I Will Not Say Goodbye

Every year, in the itty bitty town I live in, there is a "festival" that brings in musicians.  Sometimes they are local or just starting out but sometimes they bring in great well known bands!! Last year it I got to see Zac Brown Band who was a lot of fun. However, this year they brought in Danny Gokey! {Be still my heart!}

I've followed Danny since he audition on American Idol. I remember getting chills when he sang that first time for the judges and making the statement that I knew he would go far. His story choked me up and despite his hardship, he stood strong, he held his head high and he was true to who he is. Even now while he is in the spotlight he hasn't lost what is important. He's true and he's real and such an inspiration and I adore him for that. Someday, I will meet him and give him a big hug. :)

I Will Not Say Goodbye is one of my favourite songs and he performed it last night. It gives me the chills every time. I can relate in so many ways....

Much Love!!!


  1. OH MY GOSH, Karrielyne!! I have been watching him since day 1 on Idol too and he is one of my favs. Thanks for posting this!! I have to go get a kleenex....

  3. Good for you Danny! I wanted him to go all the way in Idol he was my favorite but I knew we would hear him again. Glad he is doing this, most likely for his wifes memory, thats great....."army guys come to the door daddy isnt comming home" Whaaaaaaaaaaaa (thats me crying by the way) hehe Im done now :)

  4. No, I don't live under a rock, but I haven't heard this song nor seen the video. Thanks so much for sharing. I lost both my parents in the last three father on my birthday. Miss them every single day. My mother gave me my love of sewing. Brought a tear to my eye....just beautiful. Thank you.

  5. I was a huge Gokey fan when he was on Idol but I hadn't heard what he was doing since. Thanks for sharing this. It's beautiful.
