American Idol Season 8 Alum Danny Gokey is back with an inspirational tune that will lift your spirits and inspire you. Danny knows all about spirit and going on. In his book ‘Hope in Front of Me: Find Purpose in Your Darkest Moments ‘ he walked you through a few the most intimate struggles any person can go through.
I had a chance to meet him earlier this year and he was wonderfully sincere, kind and welcoming.
“People know me from my story,” said Gokey, who lost his first wife, Sophia Martinez, to complications following heart surgery for congenital heart disease. He founded Sophia’s Heart, a non-profit organization based in Nashville that helps homeless families in crisis get back on their feet. (Last year, 40 families resided in the organization’s 70,000-square-foot building.) “I walked through a great amount of pain in the loss of a spouse, and since then, people haven’t really seen the redemption side. So with these songs, I am showing the redemptive side of the journey.”
Now Danny wants you to embrace that same promise of hope.
Take a listen:
Danny wants you to know:
I’m very thankful, because there is a lot of great talent that came off American Idol, and to say that I am making a second record — not a lot of people get that opportunity. Sophia’s Heart hasn’t been easy. Everyone said I was crazy doing Sophia’s Heart, but these are the things I believe in. I believe in my music. I believe in helping people who are down. I believe I have something to offer…this year is my year, and I feel this is my opportunity to really just show what I’m about.
