Moving On: Danny Gokey explores life after American Idol

A truck driver cum-church musician turned widowed famed country singer turned community philanthropist in a nutshell, that's Milwaukee-native Danny Gokey's life story.

He rose to international notoriety with during season eight of American Idol, maneuvering through countless auditions and hundreds of thousands of hopefuls to earn a third spot behind Kris Allen and Adam Lambert.

Gokey's story touched everyone. Just four weeks before the show, he lost his wife and high school sweetheart Sophia during what should have been a routine surgery due to a congenital heart condition. Determined to fulfill their dreams, Gokey found the strength to express his pain through song, and at the suggestion of American Idol celebrity coach and industry superstar Randy Travis, he embarked on a successful country music career.

At Houston Galleria's 23rd Annual Tree Lighting and "Ice Spectacular" presented by Cadillac on Saturday, Gokey will be the headlining act.( 6 p.m. Saturday at the Galleria)

Gokey now lives in Nashville. Prior to his Houston visit, CultureMap spoke to the 31-year old singer by phone and learned about his hopes and aspirations.
