There’s a really nice write up on Danny and the other nominees at the Grammy website.
As the 60th GRAMMY Awards approach, the five nominees for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album are exceptional representatives of how faith and music can come together spiritually.
… he has tried to be a house on a hill, illuminating a pathway for others. Receiving his first GRAMMY nomination for Rise, Gokey’s ambition to be “a voice that connects, a voice that unifies, a voice that finds common ground” has reached a higher position to send his message out into the world.
