Acoustic Session: Danny Gokey Sings “Haven’t Seen It Yet”
While Danny Gokey served up two versions of his lead single, “Haven’t Seen It Yet’ on his new album, we wish this rich, acoustic version was also included!
In this video, Danny’s guitarist Miguel Perez, pianist Sam Montanez, and three background singers perform a stirring version. I love the whole thing, but those background singers are impressive!
Update – We were happy to see this as we very much enjoyed the vocal performances in the new acoustic video. All of the three background singers posted to their instagram highlighting their performances. Their names are Bethany Cruz, Terrell Hunt and Sharlisa Brooks. Bethany is credited as a background vocalist in the recorded track for Have You Seen It yet, according to the album notes.
Danny Gokey is on the road this week promoting his latest album, “Haven’t Seen It Yet” which will be officially released tomorrow. If you haven’t yet ordered the album, you can find it here.
Check back in with us at this post frequently for additional media and other updates as we find them from Danny’s busy album launch schedule.

With the third song available from his upcoming album Haven’t Seen It Yet, we have “Wanted”. Here is what Danny says about this new song: (Available now HERE.)
“This song means a lot to me because it was written from God’s perspective to those who have been hurt by so many things in life that they couldn’t control and as a result, they feel lost, damaged or unworthy. If this is you, the Father has your heart and he wants to restore it! His love goes so far beyond what you can imagine and he wants you to know that you ARE wanted! I pray that message sinks deep into the hearts of those who are hurting.”
You can now pre-order Danny Gokey’s newest album HERE. Amazon will have it shipped to you for the release. My experience is that Amazon might even get it to us a day early…. but either way you can have your hands on a hard copy of his latest music!
What are your thoughts on the cover art? I think it’s pretty cool.
Danny Gokey’s recently released lead single, “Haven’t Seen It Yet“, may be his fastest moving song on the Billboard charts! With the February 16th charts it moves into:
TOP 20 on the Billboard Christian Airplay peaked at #19 as the “Greatest Gainer” (lw23).
TOP 10 on the Billboard Christian Digital Song chart at #8! (LW #17) It is also the highest gainer in digital sales!
Also Top 20 on the Hot Christian Songs #20 (lw 24).
Some big stations, like K-LOVE, Sirius XM, KSBJ- Houston, KLJY- St Louis, KTIS- Minnepolis, KLTY – Dallas and KVMV – McAllen have thrown their support to this song. The exposure is clearly working as the song is climbing in digital sales. If you’d like to add to the sales count, you can find the song here.
The video is clearly popular, too. It’s closing in on half a million views in the 12 days its been out!
Danny Gokey performed a few of his songs in studio at Joy FM on his radio tour promoting his new single, “Haven’t Seen It Yet”. We are glad to see Danny’s former guitar player, Joshua Lutz, reunited with Danny for this event!
