Danny Gokey announced today the “Danny & Friends Virtual Experience” Radio Partner Program. CCM artist Danny Gokey is gathering some of his friends for a series of four events over two-nights in November that will be more than just a performance but a full virtual experience. Danny and his band will be joined by Natalie Grant, Mandisa, Evan Craft, David Archuleta, Lilly Goodman and Redimi2 to encourage and bring hope right into the living rooms of fans across the country. The events are scheduled for November 14th and 21st with two events each night at 7:00PM (EST) and 7:00PM (PST). Fresh off three successful virtual experience events in September, Danny realized how much people need hope in these times and how events like this can have a powerful impact across families, communities, and the country. These all-new events feature some of his favorite duet partners along with his full band and the ability to interact live with viewers throughout the night. Danny is also providing an opportunity for radio stations around the country to become part of these nights.
“I miss being out on the road, doing concerts and visiting all the great radio stations that have been supporting my music for so many years. So, I wanted to find a way for them to be part of the events and give back something for all they have done,” shares Danny. To that end, radio stations can sign up to become affiliate partners for the events. Partners will receive a portion of every ticket they sell. “This time has been financially difficult for everyone,” says Gokey. “If we can help our radio friends, even in a small way, I wanted to do it!” If your station is interested in partnering with Danny, you can get more information by sending an email request to Danny’s management at: [email protected].
