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

Wow did not know that about him! Glad he was able to rise above the grief! I too lost my husband in 2012 to Ewings Sarcoma, Air 1 helped me including artists like this and lots and lots of prayer and alone time with Christ.

It is always encouraging, to hear your songs. I have lost a lot of my family and I've also lost my self in the process. By listening, I was reminded that there is a purpose in all the pain... An ultimate love that would bring you through it. God's love. Thank you so much, for sharing your testimony through your music.

Aloha Danny, God's planned journeys for disciples to plant seeds of their own on the experiences that equipped them with the wisdom of what you've gone through. Only in the name of Jesus these seeds are watered and on his words these will BLOOM where they are planted
