All of us feel out of our comfort zone now and then. We give Danny Gokey huge props for talking about his own personal “fail” when it happens. Like the time he confused famous rock bands on “American Idol”, or in this case, how to not look cool with the Social Club Misfits!
“Meet the #legends of socialclubmisfits. We’re on the same management team & I’ve wanted to meet them for a while. Probably the most memorable part of meeting them was when we took this pic. I did what I always do, placed my huggable Christian arms around them and smiled nice and big like a good obedient church boy. They immediately went into their #swag positions, straight faces, heads tilted, hands down by side and the optional one hand throwing up a peace sign. I immediately panicked because it was too late to change my stance, and even if I could’ve changed it, I wouldn’t have known what to do. I felt like a failure and like the uncool dad who high fives all the young kids while wearing a fanny pack humming ‘what do you mean’ by Justin Bieber. I couldn’t wait for the pic to be over so I could get in front of my body mirror on my bus and mimic exactly what they did for future pics while the humiliation wore off. I fear I may have scared them away with my first impression. 😂😂😂. Seriously tho, I can’t wait to work with these guys and promise to never do them like that again.” #nerd #dadliferocks#dontjudgeme
What advice do you have for Danny?
