Danny Gokey

Although he largely stuck to gospel and soul music during his time on American Idol, Danny Gokey transformed himself into a country artist following the show's conclusion. Born on April 24, 1980, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he was raised in a large family and began singing during weekly church services. Gokey's interest in religion and music continued to shape his adolescence, and he became the music director of Faith Builders International Ministries during his mid-twenties. Meanwhile, he married his high-school sweetheart, a fellow churchgoing music fan named Sophia Martinez, and lived with her for four years.

In 2008, Martinez underwent surgery for congenital heart disease and died during the operation. An enthusiastic fan of American Idol, she had asked Gokey to audition for the show on several occasions. He ultimately auditioned that summer -- a mere four weeks after her passing -- and became one of the show's early frontrunners, sailing through each round with his gruff, soulful vocals and tear-jerking back-story. Gokey ultimately finished third in the competition, with only Adam Lambert and Kris Allen receiving more votes.

The American Idols LIVE! Tour kept him busy until September 2009, at which point he signed with 19 Recordings (in conjunction with RCA Nashville) and set to work on a country album. His first single, "My Best Days Are Ahead of Me," peaked at number 29 on the country chart, and he rang in the New Year by releasing a full-length record, My Best Days, in early 2010. Gokey's sophomore album, Hope in Front of Me, appeared in 2014 and featured the single "More Than You Think I Am." In 2015, he delivered the holiday album Christmas Is Here. ~ Andrew Leahey

Ya know in every generation there is a singer or group that touches my heart in a very special way, the 60's & 70's was Love Song, then the 80's came the real start of contemporary Christian music as we know it today with Amy Grant and Keith Green, then came DC Talk in the 90's, now I listen to your music and it just hits me in a special way, Love your music, Thank you and don't stop.

just wanted you to know... you still have new fans in the making! Tell your heart to beat again will forever be remembered as a song sent to me by My Father above just at the right time! Surprised to hear you went country, but country does allow you to weave your faith into it. May the good Lord continue to Bless you Indeed.
