Danny Gokey, born Daniel Jay Gokey, is a Christian singer from Wisconsin. He was on the show "American Idol" on the 8th season and placed 3rd. Gokey is an accomplished singer, songwriter, and he even authored a book. He has been through many trials in his life including his wife Sophia passing away right before his audition for "American Idol." In his book, he talked about how hard it was to continue with the show even after her passing but he wanted to honor her memory since she is the one who encouraged him to even try out. Gokey is known for the songs "Tell Your Heart to Beat Again", "Hope In Front of Me", "More Than You Think I Am", and many more. He has been on many tours including TobyMac's Hits Deep Tour and now as of this year, Winter Jam. His latest single, "Haven't Seen It Yet" released just days before the start of Winter Jam, so naturally, he performs it at each show. This song has a beautiful, driving melody with passionate vocals from a God-fearing performer. The first part of the song says the following "Have you been praying and you still have no answers? Have you been pouring out your heart for so many years? Have you been hoping that things would have changed by now? Have you cried all the faith you have through so many tears? Don't forget the things that He has done before, and remember He can do it all once more." That first verse is full of meaning and I just want to take a minute to unpack what I think that Gokey is trying to convey. He starts out asking all the listeners a few questions. He is asking if anyone has felt like their prayers have gone unanswered or if our hope had started to fade. But then he goes on to say that we shouldn't forget everything that our Father has done for us and that He can do everything that he has done before. Sometimes the answers we want are there but they are not what we want to hear so we don't see them. The title of the song says Haven't Seen It Yet and sometimes we just need patience and the wisdom to pray and wait on God's timing. In his timing and plan we will know what He wants us to know but sometimes at the moment we just haven't seen it yet. Check out the new song from hit Christian performer Danny Gokey.
