Danny Gokey was a Praise Band Leader at 2 churches in Wisconsin.
Once he was married, his wife always told him that he should try out for American Idol.
One day she went in for routine surgery. She told him and made him promise that if anything happened to her, he would audition.
She died during that surgery.
He kept his promise and finished in the top 10 at last years American Idol.
He has released an album, and his song, My Best Days is very inspirational.
You can hear it here;
We have found that story so interesting that the Pastor at my church has taken that message and is doing a series on this concept.
And it is a good concept....regardless of where you are in life, your best days can be ahead of you.
BTW, we played that song at church this past Sunday. It rocked.
