“Summerfest is probably the one show, the most rewarding show for me as an artist, it’s a real festival for me to play at,” Danny Gokey says. “It’s just the hometown crowd.”
It’s been 6 (long) years since Danny Gokey has headlined a stage at the “World’s Largest Music Festival” in his hometown of Milwaukee, WI. But on Sunday, July 2nd he returns for Summerfest’s 50th Anniversary celebration! Danny will return to the Briggs & Stratton “Big Backyard Stage” at 6 PM for a family friendly time and show.
We head back to 2010 for this video— what a year it was for Danny Gokey! He returned to his hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to headline the Briggs & Stratton stage at Summerfest. The crowd to see Danny was HUGE as he returned to his hometown– just a year after his 3rd place finish on “American Idol”. You can tell in this video how emotionally moved Danny is by the crowd response and their singing every word of his first single! We are glad to see that Danny has re-introduced MBDAAM to his current tour set list.
Recently Danny Gokey returned to his FIRST hit, “My Best Days Are Ahead of Me”, at his charity event. The song fit Danny’s outlook on life and his future in music when he released it in 2009. It still fits today!
If you haven’t watched this video in awhile, or if you are new to Danny’s music, we think you will enjoy these two versions!
The first is the video released when Danny was signed to RCA Nashville.
