Danny and fiance

@dannygokey  Hey guys I’m happy to announce that my wife @leyicet and I are having a baby!! She a little over 3 months pregnant & due in January!!! Yay!!

Twitter is awesome. Thanks Danny for ‘tweeting’ the above announcement to all of your fans. And, just in case we don’t all have Twitter – Danny put it up on facebook, too. It didn’t take long for the announcement to get more than 13,000 ‘Likes” and more than 1200 comments on facebook. And to all that, I want to offer my congratulations to Danny and Leyicet.

For those of you who aren’t following Danny on Twitter, you can add him @dannygokey. And be sure to check out his facebook page, too.

Danny Gokey 096Danny is one of our artists who definitely knows how to use social media. He posts on facebook regularly, and is very good at tweeting. And it’s news. The things he puts up are generally the things we want to know about. On Friday, I noticed his faceook status said: “I feel very accomplished this week. I wrote 3 songs with some great writers. I wish you guys could hear these….they sound amazing!!!!!! Hopefully you will hear these on my sophomore album!” And that’s great – now those of us who didn’t know have gotten the news that Danny is working on his sophomore album… and I know we’ll all be looking forward to the release date.

Most of Danny’s fans are familiar with Sophia’s Heart. If you aren’t, please visit the web site and learn about this nonprofit organization that Danny founded that honors the memory of his first wife. It’s a fantastic organization, and if you can, I hope you will make a little donation while you’re there.

Danny Gokey 009It’s been a long time since I sat in the audience of a Danny Gokey concert – I hope he gets back to this area sometime soon. I would definitely be part of that audience again.

I hope you all had a good weekend. Now, it time to get some sleep before heading back to the office in the morning. I owe a lot of you an e-mail, and I am planning on getting many of those answered Monday evening – so please be patient with me. You are all super!

Later,
