Following his time on American Idol, Danny Gokey first made a splash in country music touring alongside Sugarland and Taylor Swift, though he soon switched gears to formally pursue Christian music. Now two standard studio albums fully immersed into that territory, Rise (buy) takes on a decidedly hopeful tone that addresses his transition from the pain surrounding his first wife’s premature passing to the renewal that came from remarrying and joyfully embracing fatherhood. Throughout the emotional journey, Gokey angles his rich voice even more towards the soulful side as he delivers several rhythmic romps and booming ballads meant to meet listeners wherever they’re at, but destined to uplift absolutely everyone along the way.
