Danny Gokey Wants to Go 'Dancing with the Stars'


Danny Gokey Wants to Go 'Dancing with the Stars'
Stepping out of 'American Idol', Danny Gokey would like to try on another reality show if it means an awareness to his foundation.


Criticized for his lack of stage presence, Danny Gokey wants to prove to the world that he indeed could conquer the stage. The second runner-up of "American Idol" this season has mentioned he would like to try on "Dancing with the Stars" after being told by the judges of the talent show that his movement is awkward.

The 29-year-old said he is willing to try on reality show if it would increase people's awareness of Sophia's Heart Foundation, a charity established in honor of his late wife who died after surgery of congenital heart disease. "I don't know if that will fall into line with the vision of where I am going right now," he said. "I think it's very important not to be sidetracked with anything else but to accomplish this one thing and maybe try a few things later."

In tow with the intention that he uttered on Tuesday, May 26, Gokey said that he has another priority in mind, making an album. In fact, he has signed a contract with 19Entertainment and wished his album to be in stores before "Idol" begins the ninth season. "I don't want to ever be recognized as just an entertainer, singer or just ... the president of Sophia's Heart Foundation," he said. "I see a future where music is the message and the foundation is the action behind the message. Music is the talk, the foundation is the walk."

Just recently, Howard Benson who produced albums for Kelly Clarkson and DAUGHTRY, said that it is "very tough to make a record with him" because he "dresses like some guy that's in a bar somewhere". However, Howard also said that Danny's voice is great and soulful.

Along with the rest of the top 10, Danny Gokey will hit the road in the annual "American Idol" tour starting this July. The jaunt will wind down in September.
