American Idol: Danny Gokey is Getting Married Next Month!

It’s happy news for the ever so sweet American Idol alum, Danny Gokey.  If you missed his season (8), then you won’t remember that he lost his beautiful wife, Sophia when she had a routine heart operation.  It was a tragic loss and he melted our hearts with his story and beautiful voice.

Danny is now getting ready to re-marry!  He and his girlfriend, Leyicet Peralta are going to take the plunge next month!

They shared the happy news on Danny’s site that honors his late wife and the amazing charity that has come from it.

“We are thankful for so many of the blessings God has given us.  It is our desire to see homeless children and families be kept together and lifted back on their feet through the help of Sophia’s Heart. We love and appreciate you all.”

They are asking their guests to make all of their gifts, donations to Sophia’s Heart.  It is a true testament to their cause and Danny’s love for his late wife.

Congrats to the happy couple!
