DANNY GOKEY TO RELEASE ANTICIPATED HOLIDAY ALBUM
CHRISTMAS IS HERE
TO SUPPORT ITS OCTOBER 16TH RELEASE,
DANNY IS NOW ON A 3-MONTH NATIONAL TOUR
 

 

On October 16th, Danny Gokey will release a collection of holiday songs entitled Christmas Is Here. Recently nominated for the Dove Awards 2015 Song of the Year & New Artist of the Year, Danny follows up his #1 selling sophomore album Hope In Front Of Me, with this finely crafted album featuring original songs and holiday favorites such as “White Christmas” and “Mary, Did You Know?,” – all of which showcases the depth and breadth of Danny’s artistry as a songwriter and vocalist.
Produced by award-winning music legend Keith Thomas (Burt Bacharach, Amy Grant, The Jam), Christmas Is Here infuses Danny’s soulful sound into many of the classic songs of the holidays that will make this anticipated holiday album a fan favorite for years to come.
“My fans have been asking for a Christmas album for years, telling me my voice would be perfect for these songs. Everyone had their favorite songs that they wanted me to include, so we tried to get in as many as possible” says Danny. “I’m really proud of the way it turned out. Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year and it’s really fun to be able to share it with my fans in this way!”
Each song on Christmas Is Here reverberates with the emotional honesty and life-affirming messages that have become hallmarks of Danny’s music. On Monday September 25th, Danny will release the album’s first single “Lift Up Your Eyes,” a new classic – written by Danny – that can stand alongside holiday favorites thanks to a voice that catapulted Danny into the homes of millions.
Music has shaped Danny’s life, providing a sense of purpose and direction. Since earning two chart-topping albums and a Barnes & Noble Top 5 autobiography, Danny launched Sophia’s Heart, an organization founded to provide hope and help to homeless families in crisis. Danny is proud of the way Sophia’s Heart has expanded to care for a growing number of families each year, including a thriving inner city Music & Arts program in Danny’s hometown of Milwaukee, WI.
Danny has toured with Taylor Swift, Sugarland, along with other high profile acts, and to promote Christmas Is Here, Danny is now on a 3-month tour that includes headline dates, a slot on this year’s Beating Hearts Tour and a 16-date Christmas tour in December. Tour dates below.
