About Danny Gokey

Music feeds the soul and few people understand its power better than Danny Gokey. His young life has been a rollercoaster ride and music has been his constant companion. It sustained him following the death of his first wife, Sophia, and it propelled him up the charts after the world discovered his talent on American Idol. Music has shaped his life, providing a sense of purpose and direction, even in the most trying times. On Gokey's new album, Hope in Front of Me, the Milwaukee native delivers a potent collection of songs brought vividly to life by his warm, soulful voice. The project percolates with energy on such vibrant up tempo tunes as "Take it to the Limit" and simmers with emotion on such tunes as the compelling title track where he sings "I know in my soul no matter how bad it gets, I'll be alright. There's hope in front of me." For Gokey, those words are more than just lyrics to a great song.
