Danny Gokey – American Idol Season 8 Top 36 Contestant

Danny Gokey – Kansas City – 28 – Milwaukee, WI

Danny’s audition package featured footage of him proposing to his wife, who died four weeks before his audition, of a congenital heart condition.Eyebrows were definitely raised as Danny grieved openly, on camera, over home movies of his proposal to her.   While his singing could have carried the day, the backstory plus generous screentime will more than likely guarantee Danny a spot in the Top 12.
