Three-time Grammy Nominee Danny Gokey Releases EP in Celebration of America
NASHVILLE, June 23, 2023 /Christian Newswire/ — Three-time Grammy Nominee Danny Gokey is bold about a love for his country and he’s on a mission to unite all Americans—at least musically. On June 23, Gokey will release a three song EP in celebration of our great country titled Brave that includes a powerful cover of Lee Greenwood’s God Bless the USA along with two original songs, Brave and My America.
“I still believe in America,” said Gokey. “We’re not perfect – we’ve made our mistakes. But I still believe that God has used, and will continue to use, America to do great things. Rather than argue about our differences we can choose to agree on our one major common denominator – freedom. And freedom is worth celebrating.”
Accompanying this highly-anticipated EP release is a music video for “My America,” dropping the same day. His hope is to help people fall back in love with this Nation, and the many freedoms we enjoy. Gokey is also performing at two patriotic events leading up to July 4th:
- June 30th performing at Celebrate America in Sacramento, CA
- July 1st performing at Freedom Music Fest in Downey, CA
“As Christians, our aim should be to have a positive influence on everything and everyone, including our country,” said Gokey. “It may not always seem like it, but God is in control, and has a purpose for America, and my hope is for people to find the courage to stand firm in and up for that! It’s not just ‘my’ America, ‘their’ or ‘your’ America. It’s ‘our’ America and I believe that we can still make an impact, if we are united!”
Gokey’s social media platforms have garnered him over two million followers. Following Idol, Gokey dropped his first album, My Best Days, which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart. Since that time, Danny has celebrated a series of #1s including his follow up album releases Hope In Front of Me, Rise, Haven’t Seen It Yet, Jesus People, and holiday albums, Christmas Is Here and The Greatest Gift.
