More videos! The first is Danny Gokey and Natalie Grant performing a Christmas classic in their just ended Celebrate Christmas Tour. This one takes me back to original from The Charlie Brown Christmas, but the smooth vocals from this duo are more pleasing to me today.
We fell in love with “Give Me Jesus” when Danny Gokey added the song to his Christmas album, “Christmas is Here“. Danny has taken it to an even higher level by the simple staging and his beautiful closing.
Danny Gokey and the rest of the Rock and Worship Roadshow toured Oregon, Washington and Idaho last weekend. There were big, crowded arenas and we are fortunate to get some great videos as a result of ALL those people attending!
Big thanks to gee321saiko for sharing her concert footage of Danny Gokey singing:
“It is Well With My Soul”, “Hope in Front of Me”, “More Than You Think I Am”, “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again”, “It’s Not Over” and a bit of “Give Me Jesus”.
A Full Circle Story from Longtime Danny Gokey fan, Jill
Jill K. first meet Danny in Portland for the American Idol LiveShow at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in 2009! Seven years later, they meet again at the same venue! Here are some excerpts from Jill’s story:
“If you know me, you likely know that there are a few musicians that have played a huge role in my life and my journey over the past 7-8 years. One in particular in someone that I’ve written about before in my blogs, has a very special place in my heart, and someone I had a chance to re-connect with last night.
Danny Gokey joined host Susie Larson of the radio program “Live the Promise” to share MANY of his new Christmas songs, tell how they were written or selected to be on “Christmas is Here” and also his back story on meeting Sophia and the loss that led up to establishing his charity, Sophia’s Heart.
I am sure you are going to LOVE this interview as much as I did! It was a thrill to hear “Mary Did You Know”, “O Holy Night”, “Lift Up Your Hearts” and “Give Me Jesus” on my local radio for the first time as well as clips from many of the other songs!
