I was fortunate to take in the final concert of Danny Gokey’s “Hope Encounter Tour” at a suburb of Chicago. This was likely the biggest sell out audience of the tour. It was announced that the Naperville venue had over 2,700 attendees! I can believe it! I also think it was the largest VIP line I had ever seen. I conservatively estimated 200 people (my husband thought it was closer to 300) waited in line to have a picture taken with Danny before the VIPs could claim the best seats for the night.
While Danny was a top three finisher on Season 8 of “American Idol”, David was runner up to David Cook in Season 7. (The first season Danny reportedly watched with his late wife, Sophia. before he decided to try out in 2008.)

The newest addition to the Gokey family was born on Friday, August 16. Emanuel’s timing was great; father Danny Gokey was able to be there for the birth of his fourth child with his wife, Leyicet in Nashville; but just before Danny had to leave for the “Off the Charts” Festival that he was headlining in ND! Fortunately, Danny was back in time to bring Leyicet and the new baby home on Sunday.
Here is the photo that Danny shared on Friday of his four children:

But to get us even more excited, he’s teasing us with a fourth song off the album: “Love God, Love People” with this sneak peak. Watch the 1 minute video below and let us know your thoughts.
