We welcome to start of 2021. The year 2020 was nothing like we expected a year ago. We are ready for change and with 2021 comes Danny Gokey’s 4th single, “New Day”, off of his “Haven’t Seen it Yet” album.
This song has over 4 million views on YouTube. And “New Day” (#36) and “Love God, Love People” (#9) are on the current CAC Mediabase radio chart! LGLP will be heading down shortly, but ND is moving quickly with 18 stations starting it (thanks Houston, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Tulsa, Tampa to just name a few!) Continue reading “Welcome 2021!

This new collaboration with Evan Craft and Redimi2 (who assisted Danny on his Spanish version of
“Love God, Love People, Ama A Dios Y A Tu Vecino is a great addition to my collection of Danny Gokey music. The video is interesting too (I like old trucks and that VW Bug station wagon is the bomb!)
It was the wish of some of us to do a revisit of Danny’s version of “My Wish” from his “American Idol” tour in 2009 as a part of Season 8. So, I searched my archives and came up with this special nugget!
I also have the youtube of Danny’s performance of the same song in his hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Those were some huge crowds!
Danny Gokey took to video to encourage the graduates of 2020 in his video message – with song for a Celebrate Youth Convocation Conference. the virtual conference was sponsored by the National Collaboration for Youth Mental Health.
In the ten minute video Danny congratulates the 2020 graduates, shares his struggles with mental health as a young person and encourages them with his songs “No Pressure” and “New Day”.
With the Covid-19 Pandemic causing the cancellation of most public events (including concerts) we have been lucky to see Danny through multiple streaming performances. The above photo is from Danny’s singing of “Haven’t Seen It Yet” as a part of Saddleback Church‘s April 26th online service. They have uploaded his performance and I’ve included it below:
We’ve added a few videos from Danny’s Instagram account.
Danny Gokey’s third single from his latest album, “Haven’t Seen It Yet” is just starting to get radio play. Will it pass “Wanted” that peaked at #22 on the Billboard National Christian Airplay chart on 1/31/2020? Currently a few stations are spinning it. Hopefully April will see program directors embrace this song with such a positive message during this troubled time.
