  1. 10 more comments (or 9 minus this one 😉 ) to 7500!

    And Jan is getting very very close to 4000 followers on the DGN Facebook which is amazing.

    This site is approaching two years old in a few weeks.

  2. It just occurred to me if I let out the spam queue that would gain us 5 comments. But … that would be cheating, so no

    Time for this guy again?

  3. Woohoo!

    Yes close to 4,000 followers on Facebook and over 1,000 each on Twitter and Instagram.

    Thanks for joining the discussion, everyone!

    Plus. I will have some special news for Wisconsinites tomorrow morning 🙂

  4. That was a cute video. Though I’m not sure how Danny managed to spend soooooo much time trying to steam that one shirt during the interview …

    (one more is it!)

  5. OK, I’ll bite. Yeah, I thought it took Danny quite a while to (steam) iron one shirt. And then he decided he didn’t want to wear it, lol. That’s why you try it on first, Danny, before you bother laundering or ironing it.

    It is a cute video.

  6. And I am comment 7,501!! Thanks for playing along Ellen and Cindy. Admin2, you were the instigator.

    I agreed with Ellen, why iron until you’ve tried it on? But I also think the blue jacket looked so much better. The white shirt was very tent-like.

    Danny does like to look good — for a nerdy kid from Milwaukee 😉

  7. Comment #7502 has arrived….and I’m a #1 fan as well!! Doesn’t matter what Danny wears, he’s always stylish but the Navigator shirts seem to be the most tailored for him. The blue jacket would have been my choice too as it’s my fav color!! Love the live videos …they crack me up!!

  8. Really nice video of Danny singing TYHTBA and the crowd joining in at Angel Stadium. I would love to hear Danny describe the feeling when the crowd sings his song back to him.


    TC is doing very well on the Mediabase chart #12 and the 4th highest spincrease.

    Its also made #9 (highest position) on the big Billboard Christian Airplay Chart. (up from #12).

    Here is what Kristen posted at MJs:

    Danny Gokey
    “Hope in Front of Me”: Christian 42 (36)
    “Rise” [Album]: Christian 30 (25)
    “Comeback”: Christian Airplay 9 (12); Christian Songs 12 (13); CAC 12 (14)

    So good to see that Danny is one of the 7 “American Idol” alum on this week’s Billboard music charts. Hopefully Billboard will put out an update of the number of charts the alumni have been on when American Idol relaunches. I think Danny is doing great.

  9. How I wish that Natalie Grant and Danny Gokey would perform out this way. Can you imagine in the Angel Stadium. It would be packed!!

    You probably could see from the photos that half the stadium wasn’t used at the SoCal Harvest. That was so the people would be facing the stage. We sat directly in front of Danny, but up high. Sound is always different within the stadium. I couldn’t hear everyone singing back as loudly as Danny could in the video posted. I bet it made Danny happy to hear all the clapping and singing.

    Congratulations, Danny Gokey News!! Thank you for all your hard work. 🙂

  10. We have almost all of the Celebrate Christmas dates now announced in the special post. TX, LA and the Midwest are the winners for this tour.

  11. @dannygokey: Hey @GoDaddy my website has been hacked & down for a week. Fans are wondering what’s up! Nobody on the cust. service line can help. HELP!!

    I am pretty sure this is Penny, not Danny tweeting this…. geez. Not good when you have to tweet your website host. Bummmer.

  12. Hi, I was wondering how Sophia’s Heart Foundation is doing? I looked on their site and it’s so different. Thank you.

  13. Hi Cindy, I don’t know what is happening with Sophia’s Heart. Last year I was working with the director on the SHF Milwaukee Gala. No word on it this year.

    When Danny was between labels, it was a major focus of his attention. Now he has such an active career. My impression is that it is now acting as a foundation and granting funds to other charities to help with causes like wells, schools, etc.

  14. Thank you, Jan. Didn’t Danny say they bought that beautiful property? I haven’t heard him mention SHF in a while. Yes, Danny is very busy…

  15. This is what we shared a while back. https://dannygokeynews.com/2016/03/21/danny-gokeys-sophias-heart-plans-transitional-housing-equestrian-therapy-community-garden/

    I’m not seen an update on the timeline.

    A Nashville-based nonprofit foundation founded by “American Idol” alumni and contemporary Christian music singer-songwriter Danny Gokey has paid $1.4 million for 59.3 acres in Antioch with plans to eventually build a transitional housing complex.

    Sophia’s Heart Foundation plans to use an existing building on the property at 4157 Moss Road for an information and referral program for homeless families. An equestrian therapy program and a community garden also are planned for adjacent land.

    Construction plans are being drawn up for the transitional housing facility, which would house up to 30 families, said Lakesha Jones, CEO of Sophia’s Heart Foundation. That complex is expected to be completed in late 2017.

    “It’s a beautiful oasis that gives us the opportunity to enter into the next phase of our mission,” Jones said about the property. “Families won’t just find a place to stay, but a place of serenity, a place of peace, a place of healing, a place of hope and a place to start a new life as they walk with God.”

    Sophia’s Heart Foundation used some of $5.9 million in proceeds from selling its former transitional housing facility at 1034 W. Eastland Ave. in East Nashville to Birmingham, Ala.-based LIV Development LLC to buy the 59.3-acre Antioch site. Multifamily developer LIV is building The Cleo, a 291-unit apartment community, on that 4.66-acre site where the former Nashville Rehabilitation Hospital building once stood.

  16. How wonderful that the SHF is doing so well to minister to so many families!!

  17. We hope you are doing something fun, Ellen.

    Danny and Leyicet are getting impatient for that new baby. I tried to remember that “in womb” was the easiest way to carry and feed a baby… no extra gear to carry… When I was waiting for our kids to be ready to be born.

  18. Yes, Ellen. Have a wonderful time where ever you are..

    So excited for Danny and Leyicet. I wonder… boy or girl? Little Danny might be a big brother to two little sisters. 🙂

    ..or, to a little brother. 🙂

  19. Hi Cindy, we were on another little trip. Just got home in time to watch the Green Bay Packers on our own big screen. #GoPackGo

  20. Sounds like fun, Jan. We have an Air Show this weekend, so planes are flying all over the valley.

    A new “big screen.” How nice. 🙂

  21. Okay, I think I read your post wrong, Jan. You came home to watch the game on your own big screen. :/

    My niece lives in Richmond, Texas. It’s been raining non-stop since yesterday. Hope the best for everyone in Texas.
