#GokeyGroupie: an enthusiastic supporter or follower of Danny Gokey
Colleen sent in a photo of the shirt she wore to a recent Danny Gokey concert and she shares this insight into why she is one of Danny Gokey’s #1 fans:
My husband and I have had a lot of loss in the past 18 months-9 people to be exact—including my Dad–which will be 10 months yesterday, cousin and Mother-in-law …Danny’s songs TYHTBA , HIFOM, Rise and Comeback ,his book HIFOM, along with Contemporary Christian Music itself has brought me back to life, given me stronger faith and proved to me that with God all things are possible and that even in my darkest moments. He is always there…..even getting through loss and depression from personal struggles with family has helped me be stronger than ever.

We are thrilled to report on a special experience for some longtime fans of Danny Gokey. Recently Danny teamed up with Pledgemusic.com to promote his new album, “Rise”.

Editior’s Note: We love when we can share the stories of how Danny Gokey’s music has impacted lives. Our thanks to Virginia for sharing her story with us!
“I really enjoyed meeting Danny and getting a picture with him at the Creation Festival in Kennewick, WA with my service dog. This was my second concert ever and I was very excited to attend. This was part of a recovery plan that was to help me stay positive during my first six months since I was recently medically retired from the military after 32 yrs of service.
My plan to “Keep Positive Plan” started the week before when I attended my first Wounded Warrior Care Event in Tacoma, WA. The day after the Care Event ended I was in Kennewick, WA to see Danny. I then got to spend the week with my oldest son, his wife and my first grandchild. They live in Pasco, WA. I left there headed back home to southern Oregon and on the way stopped to see Danny one more time in Eugene, OR.
I was blown away by this third concert and all the artists, but especially by seeing Danny at the Capstone of this event! The Positive Hits line up was way beyond anything I expected! Continue reading “Featured Fan: Danny Gokey Helps Virginia’s “Keep Positive” Plan”
Road Trip Recap with Stacey!
I met Laura in the autograph line at a DG show I saw last year, we started talking and took pics for each other and instantly hit it off, so we FB friend-ed each other and met up again at the KLOVE Christmas tour and helped break down Danny’s merch table! So needless-to-say we are DIE HARD DG fans and when he wasn’t coming to Illinois anytime this year – we joked about going to see him.

On November 3, 2010, I became paralyzed from the waist down (T10 with burst fracture at T9). Because of God, my fun therapists, loving family, great friends, and encouraging strangers, I’ve been able to move forward into a bright future. “
How can you not be inspired by Jack?
In this video he is using an Exoskeleton system to walk. Please share your comments below and on Jack’s YouTube videos at this LINK
I don’t know if Jack is still using his Go Fund Me Page, but it gives more info:
I became paralyzed from the waist down in 2010 when I was 16, confining me to a wheelchair. I’m trying to become as independent as possible. I have used the ReWalk Exoskeleton twice on a trial basis. My doctors and therapists have approved me to use the device and say I am a perfect candidate, but unfortunately, my insurance will not cover it. Raising the funds will allow me to purchase an exoskeleton and enable me to walk. Thanks for your help.
