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.)
Danny Gokey and his team are getting ready to release the next single, “Wanted”. They have just released this video of the story behind the writing of the song with Jess Cates.
Jess has many successful songs check out the list HERE.
We don’t know the impact date, yet, for “Wanted” but with the fact that it is one of the Top 5 songs being streamed by the radio industry, it must be soon – and the official music video was shot in Nashville this week!
Danny Gokey talks about his new album, “Haven’t Seen It Yet”, his writing process, his experience with his music contracts, writing, producing the songs and how he sets his live shows. He also talks about
What he looks for in his musicians for his tour (he wants his musicians to be “buttery”.)
Celebrating others’ talents.
Finally, what he means when he says, “He’s not where I should be, but I’m not where I was.”
The best thing I heard is it that he would like to.” add background singers to his live shows! (I loved how he added horns the last couple of years!)
Danny Gokey and Shae Wilbur are back singing together in the new song, “Unmovable”.
She auditioned and made it to Hollywood for Season 8 of “American Idol” where she became friends with Danny. Sharon and her father, Joel Chernoff, were back up singers for Paul Wilbur. Because Joel Chernoff is best friends with Paul Wilbur, Sharon and her husband, Joel Wilbur, grew up together. In addition to singing, Sharon also writes songs and is TV host in Florida and recently with Season 17 of “American Idol”.
Danny Gokey and his keyboardist, Monty (Samuel Montanez) traveled to Chicago to perform for Air1 and Chicago’s Channel WGN 9 Rahny Taylor (with Air1) shared on instagram stories Danny performing, hopefully it will be featured on the Air1 website, etc.
I’m glad to see Danny going the extra mile to push “Haven’t Seen It Yet”. Its currently at #3 on the Billboard National Airplay chart and 4th on Mediabase CAC. Its still seeing good growth and sales.
Danny Gokey sent all of his fans a message that he will be promoting his new album, “Haven’t Seen it Yet” in the lead up to its April 12th release with appearances in Atlanta, Baltimore, DC, New York, Dallas, Houston & St Louis. (Where is his visit to his homeland of Milwaukee???)
But to get us even more excited, he’s teasing us with a fourth song off the album: “Love God, Love People” with this sneak peak. Watch the 1 minute video below and let us know your thoughts.
We think its a classic Danny Theme.
PS. Don’t forget to redeem your pre-order of his album if you picked up the redemption card while he was on tour with Winter Jam!
