Danny Gokey


Danny Gokey was an American Idol finalist back in 2009.  Now he’s the voice that’s expected to draw 30,000 people to Rocklin’s Twin Oaks for Celebrate America.

This is Danny’s second time singing at the event, which is hosted by Destiny Christian Church.

He says it was faith that sustained him when his first wife died from heart surgery complications, a month before his American Idol audition.

Now the necklace he wears bears the logo of “Sophia’s Heart,” a multi-state organization Danny started in her name.

It helps kids, the homeless, and soon will be opening an office at Destiny Christian Church, and he’ll call Rocklin home.


Fireworks, American Idol finalist Danny Gokey and music. And best of all, it’s all free.

Rocklin’s “Celebrate America” is the place to be this coming weekend.  Twin Oaks Park will be transformed into a bounce house bonanza for the kids, and a musical experience for the adults.

“I think we’re hitting the sweet spot for the community,” says Pastor Greg Fairrington of Destiny Christian Church.

Celebrate America is put on by Rocklin’s Destiny Christian Church.

“I’m a boy raised in a church, so I gotta go back to the roots,” says Gokey.
