Interview of Danny Gokey by James Kurtis & Drew Brown
Danny Gokey! He’s one of those blessed dudes who must be happy all the time thanks to his “perfect” life. He’s got a beautiful growing family, an incredible music career and even more businesses and foundations to his credit.
But behind the glare of those stage lights, Danny has battled depression and faced the all-too-real suffering that life can bring. In this interview James Kurtis & Drew Brown of Between the Grooves discuss with Danny,
The depression that Danny feels he’s been fighting most of his life
The danger of letting pain become louder than the voice of God
Danny’s vision for building the Kingdom through his business decisions
The advice he would give his younger self – prior to being a contestant on American Idol
And to sing us a few songs on Facebook Live! He traveled from Nashville, where he saw the miracle of his third child, Gabriel Daniel Gokey, being born; to perform the next morning in Florida! In the interview Danny talks about the goal that Leyicet and he had: for Danny to be at this birth! The beautiful baby was 8 pounds, 8 ounces at 20 inches long (their smallest of three babies!) He also talks about growning up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin -that Gabriel is the 21st grandchild. And then Danny had the chutzpah to say “and we are just getting started”. He also talks about how God made him stronger to compete on “American Idol” when he didn’t feel he had the strength. And as a teaser… Danny hinted that he and Leyicet are working on developing broader content – with his family – to bring people to Christ.
Enjoy hearing the interview and the songs he sang, “Tell Your Heart To Beat Again”, “More Than You Think I Am”, “Hope in Front of Me”, “Rise” & “How Great is Our God”.
Its a wonderful ~40 minute program of encouraging words, worship, and song.
