Vote for your Favorite Artists in the CCM Magazine Readers’ Choice Fan Awards!
CCM Magazine is no longer a print magazine, but their online version is bringing back their readers’ survey to find out your favorite male artist, female artist, group. and song of the year. We logged in with an email and found that Danny Gokey is nominated for male artist of the year, along with a lot of other really fabulous artists.
We don’t know if Danny will get a trophy to put on his mantel if he wins, but maybe he will return to the cover of their online edition?
The first organization to be helped by Danny Gokey’s new charity is People Loving Nashville
“After 10 years of serving the homeless in downtown Nashville, our friends at People Loving Nashville needed a new home to be able to continue what they do. They only had a 30 day notice to vacate their current kitchen and find another place!”
In the video below, Danny Gokey explains his vision behind his new tour, the Hope Encounter, and his new charity “Better Than I Found It”/Be a Light in this interview with Andrew Greer. Also, Danny performs an acoustic performance of “Hope in Front of Me”
Danny Gokey and his wife, Leyicet, walked the Red Carpet for the K-LOVE Fan Awards and this interview is with CCM Magazine. (Danny was nominated for Male Artist of the Year and Artist of the Year.)

In Danny Gokey’s interview he talks about the next phase of Sophia’s Heart. He relayed that he has renamed the charity as “Better Than I Found It” and that they are filming the first segment. He also relayed the difficulties in running a homeless shelter with the limited funds they could raise.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard Danny Gokey talk about his charitable organization, Sophia’s Heart. In this interview at the GMA Dove Awards with CCM Magazine‘s Nicole Mullen, we learn that SHF is in the midst of a refocusing and developing a strategic new direction. The operations are closed in Nashville (and in Milwaukee? We don’t know.) but they have been supporting other organizations that are building wells, churches, etc.
Danny Gokey spent a week promoting his impactful album, “RISE” — from West Coast to East Coast! He’s finally back home to Nashville — to celebrate Daniel E’s 4th birthday . We wish you a very happy birthday, Danielito!!
“Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” Rises on Radio, Sales
A wonderful article by CCM Magazine features the impact (and success) of Danny Gokey’s third single to Christian radio, “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again”.
“This song has been such an amazing gift,” says Danny Gokey. “People who hear it have an immediate reaction to it because we’ve all been through hurt, loss & disappointment on some level…….Hope again, believe again, dream again, that’s what I want people to walk away with when they hear it!”
While we already know of it’s success at radio according to our Billboard chart news HERE (2nd week at #1 on CAC Indicator Chart and #4 on Christian National Airplay, Digital Songs and Hot Christian Songs!) the article contained tidbits like this:
1) Greatest album sales — even more than release week!– of “Hope in Front of Me” have been reached: 10,161!
2) Single sales of TYHTBA were 8,600 last week!
3) Danny’s recent 28 city tour was in front of 200,000 attendees!
4) Danny will be announcing a summer headlining tour in the next few weeks and in addition, 19 concert dates were included in the article– ~ seven of them new events we will be adding to our Danny Gokey Calendar!
UPDATE!!! Our Thanks to 3rd Day Rocker for providing this video from TBN’s broadcast of Danny performing “HIFOM”.
Danny Gokey walked the 2015 GMA Dove Award Red Carpet with his wife, Leyicet. He also performed his award nominated song, “Hope in Front of Me” to a sold out crowd! I will have a recap from attending these fabulous events– but until I can sort through my many photos and sit down to write, enjoy these videos!
