Danny Gokey and the Hope In Front Of Me

danny gokey

Danny Gokey has landed himself a book deal. The former American Idol contestant shared the story of his wife Sophia during the show’s eighth season and promises to reveal more in his writing.

“It has been a gratifying process to be able to share the parts of my story that many people may not know,” says Gokey. “My hope is that people can find a part of their story in mine and that it will inspire hope in others. There are new beginnings. You can recover after devastating loss. Your past does not have to define you or your future.”

The book is called Hope In Front Of Me and is scheduled for release this October.

Danny Gokey

Danny Gokey officially announced the 3rd Annual Cruise for Sophia’s Heart Foundation today. The cruise will set sail from Port Canaveral, Florida on February 24, 2013 with Gokey, Season 8 American Idol Winner Kris Allen and The Voice finalist Jamar Rogers on board. The cruise, benefiting Sophia’s Heart, will kick off with a VIP reception on opening night for guests who book cabins by October 31st. The reception will feature an intimate welcome and meet & greet with Gokey, Allen and Rogers. All guests on the four-day Bahamas Cruise will enjoy concerts, meet & greets, silent and live auctions, dinners and more with each artist.

“I’m excited that we get to do this benefit cruise again for the third year,” says Gokey. “Last year’s cruise raised over $23,000 to help fund our programming, which was a tremendous blessing to the families who have come through Sophia’s Heart this year. Everyone that knows me knows Sophia’s Heart is a huge part of my life and I’m so thankful for all the support over the past few years.”

Since moving to Nashville following American Idol, Gokey has been busy helping homeless children and families in a 77,000 square foot facility donated to Sophia’s Heart in late 2010. The proceeds from the cruise will allow Sophia’s Heart to support compassion programs in Nashville including homeless children, families and efforts to assist victims rescued from human trafficking.

To book a cabin on the 3rd Annual Cruise for Sophia’s Heart, please visit www.sophiasheart.org or contact Sophia’s Heart Cruise Hotline at 1-888-644-4349.
