DANNY GOKEY NOW ON TOUR IN SUPPORT OF HIS #1 HOLIDAY ALBUM, CHRISTMAS IS HERE

DANNY JOINS THIS YEAR’S K-LOVE CHRISTMAS TOUR

INTIMATE LIVE PERFORMANCE, LYRIC VIDEO & ALBUM STREAM NOW ONLINE

Danny Gokey is thrilled to join this year’s K-Love Christmas tour, which kicked off yesterday with a sold out show in Indianapolis, to support his new holiday album Christmas Is Here which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Holiday Album chart, marking back-to-back #1 records for Danny.

Produced by award-winning music legend Keith Thomas (Burt Bacharach, Amy Grant, The Jam), Christmas Is Here – a finely crafted album featuring original songs and holiday favorites - infuses Danny’s soulful sound into many of the classic songs of the holidays that is making this anticipated holiday album a fan favorite.

The New York Times raves Danny "has a robust voice that allows him to jump among his various identities without seeming out of place … Mr. Gokey is an astute enough singer that his originals — especially the cheerful, goofy ‘Christmas Is Here’ - sound like unearthed chestnuts."

First single and Danny original “Lift Up Your Eyes” stormed onto the Christian radio charts this week as one of only 4 holiday songs to chart. Danny’s rendition of the classic “Mary Did You Know?” was one of the other 3 songs that charted. Danny recently filmed an intimate live performance of “O Holy Night” that you can watch here http://bit.ly/1l9fXDi

"Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year!” says Danny. “There’s a special feeling that comes with Christmas and I wanted people to feel that when they listen to the album and hear me perform these songs live. To feel light hearted and catch the joy that comes with the season.”
