a show this summer. I swear he looked like he wanted to tell us he has a Summerfest show!! I do follow Summerfest, so I should know as soon as they announce it 🙂

    Penny said on her Facebook post that she was up at 4AM for TV interviews. So…. is Danny going to be on Entertainment Tonight or ????

  12. Meant to say, Palm Springs is “down” the hill from us.

    Entertainment Tonight… that would be nice. It’s time Danny gets his time on the entertainment, and talk shows.

    Did Danny perform at Summerfest before, or is this something you have been waiting for, Jan? Danny looked very excited to announce. Part of Danny’s charm is his “boyish excitement” with life.

  13. Danny’s hometown concert for Idol was at the Summerfest grounds and he had a HUGE return in 2010 for his My Best Days album. He had a good sized show again in 2011. So many Danny fans journeyed to MKE to meet and see Danny in 2010. Erika came, too!

  14. How fun. Erika.. There are so many that I remember when I first came to this site. I hope they are all well, and will come back and visit. I enjoy coming here and seeing all our Danny Gokey fans. 🙂

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for Summerfest..

  16. Ok.I take back what I said about him not showing his vocal range.I tried to sing along this time,but totally failed.I will remember next time not matter how easy MrGokey makes it look like,its not.

  17. I love that you attempted to keep up with Danny, Mr. Bing 🙂

    So much good stuff coming out with this new release I don’t know where to start!

  19. Really long article from Billboard. I’ve gathered up a portion of the promotion. Wow!

    I’d say that Danny has a really good publicist this time. Billboard, 2 People articles, I think Danny did remote interviews with FOX TV stations from LA, and a ton of Christian radio. 🙂

    I like this promo period a lot better. Nice to see HIFOM rebounding, too 🙂

  20. Question: Given that Danny’s album was released on a Friday, how will TPTB calculate his first week sales, for purposes of chart position, etc.?

  21. Re: the lyric video (by a fan) above (with nearly nine million views, about 58,000 likes, and 1800 comments):

    The video is just a pretty picture, the lyrics, and Danny’s voice. I think that is enough. It is simple, but I like it better than story videos. In the story videos, Danny’s voice is out-of-sync. The sound and lip movements are not matching. I find that distracting.

    The My Best Days videos were matched well (lips and sound). The HIFOM and the new one for Rise have not been. Maybe the problem is my computer?

  22. I decided to go to You Tube and listen to Danny’s songs. I’ve enjoyed everyone I heard. Can’t wait until my CD arrives. I think the cover of Danny’s CD is all that needs to be shown. It looks really classy to see it displayed on You Tube. Congratulations to Danny and Team..

  24. “I think the cover of Danny’s CD is all that needs to be shown. It looks really classy to see it displayed on You Tube. ”

    🙂

  25. “Question: Given that Danny’s album was released on a Friday, how will TPTB calculate his first week sales, for purposes of chart position, etc.?”

    For Billboard: Friday is the beginning of chart weeks, now, Ellen. It runs Friday to Thursday.

    Mediabase still runs Monday to Sunday.

  26. So buying on Monday would get the CD purchase to count for first week numbers on both Billboard and Mediabase charts? Or not?

  27. Mediabase only tracks airplay, not sales.

    Buying Danny’s album anytime through Thursday, January 19th would help him with his debut sales numbers (as long as the order is processed.) If it goes out of stock at Amazon, and/or they can’t ship it until Friday or later, it would go on that week’s sales numbers.

    I had ordered RISE (from lots of sources….) from Amazon, got the immediate download, but I still haven’t received the CD. I remember when I ordered My Best Days from Amazon, it showed up the day before or on the day of release from Amazon. Wondering why they are slower this time…. checking my account they say they are “preparing the shipment”, that I can expect receipt from 1/19 to 1/21. What? At least my purchase counts in the debut week :/

  28. But at least I got the download on 1/13/17. Of course, I had already completed my album on iTunes….

  29. That’s cool, Admin2. I have no idea why my pre-order from Amazon isn’t scheduled to get to me until 1/19 to 1/21. Odd.

  30. Danny just performed Rise and Comeback at Saddleback. I believe he comes back and closes their service (in about 40 minutes?) with their band to sing “Good, good Father”.

    One more service at 11 AM PST.
