American country music singer and church music director, Danny Gokey , who just about three years ago lost his wife, and the former ‘American Idol; contestant, is so happy to announce that he is engaged to marry his girlfriend Leyicet Peralta.
The wonderful news was indeed announced on the website of the charity Sophia’s Heart, which honors the memory of his late wife, Sophia.
This is what the site does say, the singer who is now thirty one has recently expresses to friends and family that the two do plan to wed, and they hoping it will be next month.
”He is thrilled to have found Leyicet who also shares his passion and desire to help children and families in need,” says a message on the site. “Accordingly, Danny & Leyicet have requested to their wedding guests that all gifts be in the form of a donation to Sophia’s Heart.”
The couple also issued a statement, saying,
”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.”
Gokey who is from Milwaukee, was a season eight Idol finalist and has a famously tragic back story that includes the 2008 loss of his young wife after a routine heart surgery. Still, last year he was able to tell PEOPLE,
”I feel very lucky [when it comes to] the progression I’ve made in the last year and a half.”
