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!
With the third song available from his upcoming album Haven’t Seen It Yet, we have “Wanted”. Here is what Danny says about this new song: (Available now HERE.)
“This song means a lot to me because it was written from God’s perspective to those who have been hurt by so many things in life that they couldn’t control and as a result, they feel lost, damaged or unworthy. If this is you, the Father has your heart and he wants to restore it! His love goes so far beyond what you can imagine and he wants you to know that you ARE wanted! I pray that message sinks deep into the hearts of those who are hurting.”
The new song is perfectly paired with some young dancers to illustrate the joy we feel with this song. And for an added bonus, it’s interspersed with Danny also moving to the beat as he sings the song. Check out “New Day” now!
