Happy Birthday Danny Gokey!!

Danny Turns Forty!!

Can our fave artist really be turning 40 on Friday, April 24th? Its been 11 years since Danny became part of Season 8 of “American Idol” and his soulful voice entered our living rooms!

While he definitely has found music success via his work with RCA Nashville, BMG and now Capital Christian Music labels, its his sweet family that takes center stage for Danny.

We hope Danny has a wonderful day celebrating with Leyicet, (little) Danny, Victoria, Gabriel and Emmanuel!

The Danny Gokey Band Wows a Sold Out Show

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.
