For award-winning artist Danny Gokey, the purpose and goal of his career is crystal clear.

“My music is part of the Great Commission: ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation,’” he told The Christian Post. “It’s a goal I continually work toward. With each new record, I’ve tried to reach out to the churched and unchurched. I really try to do that with my music and get the Gospel message out in a way that’s fresh.”

As the third-place finalist on the eighth season of "American Idol" in 2009, Gokey has seen tremendous success: He has several chart-topping albums, has been nominated for a Grammy, won a Dove Award, and this year took home "Male Artist of the Year" at the seventh annual K-LOVE Fan Awards. In June, his album Haven't Seen It Yet hit No. 1 on the Billboard's Christian Airplay chart.
