Danny Gokey Partners with Convoy in “New Day” Video

Reported by Convoy of Hope

“This is a new day! Everything’s bursting with hope, coming alive this moment.”

Those are the lyrics to musician Danny Gokey’s most recent song, “New Day.” And when Gokey needed a semi-truck to deliver that hope in his new music video, he turned to Convoy of Hope, knowing we represent more than just a truck.

“In talking with our friends, Convoy of Hope, they really resonated with the message of this song and how it embodies the work they do. They are able, through their efforts, to provide a new start to many who are hurting on so many levels,” said Danny Gokey. “The video was a great way to integrate both of our messages and share it. It was a perfect partnership!”

Since his days as a finalist on American Idol, Gokey has been producing hits that you’ve likely heard on the radio. Years ago, when Gokey met Hal Donaldson, President of Convoy of Hope, a friendship geared toward serving others was made.

“I’ve been looking forward to releasing this song at the top of 2021 to remind people that in spite of all we have been through over the past year, God’s plan is still full of new mercies and our futures are still bursting with hope!” Gokey said. “As believers, we don’t have to be subject to our circumstances, we can choose to receive His hope on a daily basis and walk into a ‘New Day’!”
