Danny Gokey and Natalie Grant’s Fifth Annual Celebrate Christmas Tour
2020 has been more than a usual, and downright hard for the music industry. A month or so ago I saw that Natalie and her husband Bernie were home recovering from Covid-19. I also saw Danny comment on twitter that he has been tested for the anti-bodies and he thinks he is immune at this time. Meanwhile, the Celebrate Christmas tour went forward with masks required for the audience and “social distancing seating”. They headed out to Florida, South and North Carolina, Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas.
This new collaboration with Evan Craft and Redimi2 (who assisted Danny on his Spanish version of
“Love God, Love People, Ama A Dios Y A Tu Vecino is a great addition to my collection of Danny Gokey music. The video is interesting too (I like old trucks and that VW Bug station wagon is the bomb!)
It was the wish of some of us to do a revisit of Danny’s version of “My Wish” from his “American Idol” tour in 2009 as a part of Season 8. So, I searched my archives and came up with this special nugget!
I also have the youtube of Danny’s performance of the same song in his hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Those were some huge crowds!

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.)
