Danny Gokey at Christian Care Ministries

Danny Gokey traveled to Christian Care Ministries to talk about his music, mission and his family.

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.

Sleeker, Cohesive Album: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Danny Gokey

Danny Gokey leaning against brick wall.

“Following an awkward attempt at a country career, Milwaukee native and “American Idol” season eight finalist rebranded himself as a Christian pop singer”

With an opener like that, you can guess it can be hard to please a hometown critic… but things do get better. And better, just like Danny Gokey.  

“It was the right move. His 2014 album, “Hope In Front of Me,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Albums chart, and the album had two top five songs on the Christian singles charts. It sold twice as many copies as label BMG anticipated….

“Gokey has since been nominated for six GMA Dove Awards…. “Rise,” is a more cohesive and sleeker album, its songs closely aligned with the arena-packing stylings of TobyMac.” — Piet Levy for the MJS
