American Idol Season 8 Top 36 contestants revealed

Danny Gokey, 28 from Wisconsin, is one of the rumored Top 36 contestants of American Idol Season 8 (See list below).

What makes Gokey an extra special American Idol hopeful?

Other than his great musicality, Gokey has a heartwarming story to back him up: Danny's wife died a month before his American Idol audition.
