Especially when you see the results of Billboard‘s year-end charts!

Danny’s achieved an impressive fifth place on the Christian Airplay Artist Radio Airplay success of his songs, Rise” and The Comeback” — as well as play from his previous hits!

Danny and his songs also ranked on MANY more charts. You can see the best of the chart news below.

But why do I have the lead photo featuring Danny’s song, “Masterpiece”?  Because it is the next single to be released to Christian radio. We are looking forward to see how this ballad will do on radio.  Danny’s last ballad, “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again”, is still being played, streamed and bought.  You can check out “Masterpiece” lyrics and acoustic video HEREContinue reading “Billboard End of Year Charts Success for Danny Gokey”

Billboard on the Return of “American Idol”

Vote for Danny Gokey on IdolAre you excited for the relaunch of “American Idol” in 2018?

Do yo remember voting for Danny Gokey on “American Idol” or sitting on pins and needles to hear if he was “safe” for another week?  Some of us owe (or blame?) “American Idol” for helping us find some amazing artists.  Maybe even our FAVORITE artist. (And in my case, sucking up an incredible amount of time.  But it is all good; I have some awesome friends from it, too!)

In a recent article by Fred Bronson for Billboard, he talks about what he would like to see in the reboot of the iconic show.  And we are pleased that out of the 150 artists that made the top 10 through those fifteen seasons, he has this to say:

THE CONTESTANTS: We’ve always believed that Idol rises and falls on the shoulders of the contestants. The series found a lot of amazing talent over 15 years………. Give us a talent roster as great as Ruben Studdard, Clay Aiken and Kimberley Locke or Carrie Underwood, Bo Bice and Vonzell Solomon or David Cook, David Archuleta and Syesha Mercado or Kris Allen, Adam Lambert and Danny Gokey, and we’ll be happy.
