Danny Gokey News & Discussion- May & June 2021

Retrospective to May, 2016!

Can you believe its been five years since Danny’s biggest hit, “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” gave him multiple #1s on Billboard and his first RIAA certified gold song?

I’m glad to see that “Haven’t Seen it Yet” also garnered so many #1s AND was his second RIAA certified gold song.

  1. Very quiet here. Hope everyone is doing well. 🌺🌸🌼🌻

  2. Yes, it has been really quiet. I do think blogs are losing out to social media….

    We have been well. How is your new home, Cindy?

    Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

  3. Thank you, Jan. We are having fun living in the Midwest.

    Was thrilled to meet our second grandson, and catch up with our first grandson. It’s a nine hour drive from Overland Park, Kansas, to Colorado. But, shorter than California. 😳

    Yes, we’re in Kansas. I will always miss our mountains, and California. But, we’re really enjoying it here. It was time to be closer to family. We hope in the future to move to Colorado, but love being here with our son.

    Now, if we can convince our daughter to leave northern CA.😁

    Looking forward to Danny’s new music. Closer to where Danny performs now.😉

    Hello, MRBING.

  4. You are getting closer, Cindy!!

    We feel so fortunate to be only minutes away from our families. Less than 20 minutes to both kids and their families, 5 minutes to two of my sisters, an hour to my husband’s sister and dad. I spent most of Sunday morning on a bicycle ride with our son’s family and then made a quick lunch for us all. So fun!

    Now, back to DG business:

    Don’t forget to vote for Danny for Male Artist of the Year:


  5. That sounds wonderful, Jan.🌺

    I voted.😊

    I agree. I like Danny’s new song.🤗

  6. Danny Gokey releases new single from upcoming new album
    Fri, May 21st 2021 12:40 pm
    ‘Stand In Faith” is available today along with lyric video

    √ New studio album releasing Aug. 20

    Three-time Grammy Award nominee, three-time KLOVE Male Vocalist of the Year and Dove Award-winner Danny Gokey has released a new song, “Stand In Faith,” from his upcoming album. The new, anthemic song is available here and the lyric video debuted today here. Gokey will release a new, full-length studio album on Aug. 20.

    This past year has been difficult for everyone around the globe. Gokey recognized the challenges everyone has faced and said he hopes this new album will be an encouragement and reminder of what faith means to each person and how to stand strong in what you believe.

    Many of the songs on the new album were birthed from what he has learned during this past year and how to look forward with these lessons learned.

    “I wrote this song to be an anthem that people can sing over their lives to encourage their faith for the miracles and breakthroughs they’re believing God for,” Gokey said about his new single. “Faith brings our hopes into reality! It’s the confidence and trust in God that’s needed to acquire the things we long for but don’t yet see. Faith invites God in to work on our behalf. More now than ever before, faith should be our bedrock and our foundation. I pray this song revives the hearts of many who listen to it and gives them the needed fuel to persevere in any difficult situation.”

    The new album follows his successful 2019 release, “Haven’t Seen It Yet,” which produced the newly certified RIAA Gold single, “Haven’t Seen It Yet.” This is his second Gold-certified career single, and the song was No. 1 at Christian radio for seven weeks (making it his fifth No. 1 radio single).

    It was also announced this week that Gokey is nominated for the fifth time for “Male Artist of the Year” at the KLOVE Fan Awards, which is the only Christian music fan-voted award show. He is the reigning Male Artist of the Year from 2019 and has won the category three times in the award show history. Fans can vote here for Gokey and other categories. He will perform the Spanglish version of his No.1 radio single hit, “Love God Love People,” during the pretaped broadcast, which will air on TBN on June 4.

    In step with many of the messages of his songs, Gokey continues to give back to the community as he has from the start of his career, which began during his time on “American Idol.” His foundation, Better Than I Found It, is a nonprofit organization established to support and encourage other nonprofits making a difference in their community. Gokey’s foundation partners and walks alongside other organizations to help them move to the next level for the most impact.

    Gokey, became a favorite of millions of fans as a top 3 finalist on season eight of “American Idol.” Following that, Gokey released his debut album, “My Best Days,” which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200. Since then, Gokey has celebrated a series of No. 1 songs, including his follow-up album releases, “Hope In Front of Me,” “Rise,” “Haven’t Seen It Yet” and his award-winning holiday album, “Christmas Is Here.”

    Spawning singles “Hope In Front of Me,” “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” (RIAA Gold-certified), “Rise,” “The Comeback” and “Haven’t Seen It Yet” (also Gold), he has cemented his place on the radio charts with multiweek, multichart No. 1 runs both in the U.S. and in Canada.

    Gokey is a native of Milwaukee and currently lives in Nashville with his wife, Leyicet, and their four children.

  7. Here is the latest mediabase chart. Danny’s New Day continues to drop ( I think it may have made Top 10?) but Be Alright is now #19.

    17 17 DANNY GOKEY New Day 838 1049 -211 2.678

    19 18 Up this week BIG DADDY WEAVE All Things New 817 791 26 2.966

    22 19 Up this week EVAN CRAFT Be Alright f/D. Gokey, Redim2 669 515 154 5.234

    Not sure what Danny’s next single will be. He says his next album is coming out in late August (August 28th?) “Stand in Faith”. So I’m guessing this released song will be his lead single?
