New beginnings: Daniel Gokey 22.1.24

Daniel Jay Gokey (born April 24, 1980) is an American singer and former church music director. He was a performer in American Idol. 


Gokey started singing with his family in church, but wanted to perform more mainstream music rather than just perform Christian and gospel music. He believes that music has the power of music to provide purpose and direction, especially in the most trying times.


Here he sings an inspirational song about a new day and how you have the freedom to start again. If you are trying to do the school challenge of 'turning over a new leaf' and are finding it difficult, remember that today is a new day and you can try again. 


This is a new day 
Everything bursting with hope 
Coming alive this moment, moment 
You've got a freedom (woo) 
No looking back anymore 
Open your eyes it's coming, coming 
This is a new day
