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, WI, 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 charts, and he rang in the New Year by releasing a full-length record, My Best Days, in early 2010. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

I know him!! My mom is friends with his cousin. I was in his house!!!!
Idol favorite of mine. It's a blessing all the Christians don't make it to no.1 because then the area adorned into a contract that may dictate the songs he sings (my understandin g ) this way he had a choice. Glad you ARE STILL FOLLOWING AFTER God. May he continue to richly bless you as your music blesses us.

My name is Katrina. Very brief cause I'm having a hard night.... My 6 year old daughter was kidnapped over 4 years now and I want to take this time to say thank you Danny because your song "I Will Not Say Goodbye" is what keeps me grasping onto the seconds, minutes, hours, and days. That song is my life saver right now thank you so much for giving me that little bit more strength to keep moving on
Ok

I have rooted for Danny Gokey since his first audition on american idol. There is a conviction in his voice that is truly inspiring. I was glad to see that he stuck by his beliefs, even on national TV where there is so much pressure not to. I wish him the absolute best in his career and personal life.
He sings at our church! Also he started a Sophia's heart ministry at our church!!!!!! ! ! !
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works
He has a new album coming out soon. I'm looking forward to hearing it!
I followed Danny on American Idol and wished he would have won it because he was way better than the other two. I will continue to follow him and I love his voice and he sings very heartfelt songs.
I like anything Danny sings! Best rendition of You are so beautiful on AI that I've ever heard!!
He has the best voice
sally.j.onei l
Meaning...hi s voice is too soft and pop-like for country. Not, well....just not manly enough. Sorry!
sally.j.onei l
OK, I liked Danny on AI and still do.....but.. . . c o m e on.......the r e ain't nothin' country about him really.
I followed him on AI and was hoping he would stay with Christian. I love his voice
I sang "endless love" with danny gokey at a wedding just a year before he went on American Idol! He didn't know the song, so he learned it for the wedding and he ended up singing it on AI! So cool! Love his music and how he is as a person!
Love Danny, and anything he sings sounds great, He has a great voice
Seen Danny Gokey at the springfield fair in agwam mass he was awesome would go see him again
kerrymae101
Danny is an inspiration about walking through the tough tmes and getting to the otherside. He music fills my heart and that soulful gospel sound lifts me up. Yes, I beleive America was wrong in their voting, but once again, it isn't always the winner of the show that comes out on top. Looking forward to hearing more from him. I can't wait for him to come to Seattle or tacoma so I can see him in person. WTG Danny
