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.

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’s second single from his latest album, “Haven’t Seen It Yet” moves up to #22 on the Billboard National Christian Airplay chart/ Its also nearly top 30 on the Mediabase CAC chart. Good to see it climbing after the holiday break.
