Anyone who knows me knows I am a HUGE American Idol fan. I try to watch every single episode and every season I have a favorite... mine this year, is Danny Gokey. And tonight, he got cut.... WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAAAHAAAHAAA
I don't usually use my blog for anything by my cards, but I just had to vent tonight (I apologize to Adam and Chris fans)... I LOVE Danny's voice and have downloaded eleven of his songs off iTunes. I have also downloaded eleven of Chris's and four of Adam's. But I'd have to say, I favor Danny because I like the songs he sings the most, and his natural tone is a dream to listen to. I just love his version of "Jesus Take The Wheel" and "You Are So Beautiful". Wow. Awesome sounds.
Don't get me wrong, I think Adam and Chris are also very talented, to the extreme, but Danny was my personal favorite. That voice, my goodness, he could sing with such control, perfect pitch, he could sing deep, he could sing falsetto, he could sing softly, he could belt it out, do flawless runs, put a raspy growl in the right places, he is amazing. As far as singers go, Danny is what you would call, a singer's singer. He could wow anybody with his vocal ability, and as Simon Cowell put it lastnight, his singing is "master-class". That says it all.
I am pretty upset that he was cut. I was so looking forward to seeing him in the final, and hoping he would win. I must console myself with the fact that now he will have a chance to take the world by storm with his music as he springboards from American Idol onto the stage in the real world. I think he is going to do great. I am just disappointed that I don't get to hear him sing in the finale next week. :-(
I am being very dramatic, I know. But honestly, in my core, I believe God has great things in store for Danny, and I'm not at all concerned about where he is headed. I just wanted to hear that boy SING!!!
