In Honor of Memorial Day: “I Will Not Say Goodbye” by Danny Gokey

Flashback to 2010, but maybe something new fans haven’t seen?

This song and the importance of not forgetting those that gave all for our freedom deserves repeating. 

Memorial Day. A day to pause and remember the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our nation. To honor their legacy, we want to remember them and dedicate the following songs to our lost military and first responders.

“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.” -George S Patton

“I Will Not Say Goodbye” is sung by Danny Gokey and it was his second single with RCA Nashville. The studio version is available on his album “My Best Days”. Danny is accompanied  by Brandon Fraley on piano and with background vocals.  You can acquire the original song from Amazon HERE.

Songwriting, Producing, Touring & More with Danny Gokey

Interview with Sweetwater

Danny Gokey talks about his new album, “Haven’t Seen It Yet”, his writing process, his experience with his music contracts, writing, producing the songs and how he sets his live shows.  He also talks about

  • What he looks for in his musicians for his tour  (he wants his musicians to be “buttery”.)
  • Celebrating others’ talents.
  • Finally, what he means when he says, “He’s not where I should be, but I’m not where I was.”

The best thing I heard is it that he would like to.” add background singers to his live shows!  (I loved how he added horns the last couple of years!)
