Singer-songwriter Danny Gokey attains the #1 spot on Billboard’s Christian Album Sales chart for his latest album, “Haven’t Seen It Yet”. It is Danny’s first album with Capitol Christian Music Group/Sparrow Records. A fellow label mate, Lauren Daigle continues her reign on the top of the Billboard‘s Top Christian Albums chart (dated April 27), but Danny’s album claims #2 its debut on that chart.
He also debuts on the Christian Streaming Songs chart this week, rises to #4 on the Hot Christian Songs and is just outside the Top 10 (at #11) in the all genre “Top Album Sales” Billboard chart.
We understand from Billboard’s tweet yesterday that Danny’s newest album checks in at #76 on Billboard’s Hot 200 Album chart (all genres) which includes streaming, etc.
From the Billboard Charts, here are some other chart placements:
Danny Gokey was the guest artist for the 24th Anniversary Remembrance Ceremony of the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Twenty four years ago, on April 19, 1995 a car bomb placed by Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, happened at 9:02 am. It killed 168 people, injured more than 680 others, and destroyed one-third of the building.
The ceremony commemorates those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever. After the bagpipes and the invited speakers enter, Danny opened the ceremony by singing “I Will Not Say Goodbye”. Unfortunately the audio for this song is not good. However, I love that Danny was invited to sing such a beautiful and appropriate song for this remembrance gathering. Continue reading “Oklahoma City Bombing Remembered”→

Acoustic Session: Danny Gokey Sings “Haven’t Seen It Yet”
While Danny Gokey served up two versions of his lead single, “Haven’t Seen It Yet’ on his new album, we wish this rich, acoustic version was also included!
In this video, Danny’s guitarist Miguel Perez, pianist Sam Montanez, and three background singers perform a stirring version. I love the whole thing, but those background singers are impressive!
Update – We were happy to see this as we very much enjoyed the vocal performances in the new acoustic video. All of the three background singers posted to their instagram highlighting their performances. Their names are Bethany Cruz, Terrell Hunt and Sharlisa Brooks. Bethany is credited as a background vocalist in the recorded track for Have You Seen It yet, according to the album notes.
Enjoy their instragram comments and performance excerpts below!
