Danny Gokey’s Laughs with Randy Travis Typical of Personality

Hello all!

I am Terry Morehouse, business administrator and music pastor of Faith Builders International Ministries in Beloit, Wis.

I have worked extensively with “American Idol” finalist Danny Gokey. I’m going to be spending some time with you throughout the next few weeks to talk about Danny.

I believe he is going to the end, so we’ll be together here at Everyday Christian for a while.

Danny led Praise and Worship at both Faith Builders locations in Beloit and Milwaukee for many years under the leadership of senior pastors Jeffrey and Robin Pruitt. I have had the pleasure of being with Danny on the music team here in Beloit for five years and usher people in the presence of the Lord with song and music.

Danny is an outstanding individual with a very pure heart. He loves God with all his heart! We will get into more of that in future blogs.

Tuesday night was another awesome performance for Danny on “American Idol” singing Carrie Underwood’s “Jesus, Take the Wheel.” I really thought he tore it up again!

Seeing him laugh with Randy Travis like he did was so typical of Danny! My wife and I laughed right with him because that’s just who he is. He absolutely loves to laugh! Who doesn’t?

I do think that his performance of “P.Y.T.” the week before was over the top, though. You need to get the studio version of that on iTunes. It’s amazing!

I think that many of the other contestants are incredible as well, so it’s going to be a tough competition from here on.

I’d like to hear from you. Please leave a comment below.

    I thought I had caught wind of Danny being a Christian, but it is hard when the media keeps things os focused on certain things. As a fan of American Idol, I find it so refreshing that Danny is a Christian and would love to hear him sing a Christian song on the show. How amazing would it be if he broke out something even most people would still be familiar with, like a Michael W. Smith song?!
