Billboard End of Year Charts Success for Danny Gokey

Single Art for Masterpiece by Danny Gokey2017 was a very good year for Danny Gokey!

Especially when you see the results of Billboard‘s year-end charts!

Danny’s achieved an impressive fifth place on the Christian Airplay Artist Radio Airplay success of his songs, Rise” and The Comeback” — as well as play from his previous hits!

Danny and his songs also ranked on MANY more charts. You can see the best of the chart news below.

But why do I have the lead photo featuring Danny’s song, “Masterpiece”?  Because it is the next single to be released to Christian radio. We are looking forward to see how this ballad will do on radio.  Danny’s last ballad, “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again”, is still being played, streamed and bought.  You can check out “Masterpiece” lyrics and acoustic video HEREContinue reading “Billboard End of Year Charts Success for Danny Gokey”
