Danny Gokey has been avidly pursuing a music career since he finished in third place during American Idol’s eighth season. Although he didn’t win that season, he quickly won the hearts of America over when he auditioned for the show just weeks after the tragic passing of his first wife, Sophia.
Tonight, Jan. 23, he released the lyric video of his newest single, “Hope in Front of Me.” The single will be available on iTunes beginning Feb. 18, but the song will be released to radio airwaves starting tomorrow, Jan. 24.
Although he experienced some technical difficulties tonight, Gokey made the official announcement just a short while ago via his Facebook and Twitter pages:
Here it is!!! The official lyric video for my new single "Hope In Front Of Me"
The post was accompanied by the link to the video, which you can take a look at here. Fans have already begun expressing their love for the song in the comments section. “Hope in Front of Me” comes on the heels of Gokey’s first novel, released last October, featuring the same title.
Just last week, Gokey announced he will be putting out a new record this year, under BMG Records. While he does not have any upcoming appearances, Gokey is keeping busy recording the new album and with Sophia’s Heart Foundation, which he started to honor the memory of his first wife.
