Danny Gokey – Yahoo Interview – VIDEO

Last but not least, it’s the Danny Gokey interview with Lindsey Parker of Yahoo Music.

Danny reveals 2 of the 4 songs he’s singing on the Idol tour–“P.Y.T” and “My Wish.” He also mentions talks he had with 19R and his upcoming meetings with record labels (already happened). He hopes to sign a record deal soon.

As far as his sound, he’d like to do a soul/R&B/Latin fusion, but is also considering taking on a modern soul/country sound. Danny admits, “I don’t have much of a twang, but I have that soul.”

Also, he’s OK with not making the Top 2 as predicted–Idol was a launching pad that has put him closer to his dreams.

Danny addresses the cultural aspects of this year’s competition. While he’s a man of faith, he says his is a message of love. He name checks Martin Luther King as an example, and says he’d like to start a movement with his music. Lindsey says she saw no strain or discomfort between any of the Idols, including between Danny and Adam.

Peeps, is there anybody on the country charts representing this modern/soul country thing? Darius Rucker of Hootie and the Blowfish maybe?
