The Cost of Being on 'American Idol'

http://www.foxbusiness.com/personal-financ.../#ixzz1ogK8brQr

Housing 20 Gokeys Can get Pricey

Once chosen for the top 12, Idol contestants are provided room and board, although the accommodations have varied widely from season to season.

"There have been years where they want to show it on the air so they put them up in mansions in the Hollywood hills; other years, they've put them up in this apartment complex that's not seen on the air," says Rushfield. "It's nothing fancy, but it's not squalor. They have roommates all the way through, and when their roommates get cut, they consolidate them to save on the rooms."

A far bigger expense falls to the contestants' families. "They don't provide travel or expenses for families," he says. "That's the expense that causes the most trouble for Idols and their families."

To ease the pain, an Orange County minister and his wife extended their ministry and their home to the families of Jason Castro, Kristy Lee Cook, Syesha Mercado, Danny Gokey and many others. The ministry itself became an unofficial part of the extended Idol family.

"Danny Gokey had some huge number of brothers and sisters," says Rushfield. "There were like 20 Gokey family members living there."

Gokey to launch new eyewear line

http://www.jsonline.com/business/gokey-to-...-142912115.html

Recording artist Danny Gokey, the Milwaukee man who became a finalist on "American Idol," will go to New York next week to launch his new line of eyewear.

Gokey has a relationship with Wisconsin Vision, the state's largest independently owned optical company. Gokey and Match Eyewear will launch the new Danny Gokey Eyewear Collection at New York's International Vision Expo East.

"It's always been a dream of Danny's to create his own brand of fashion frames and he has learned so much about the optical industry during our partnership the past two years, so it was a natural for us to help make this happen for him," said Darren Horndasch, president and CEO of Wisconsin Vision.

Horndasch first introduced Gokey to executives from Match Eyewear in 2010 and has been advising both. Headquartered in New York, Match distributes its brands both nationally and internationally.

"We are excited to establish a partnership with Danny," said Ethan Goodman, president of Match Eyewear. "We're grateful to Wisconsin Vision for their work in making this relationship happen. It has been fun developing this collection with Danny and it's refreshing to work with an artist with so much passion for eyewear."

Horndasch also announced that Wisconsin Vision has renewed its marketing relationship with Gokey for another year. Gokey has been featured in Wisconsin Vision's marketing campaigns since March 2010.

'American Idol's' Danny Gokey Launches Eyewear Collection

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/idol-wors...launches-304266

The Season 8 finalist promoted his new line of fashionable frames in New York on March 24.

Randy Jackson isn’t the only person who has sported some hip glasses on American Idol. Danny Gokey stood out as an Idol finalist for his voice, and his style.

Now the Season Eight third-place finisher, launched his own eyewear line at the Vision Expo on Sat. March 24.

“It’s an edgier collection,” Match Eyewear president Ethan Goodman told The Examiner about the company’s launch of the Danny Gokey Eyewear Collection in Long Island.

“I wouldn’t call it ‘rocker’, but Danny’s image is youthful and up-to-date,” Goodman said of the 2009 Idol alum.

The collection targets men ages 18 to 35 in twelve initial styles. Gokey brings his passion for eyewear to creating the line, fulfilling a longtime dream of creating his own brand of fashionable frames.

His eyewear collection was revealed at the three-day International Vision Expo East eyecare trade show held at the Javits Center in New York.

Match Eyewear, the fashion eyewear supplier, has developed a two-year marketing relationship with Gokey through the Milwaukee-based Wisconsin Vision regional retail chain.

Gokey, a Milwaukee-native, became knowledgeable about the optical industry during this time.

He also runs Sophia’s Heart Organization, named after his first wife, who died after complications from heart surgery a month before his American Idol audition. (He married for a second time on Jan. 29, 2012). The organization helps children and families in need.
Gokey appeared at the Match Eyewear booth to sign autographs and take pictures. He will continue to promote his line at the Vision Expo West in Las Vegas in September.

Talking music, love and glasses with Danny Gokey

http://onmilwaukee.com/market/articles/dan...hats.html?30429

In the summer of 2008, Danny Gokey, who was then worship director for a Milwaukee-based church, auditioned for "American Idol" just one month after his wife, Sophia, unexpectedly died during a routine heart surgery.

Gokey made it to the Top 3 round in "Idol's" eight season, but was eliminated after his performance of Joe Cocker's "You Are So Beautiful." He went on to tour with American Idol Live in 2009 and released "My Best Days" on RCA Nashville in 2010.

While on "Idol," Gokey was known for wearing glasses, and later became the spokesperson for Wisconsin Vision. Earlier this year, he unveiled a new collection of unisex glasses called the Danny Gokey Eyewear Collection.

Gokey remarried in January and now lives with his wife in Nashville.

"She looks great in glasses," he says.

Gokey stopped by the OnMilwaukee.com offices this morning and we had the chance to chat about his new record, his new wife and his new line of glasses.

OnMilwaukee.com: What's going on with your record?

Danny Gokey: I just signed with new management and I am doing a lot of writing right now. Expect a full-length album out in early 2013. We're in the process of negotiating labels and trying to find the best place for me. There are a lot of opportunities.

OMC: How would you describe the future album? What genres and messages will it include?

DG: It will again cross genres: country, Christian, rock. My messages always revolve around love, inspiration, church and real issues like heartbreak.

OMC: Which bands / musicians are inspiring you these days?

DG: It's hard to say. There are so many: Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, Motown.

OMC: So when did you get remarried? And tell us a little bit about your new wife.

DG: My wife's name is Leyicet Peralta. We had a very intimate wedding in Miami on Jan. 29. She is a model and a broadcast journalism student.

OMC: Do you want to have kids?

DG: Yes.

OMC: Soon?

DG: Maybe (smiling).

OMC: How did you meet?

DG: Through a mutual friend.

OMC: When you met Leyicet did you feel like you had made it through the grieving process or did she help you through it?

DG: I think I had grieved already in a healthy way. I was grieving while being broadcast all over the world. It was good, actually, because it gave me something to live for.

OMC: I read that you and Leyicet asked your wedding guests to donate to the charity you set up for your late wife, called Sophia's Heart, instead of gifts.

DG: Yes, we did.

OMC: So tell me about your new line of glasses ...

DG: I always dreamed of getting my own line of glasses. I've been working with Wisconsin Vision and Match Eyewear on the The Danny Gokey Collection. There are 13 styles in three or four different colors each. Four more styles are coming out this fall, and some sunglasses. They're "geek chic" but go beyond that, too.

OMC: Do you personally have all of the styles in all of the colors?

DG: Yes.

OMC: How do you decide which pair to wear every morning?

DG: It's tough. (Laughs) But there's a pair that goes with everything.

This is all very exciting news! I can't wait to hear his new album. I'm glad he's doing different genres. He's so versatile and can do almost any genre. I'm glad he's not limiting himself to country.
