Danny Gokey

Christian Singer-Songwriter, Third Place Finalist on "American Idol" & Philanthropist

Danny Gokey Biography

Danny Gokey is a Christian singer-songwriter from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was the third-place finalist on the eighth season of “American Idol.” Gokey's “American Idol” audition occurred only four weeks after his wife's death from complications caused by congenital heart disease in July 2008. After his placing on the show, Gokey signed to 19 Recordings and RCA Nashville at the beginning of a career in country music, releasing the single "My Best Days Are Ahead of Me." His debut album, My Best Days, was released in March 2010.

After leaving RCA Nashville in November 2011, he gravitated his music towards an adult pop/contemporary Christian sound and subsequently made a record/publishing deal with BMG in May 2013. His second full-length album, Hope in Front of Me, was released in June 2014. Before rising to fame on “American Idol,” Gokey worked as a church music director, while also driving a semi-truck for a local logistics company for two years.

Gokey started a foundation in the name of his late wife, Sophia's Heart Foundation, with some of her family members who are also musicians. With branches in Milwaukee, Nashville, and Sacramento, the organization's goals are to provide hope and help to homeless families, provide scholarships to deserving students and operate a thriving inner-city music and arts program.
