Danny Gokey

Three-time Grammy Nominee, three-time KLOVE Male Vocalist of the Year, Dove Award winner, and eight-time Dove Award Nominee, Danny Gokey became a favorite of millions of fans as a Top 3 finalist on Season Eight of American Idol. Following Idol, Gokey dropped his first album, My Best Days and has since celebrated a series of No. 1s including his follow-up Christian releases Hope In Front of Me, Rise, Haven’t Seen It Yet, Jesus People and holiday albums, Christmas Is Here and The Greatest Gift. Spawning singles like, “We All Need Jesus”  “Rise,” “The Comeback,” “Love God Love People,” and RIAA Gold-certified “Hope In Front of Me”,  “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” and “Haven’t Seen It Yet,” Danny Gokey has cemented his place on the Christian radio charts with multi-week, multi-chart-topping runs in the United States, Canada, and now Latin markets with the releases of Spanish singles and collaborations. The desire to make a broader impact with his message of hope led to the founding of nonprofit organization Better Than I Found It, which is doing community giveback ‘Bus Stops’ during his touring initiatives. He and his wife Leyicet also launched Livin’ la Vida Gokey, a podcast featuring conversations about faith and family. They currently live outside Nashville, TN with their four beautiful children, Daniel, Victoria, Gabriel, and Emanuel.”
