With the Covid-19 Pandemic causing the cancellation of most public events (including concerts) we have been lucky to see Danny through multiple streaming performances. The above photo is from Danny’s singing of “Haven’t Seen It Yet” as a part of Saddleback Church‘s April 26th online service. They have uploaded his performance and I’ve included it below:
We’ve added a few videos from Danny’s Instagram account.
While Danny and his team are blanketing the radio/media to get the word out about his new CD and single, RISE, we have to lead off with the big hitters! Billboard, People and “American Idol”, of course!
Billboard: Danny Gokey Talks About the Move From Country to Christian Music…
Sometimes taking advice from your heroes doesn’t always turn out like you hope…….Danny Gokey followed mentor Randy Travis’ counsel and began pursuing a career as a country artist. Though Travis told Gokey he’d find success bringing “soul” to the country format, it turns Christian music was the better fit.
Though his country career stalled, Gokey has found his niche in Christian music. The genre is a natural fit for the Milwaukee, Wisconsin native who grew up singing in church.
