Don & Linda are committed fans to Danny Gokey, this story ALL started when they heard the song “Hope in Front of Me”  broadcast on K-LOVE radio:

“We felt that they can relate to Danny story of loss and overcoming, while trusting in God will reduce the pain, as he sings from the heart and through his voice and the way he sings, we can feel that Danny is talking to us personally. “Hope in Front of Me” then became important part of our worship time (worship by hearing), connecting to the Almighty God and having fun listening to it. Our favorite time was when we go for a ride; let our windows down feeling the wind blowing, and listening to “Hope in Front of Me.”  This was part of our life; it’s like our favorite part of the day.  After we got hooked up on this song, we started following all Danny’s Gokey songs and concerts, we also voted for him and encouraged our friends to do so.

Danny music, experience and voice are a great example of “worship by hearing,” where one can connect to God leaving any pain behind and feeling the joy of the Lord and what He can do for us; Danny has very encouraging story and wonderful voice that make us very connected.”

Don and his wife Linda were spending their fifth wedding anniversary in a hospital room……

Don was diagnosed with four simultaneous hemorrhagic strokes on one day. If he hadn’t been in the hospital at the time, he would not have survived.

Although Don was in a coma, he was still able to respond to Linda. If she’d ask him a question, he’d squeeze her hand. They were both fans of musician, Danny Gokey, particularly a song entitled, “Hope in Front of Me”.

That I thought would never end
Trying to make it on faith
