First up, a little bit from the Question & Answer before the concert:
What is your favorite song?
After Natalie said a hymn, Danny said “Give Me Jesus” to which Natalie joked “way to self promote, Danny” and burst out laughing. I love their camaraderie. She said they are like brother and sister and he agreed cause she picks on him but since he grew up with 4 sisters who picked on him, he’s used to it.
What is on your bucket list?
Natalie answered that one of hers has already happened and that was headlining Carnegie Hall but another item she hopes to come true is to live in NYC for 6 months. Danny jokingly said he hopes his album sells a million copies but then in excitement said one item is going to happen in the summer because he has a booking in Hawaii. Wow. Did we know this? (Editor’s note: Yes, we did, but a date and specific location has NOT been announced….)
Setlist for her night:
Free Santa Selfies, kids’ crafts and a host of special activities highlight Santa Fest while new Danny Gokey version of “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” launches holiday campaign!
Adding to the holiday cheer is the launch of a partnership with American Idol alum and BMG recording artist Danny Gokey. Gokey’s exclusive recording of the classic “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” serves as the Bon-Ton Stores’ signature song for the 2016 holiday television campaign. The song will also be a bonus track on Gokey’s award winning holiday CD “Christmas is Here” which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Holiday Album chart last year.
