Songs You May Not Have Heard Danny Gokey Sing Before

Danny Gokey and Friends performed for the KLOVE Cruise in a special “halftime” show during the Superbowl while they were returning from Bermuda.

Tim Norwood shared the following video of Danny Gokey (and his band), 615 Funk (Tim Akers & The Smoking Section), David Frey (Sidewalk Prophets), Blanca and Jasmine Murray

It had a true throwback vibe with the large horn section from the Tim Akers & the Smoking Section and these 80’s songs like “The Power of Love” (Huey Lewis), Ain’t No Mountain High Enough (Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell)I Knew You Were Waiting (George Michael & Aretha Franklin), September (Earth Wind & Fire) and Superstition (Stevie Wonder)!

While the video is a little skewed the sound it good, so enjoy!!  Thanks Tim!!!

Danny Gokey, the Hope Encounter 2019

The Danny Gokey Band Wows a Sold Out Show

I was fortunate to take in the final concert of Danny Gokey’s “Hope Encounter Tour” at a suburb of Chicago.  This was likely the biggest sell out audience of the tour.  It was announced that the Naperville venue had over 2,700 attendees!  I can believe it!  I also think it was the largest VIP line I had ever seen.  I conservatively estimated 200 people (my husband thought it was closer to 300) waited in line to have a picture taken with Danny before the VIPs could claim the best seats for the night.
