  1. I like this statement from a writer:

    Behind the Screens with Joshua Maloni

    The best thing a finalist on “American Idol” can do is … lose.

    Jennifer Hudson, Chris Daughtry, Katharine McPhee, Adam Lambert, Kellie Pickler, Danny Gokey, Colton Dixon, Gabby Barrett – the list of successful singers finishing in the top 10 far surpasses the roster of champions. These artists have scored No. 1 hit singles, spearheaded cross-country tours, and found award-winning success on the small and silver screens.

  2. From a Billboard article:

    Danny Gokey collects his highest charting album in over a decade on Top Album Sales, as Jesus People bows at No. 7 with 9,000 copies sold. Its his third top 10, and highest charting set since his debut release, My Best Days, debuted and peaked at No. 4 on the March 20, 2010-dated list.

  3. Stand in Faith has reached #15 on CAC anc Christian Audiance Billboard radio.charts. Be Alright topped at #3 on CA but has now reached #2 on CAA.

    Also, Danny has announced his “Celebrate Christmas” tour with Natalie for the West Coast.

  4. Congratulations to Danny!

    I move from the West Coast to the Midwest.. and I will miss the “Celebrate Christmas” tour again.🥺

  5. A belated Happy Thanksgiving to all that celebrate it!

    This latest single hasn’t been zooming up the chart so I have less music news to bring. Stand in Faith has hit Top 10… But it has been around this area for weeks.

    I was disappointed to see that Danny’s new album did not get a Grammy nomination. I am sure that was a disappointment to him. And his team.

    All the personal comments Danny has made on social media has kept me 😐 so I don’t say anything….

  6. One day Danny will get that Grammy nomination.

    I’m really enjoying Danny’s podcast with his wife Leyicet.

    I don’t know all the comments that have been said..but, I wish at times..Danny would keep some things private.

    Enjoy the holiday season.🎄

  7. My husband and I are really enjoying it. Closer to the grandchildren. Do miss our home of 44 years, but change is good. Thank you for asking.

    Glad to see Danny on tour.

    I meant to say in my last post..Grammy win. 😁

  8. Hi Cindy. I am glad you are happy about your big move.

    I wouldn’t mind some place warmer than out winters… Buy I can’t imagine moving away from our family and grand kids!

    Anyone seeing Danny at his Christmas concert? I am mostly staying away from big venues plus he isn’t coming to our area. So it was an easy decision.

    I haven’t flown since March of 2020! I do miss my trips, but hopeful 2022 will be better with the vaccinations and new treatment options!

    Take care dear Lurkers. And Cindy 😊

  9. Happy Holidays!

    Wishing everyone a Beautiful New Year!

    Thank you Jan, for another year of …. Danny Gokey News. 🌺

  10. I hope everyone had a good Christmas. We certainly did.

    I am contemplating what the next “version” of these posts at this website will be.

    Happy to hear input from anyone that visits.
