Danny Gokey is one of the most refreshing Christian pop artists in the industry today. Being active for less then 10 years as a professional vocalist, he has already released five studio albums. His latest album is called “Haven’t Seen It Yet.” How will it stand against all of his recent successes?
Danny Gokey started his humble career as a singer in his home church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. However, he stated that in this period of his life he would rather record mainstream music than solely Christian gospel. In this period he also became the music director of his home church, while still driving an 18-wheeler for a living.
The big turning point came in 2008, when he participated in American Idol. He decided to pursue his dreams, even after his own wife died less than four weeks prior to his first audition. In the end he took third place of the competition, but this experience definitely boosted his professional musical career to new heights. He signed in 2009 at 19 Recording/RCA Nashville, a major country music label.
He released a few country albums with RCA, but in the end he became more influential as a Christian artist. Under BMG he released his most recent successes like his 2017 hit album “Rise.” This is also the period of his life where all the chart notations and Dove Award nominations start.
Danny Gokey has now released his fifth major album named “Haven’t Seen It Yet,” which brilliantly combines his signature Power-Pop sound with a refreshing contemporary feel. Listen to Danny Gokey’s newest album on Maasbach Radio, Spotify and iTunes.← BackNext →
