Mary, Did You Know?

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.

You can find the recorded song here.

Danny will return for the conversation with Mark and Andrew in 2019 (and to sing “Rise”?)  We’ll let you know when we see that episode!mark Lowry and Danny Gokey on Dinner Conversations Continue reading “Christmas Dinner Conversations: with Danny Gokey”

How fun is this?

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.[3] 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),
