Video: Behind the Music – Wanted

Wanted by Danny Gokey

Danny Gokey and his team are getting ready to release the next single, “Wanted”.  They have just released this video of the story behind the writing of the song with Jess Cates.

Jess has many successful songs check out the list HERE.

We don’t know the impact date, yet, for “Wanted” but with the fact that it is one of the Top 5 songs being streamed by the radio industry, it must be soon –  and the official music video was shot in Nashville this week!

Danny Gokey and Coby James head out at the end of the month for the second year of the Hope Encounter Tour! The first show takes place on Thursday, September 26 in LaFayette LA and concludes Novermber 17th in Naperville, IL.

We’re guessing the song list will include his singles (HIFOM, TYHTBA, MTYTIA, Rise, The Comeback, Masterpiece, IYAII, and HSIY) and then some songs from his recently released album: Fighter, New Day, Wanted, Love God, Love People, and then???
