When you can bring the writer of a song to tears, you know you have something special. Danny Gokey appeared on Mark Lowry and Andrew Greer’s YouTube series, Dinner Conversations, and that is exactly what happened when Danny sang Mark’s classic song. You can watch Danny and guitarist Miguel Perez’s performance at the 13:30 mark of the following video. Also performing in this episode is Andrew Greer, Matt Lowry, Matt Maher, Crystal Lewis, Ginny Owens, Jaci Velasquez and Nic Gonzales.
The first organization to be helped by Danny Gokey’s new charity is People Loving Nashville
“After 10 years of serving the homeless in downtown Nashville, our friends at People Loving Nashville needed a new home to be able to continue what they do. They only had a 30 day notice to vacate their current kitchen and find another place!”
In the video below, Danny Gokey explains his vision behind his new tour, the Hope Encounter, and his new charity “Better Than I Found It”/Be a Light in this interview with Andrew Greer. Also, Danny performs an acoustic performance of “Hope in Front of Me”
When Danny Gokey takes on a hit song by Justin Timberlake, we think it deserves its own post! Here is Danny encouraging us to dance, dance, dance! We were happily surprised to hear this pop song in Danny’s set, but it sure fits the theme of this tour. You go, Danny!
This song debuted atop the US Billboard Hot 100, opening with 379,000 downloads in its first week, marking Timberlake’s fifth number one single in the country, and making it the twenty-sixth song on the Hot 100 history to start at the summit of the chart. Additionally, it became the second song to spend its first ten weeks atop the Digital Songs chart. It was written, sung and produced by Justin Timberlake for the soundtrack to the film Trolls(2016),
Can you believe its been 4 years since Danny released the album “Hope in Front of Me”? I found this fun video when he returned to Wisconsin to promote the album. This is a local talk show in Milwaukee, the “Morning Blend”.
