The official video of “The Comeback” is now available! You may recognize it from Danny Gokey’s performance at the K-LOVE Fan Awards in late May. At the awards show Danny won Male Artist of the Year! See the full post HERE. Or you can view his acceptance of the award below:
Danny performed it with the Blackman Cheerleading Squad. We think its just whats needed to push “The Comeback” to the top of the charts.
Note: We will update this post with the full video on Thursday!

Danny Gokey has big chart moves for his single, “The Comeback”
It breaks into the Top 20 on three different Billboard Christian Charts.

2. It moves to #28 (from #30) Billboard Christian AC Chart. “Rise” remains on the chart at #8 (7)
Are you excited for the relaunch of “American Idol” in 2018?
Do yo remember voting for Danny Gokey on “American Idol” or sitting on pins and needles to hear if he was “safe” for another week? Some of us owe (or blame?) “American Idol” for helping us find some amazing artists. Maybe even our FAVORITE artist. (And in my case, sucking up an incredible amount of time. But it is all good; I have some awesome friends from it, too!)
In a recent article by Fred Bronson for Billboard, he talks about what he would like to see in the reboot of the iconic show. And we are pleased that out of the 150 artists that made the top 10 through those fifteen seasons, he has this to say:
THE CONTESTANTS: We’ve always believed that Idol rises and falls on the shoulders of the contestants. The series found a lot of amazing talent over 15 years………. Give us a talent roster as great as Ruben Studdard, Clay Aiken and Kimberley Locke or Carrie Underwood, Bo Bice and Vonzell Solomon or David Cook, David Archuleta and Syesha Mercado or Kris Allen, Adam Lambert and Danny Gokey, and we’ll be happy.
While the audience for this promo is radio professionals, I wanted to share this at DGNews because we love support that Danny Gokey‘s new single, The Comeback, is getting!
We have to give a shout out to Danny’s management, Maximum Artist, his label BMG, his radio promo team of Chris Hauser, Matt Ingle, Josh Lauritch, and ALL of the stations already supporting “The Comeback” (TC). BRAVO!!
