Night of Joy Artist Spotlight: Danny Gokey

From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Charles Stovall

From time to time, we at the Disney Parks Blog like to showcase some of the artists who will be performing at Disney Night of Joy.

This week, we’re highlighting a relative newcomer to the Contemporary Christian Music scene – Danny Gokey.

The author of some of the most soul-provoking music in the industry right now, Gokey came to most of the public’s attention through his appearance on American Idol. His inspiring story of triumph over tragedy – along with a spectacular voice and emotional delivery – touched the hearts of the show’s viewers.

Since that “break,” Gokey has stormed through the industry with hit after hit like “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again,” “Hope In Front of Me”, “Rise”, “More Than You Think I Am.” His latest album Rise is debuted at #1 on the Christian Billboard chart and his newest single “The Comeback” is currently climbing the Christian music charts propelling the album to even more success.

We were honored to host Danny recently for a quick tour of the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, where this year’s concerts will be held.
