Howell Benefit Concert – Danny Gokey in Roseburg OR

Danny Gokey at charity concert by Wendy Reeves

“Christian singer Danny Gokey shared messages of inspiration Saturday during a benefit concert at the Douglas County Fair for the Howell family, which lost a mother and five children in a Riddle house fire March 1.  “When I heard about this cause for our Christian brother Jimmy Howell (the father), I was touched,” Gokey said to the crowd during the concert.

“We are here to lift him up, and we are here to bring strength, and we are here to get behind him and to get underneath him while he’s walking through this situation,” Gokey said. “God has grace for every battle that we walk through.”The concert was hosted by the Umpqua Valley Youth for Christ in partnership with A Day of Grace, a Christian-based concert promotional company that funds the needs of families enduring hardships.  The Gokey concert is the first Christian concert to be held at the Douglas County Fair in more than 20 years.”

  1. So is Ms. Reeves associated with the local newspaper, like Ms. Westbrook? Or just someone who was there and took great pictures and turned them into a cool collage?

    (P.S.) I looked at the audience photos but didn’t see myself, which is a relief!

  2. Hi Ellen, from her angle of photos, she clearly had backstage access. Not sure her role with the fair.

    Maybe Wendy will stop in and tell us?

    I am so appreciative of her generously sharing her work with us!

  3. I agree. Very cool. So creative. What a great looking band! They look like they have a good time. Best Wishes for the Howell Family.
