  1. Lurker, it is a lot of work to do a recap. It takes time to upload the videos to YouTube (and of course, write a story). There’s supposed to be way to edit the videos for camera shake and other problems, but it was taking so long, I gave up. The videos don’t look or sound as good as they do on my computer — my guess it that the video file is compressed when it is uploaded to YouTube.

    I plan to do one more recap, but I will wait a while, maybe until when there is not a lot going on. It’s the Roseburg event from this past August. I have the notes I wrote for the recap. At the time, though, I couldn’t figure out how to upload the videos to YouTube. It was very special. I think maybe because it was a benefit concert and the cause was a sad one — a fire that took the life of multiple children — that Danny was especially connected to the meaning of his songs. And I have a treat for you, Lurker — I wasn’t planning to record “What Love Can Do,” but when Danny started singing the song, it was so beautiful that I turned on the video. Very bummed that I missed the first verse, but I honestly have never heard Danny sing it better.


  2. I remember singing that song when I was little in church…

    It sounds like you have some special memories of Danny’s concerts, Ellen.


  3. ” I have a treat for you, Lurker — I wasn’t planning to record “What Love Can Do,” but when Danny started singing the song, it was so beautiful that I turned on the video.” ❤


  4. hi Cindy, I left it up for a few hours and then removed it since this isn’t a site where we focus on political topics.


  5. Danny and Masterpiece are mentioned in this article about author Francine Rivers. I’ve read some of her books


    Carol Stream, Ill.—February 14, 2018—On February 12, beloved and bestselling author Francine Rivers traveled to a K-LOVE event in her hometown of Pleasanton, California, to meet Christian recording artist Danny Gokey. Rivers is a fan of Gokey’s and, beyond that, was also interested in meeting the artist who shares the same inspiration for their respective recent projects.

    On February 6, Rivers released her latest novel, The Masterpiece, a probing tale that reminds us that mercy can shape even the most broken among us into an imperfect yet stunning masterpeice. In this return to her romance roots, The Masterpiece is a riveting and highly anticipated story of redemption, grace, and love.

    Like Rivers’s new novel, one of Gokey’s latest song releases, “Masterpiece,” is inspired by Ephesians 2:10—“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” As a fan of Gokey’s, Rivers didn’t pass up the chance to meet him and share their inspiration stories. While attending the K-LOVE event, Rivers shared that they “both got a chuckle” out of their similarly inspired projects—her novel The Masterpiece and his song, “Masterpiece.”


  6. That’s what I mentioned, ADMIN2. I hadn’t thought my post political, but I understand. It could have lead to political views. My heart goes out to the students and families in Florida.

    If Francine Rivers book The Masterpiece becomes a movie then, Danny’s song Masterpiece could be the theme song. 🙂


  7. Aww, dang, now I’m curious about what you said, Cindy3! Oh, well, if it’s about what happened in Florida, I probably agree with whatever you said. But Admin2 is probably right. I remember the early days of iheartdannygokey, and it could get tense when posters posted political views.


  8. @WAYFMJustin: Which new song is your new favorite? #WAYNew Music Showdown on @WAYFMRadio: (2x champion) @DannyGokey “Masterpiece” VS (challenger) @MatKearney “Face To Face” #Vote! The winner returns Friday.


  9. Oh my goodness. The Honda Center is very close to where my son lives. Right across from Anaheim Stadium where I saw Danny perform last year. My husband and I weren’t able to go to San Diego, or to Ontario which is just down the mountain from us. Hopefully, we can make this concert. 🙂 Thank you for posting.

    The mix of Billy Graham and Danny Gokey was beautiful. A tribute for a very special man.


  10. Thanks,ELLEN.
    Cindy,wish you can make it happen.
    I like it when people do mix or cover Danny’s songs.Especially it is done with only instruments.How about a violin version of masterpiece?

  11. Is the MBD video recent?
    Danny has not been singing much from his first album since leaving Sony. I didn’t know if he just hated everything from his first album or if he was not allowed to sing freely from it.
    But he has a third label now and is still singing from the second label. Maybe another single from the second label? The first single from label three is not due soon.
    Perhaps first label songs will no longer be banned? (Not all of those songs are too country for CCM; so that is not a reason for none of them.)


  12. Hi everyone!
    I was at the concert Deep Tour TobyMac in Denver Coliseum. It was awesome!!! I was very happy to see Danny Gokey at the concert again. It was very nice to see the People love Danny and his music. I’m very proud of Danny Gokey! I saw Danny at the concert 4 times and every time Danny did a wonderful job!!! I love Danny and his band, they are amazing! I was glad to see Mandisa and TobyMac. Thank you to all singers for a beautiful concert!!!
    I was sad, I did not have my camera. I tried to take pictures of my phone, but I have a new phone and I need more practice ha-ha. I recorded shorts videos from all songs, but the video not perfect too. I hope next time!!!
    Have a wonderful day everyone!

  13. Don’t worry, Zuzana. I know all about having new equipment and not enough experience practicing with it to know how it works! At the Roseburg concert this past summer, I took two new cameras I’d gotten in anticipation for for a trip in late summer. One was a not-very-powerful waterproof point-and-shoot, the other was a good quality camera. But when it came time, I couldn’t find the video button on the good camera! So my first few vids were with the point-and-shoot, which meant poor audio and visuals. Luckily, I figured it out later.

    I am so glad you had a good time, Zuzana! But not surprised. Danny is a compelling performer.

  14. Ellen, its ok to have multiple pseudonyms….

    Two songs went recurrent and Masterpiece is now #28 on the Mediabase CAC chart.

    Also, I’m working on a couple of posts and perhaps a new way of posting the news and discussion…. I’m thinking it might be handy to capture the news by the month and year instead of having bi-weekly discussion posts. On busy times (around new music) I could have a couple of news posts in the same month. Let’s see if I implement it.


  15. Masterpiece doesn’t seem to be a fast-mover but for this type of song, perhaps slow and steady works ok. It seems to be creeping toward top 20 on Billboard which would be a good milestone.

    And before we know it, it will be time to think about a new Christmas song!


  16. “And before we know it, it will be time to think about a new Christmas song!”

    You are such a TEASE, Admin2. You know how to make my heart pitter patter…
