Flashback Thursday: Grapevine by Danny Gokey

We’re not going ALL the way back to 2009 to Danny Gokey’s audition on “American Idol”, but to the same song that Danny performed at the NHL Fan Fair in 2016!  Was this one of the last times Danny has performed, “I Heard It Through the Grapevine”?

(feat. Danny Gokey & Jordin Sparks)

[Danny Gokey:]
I can leave my whole world in Your hands
Let You hold it together
Like today was forever
Siempre dice lo mismo que ayer (He always says the same thing as yesterday )
Nunca me dejarás (You will never leave me)

Yo no se de dinero   (Don’t know much about money)
Ni mucho de la fama  (Not much of fame)
Pero se que te quiero  (But I know that I love you)
Y se que tú me amas  (And I know you love me)
Que se escuche en el cielo (Let it be heard in the sky)
Lo gritare con ganas  (I will scream with desire)
Que soy tuyo  (That I am yours )
Soy solo tuyo  (I’m only yours)
Ohh Continue reading “Lyric Video: TUYO -Social Club Misfits with Danny Gokey”

Hits Deep Tour Highlights in Milwaukee

Danny Gokey in the spotlight on the Hits Deep Tour Finale

TobyMac’s hit song, “Feel It” is the high energy and joyful encore for the “Hits Deep Tour”

We feel very fortunate that Danny Gokey’s tours often make a stop in Wisconsin.  Not always, but our luck is better than most areas – the advantage of living in Danny’s home state!

The Hits Deep Tour is deep in talent.  This show moves quickly from artist to artist. In fact, so quickly that I mistakenly told our group that Danny would be coming on after the intermission and we were walking out just as he took the stage!  We quickly got back into our row.  (Not our seats, we stood for Danny’s and most of the other artists sets!)

Recap: Ellen at the Hits Deep Tour with Danny Gokey

Hits Deep Tour with Danny Gokey by EllenDanny Gokey on the TobyMac Deep Hits Tour in Portland, OR

Well, first of all, I managed to score seats in the second row, thanks to the diligence of Jan and Danny Gokey News! The site let me know exactly when the tickets went on sale. I’m kinda of a Luddite, though, and I scramble to complete the transaction before the clock runs out. I swear I clicked to get the prepaid parking, but it didn’t go through. So that led to a saga. I’d had a rough week at work the previous week, so when February 17th dawned, I was tired and cranky. And yes, the parking situation turned out to be the nightmare that I feared. But on to more interesting things . . .

Going through the security line, I wished I had brought my good camera. The security person barely looked at my camera. We did have to go through metal detectors. It’s sad but that’s the world we live in. I’d rather everyone be safe. I also got wanded, although I’m not sure why.

As I think Jan noted previously, the setup, aside from the main stage, involved a strip of stage that extended into the audience area on the floor, about to the middle of the arena. I was sitting on the floor, row two, about the middle of the section that was left of center. I really did appreciate that they left sufficient space between rows so that no one felt crowded. It made up a little for the fact that the rows on the floor aren’t elevated, but for someone as vertically-challenged as I am, it wasn’t much help. Toby wasn’t kidding about the “hits,” because I recognized most of the songs — even songs by Finding Favour and Ryan Stevenson, with whom I am not that familiar. Aaron Cole kicked things off on the strip stage mid-venue. And (I hope I’m not mixing this up) Finding Favour was next on the main stage, then Ryan Stevenson appeared on the strip stage. (I do remember Ryan singing “Gospel” on the strip stage. Interesting factoid: Ryan is originally from Oregon. He’s also a former paramedic.)

Next up was Mandisa. I can’t say enough good things about this warm, engaging woman. She has a real charisma and presence about her. And she sure knows how to dance up a storm! It’s very clear that she means everything she sings. Highlights were her hit “Overcomer,” and, for me personally, “Bleed the Same,” a song that really strikes an Continue reading “Recap: Ellen at the Hits Deep Tour with Danny Gokey”

TobyMac’s number 1 song, “Feel It” is the jubilant encore for the “Hits Deep Tour”.

And while it is one of our favorite TobyMac songs, we think it’s especially good because this version has Danny Gokey coming back on stage to help sing this final song!

For a close up of a part of it, enjoy Danny’s clip of the same song:
