American Idol season 8 singer Danny Gokey premiered his new Spanish language song “La Esperanza Frente a Me” last week. The song is the title track of the Christian singer’s new Spanish language album which came out Friday.
Danny told Billboard magazine that his first encounter with Spanish songs was when singing religious songs with his Christian band. Since finishing Idol in 3rd place in 2009, and time spent on a country music label, Danny reached No. 1 on the Christian albums charts with Hope in Front of Me in 2914.
The new Spanish album is a collection of songs that “defined his life” and have become the soundtrack to his mission Danny told Billboard. The track list includes Spanish versions of his hits like “Better Than Gold (La joya más especial)” and “Tell Your Heart To Beat Again (Que tu corazón vuelva a latir).”
