Gospel Soundcheck

In case you were living under a rock last night, Danny Gokey was sent home during the results show on American Idol.
I’ve been predicting that Kris would be in the final two; I figured it would be Adam joining him, until Simon asked voters to vote for Adam on Tuesday night. Often, those judge’s comments can backfire, so until yesterday afternoon I thought there was a chance for a Danny/Adam showdown.
Don’t get me wrong; up until a couple of weeks ago I thought Danny would win this season. But the last few weeks I’ve seen Kris grow by leaps and bounds as an artist, so by the end of April I had a sneaking suspicion that Danny might be in trouble.

Not that leaving Idol is a bad thing. He’s still going to tour through the summer with the other 9 finalists, and believe me, there are labels waiting to sign him. My guess is the Christian market is waiting to scoop him up.
And let’s not forget what a great inspiration he’s been to millions of viewers. In the video above, you can see that despite the joy of his Idol experience, the grief over his wife’s death is still fresh, 10 months later. God is working through him, and we haven’t heard the last of Danny Gokey.
