Danny Gokey Wraps 2013 with Hope as Memoir Continues to Inspire

(New York, NY – January 6th, 2014) - Nashville recording artist Danny Gokey wrapped 2013 on a high note with a New Year's Eve guest musical appearance and book signing and is looking forward to continuing to spread his inspiring message of hope in the New Year.

Danny Gokey became a favorite of millions of fans as a top-3 finalist on the eighth season of American Idol. While the 13th season of American Idol gears up to premiere January 15th, Danny is currently in the recording studio working on new music and a new album slated for an early 2014 release. His debut release, My Best Days debuted at number 4 on the Billboard 200 charts and made history by delivering the best first-week sales by any debut country male in 18 years.

Gokey stepped onto the famed American Idol stage just four weeks after his wife’s heart-wrenching death. Though rocked by his loss, Danny never lost hope as he pursued the life-long dream he had shared with his wife, Sophia. “It has been a gratifying process to be able to share the parts of my story that many people may not know. My hope is that people can find a part of their story in mine and that it will inspire hope in others. There are new beginnings. You can recover after devastating loss. Your past does not have to define you or your future. And the greatest part of my story is that helping others brings healing to you and those you help,” says Gokey.
