So we just celebrated Danny Gokey day here in Milwaukee and I have to say, he might be one of the nicest guys I’ve encountered in awhile! I’m so glad that we can say the extremely grounded contestant on American Idol is our hometown boy!
Maybe it’s because I’m so sick of all the fighting and lame behavior on reality TV, but I find it so refreshing to see someone like Danny get praise and attention. The funny thing is, the only reason he’s okay with being the center of attention is so he can raise awareness for charity efforts in memory of his wife.
I guess when you go through something as hard as losing the love of your life, singing in front of millions of Americans each week and facing Simon Cowell’s harsh words is easier than you think.
Go Gokey Go!
