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”.
