Danny Gokey Is Engaged

Danny Gokey
Sophia's Heart

Congratulations, Danny Gokey! During a recent interview with FOX News — on which the ‘American Idol’ alum appeared to discuss his charity efforts through his organization Sophia’s Heart — Gokey was overjoyed while talking about his engagement to girlfriend Leyicet Peralta.

Just like her husband-to-be, Peralta is dedicated to helping individuals and families in need. In lieu of silverware, kitchenware, and other gifts that you’d normally see at a wedding, Peralta told her husband she wanted guests to gift them with a charitable donation to Sophia’s Heart.

“It was the most beautiful thing. [Leyicet] came up to me after we got engaged and took me aside and said, ‘I don’t want any gifts for my wedding.’ I said, ‘Really?’ and my ears kind of perked up,” Gokey said on FOX News. “I want on the invitation for [our guests] to give towards the organization in honor of us.”

Gokey continued, “It’s her desire too to see homeless families being helped and for kids who don’t have a lot of opportunities to be given the opportunity. My heart was touched when she did that because you have to have someone strong with you and in partnership with you to make an organization like this flourish.”

The couple posted a message about their engagement on the official website for Gokey’s charity, Sophia’s Heart, which helps struggling people in honor of Gokey’s late wife. “We are thankful for so many of the blessings God has given us,” the happy couple wrote. “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.”

The couple plan to marry in January 2012. Congratulations again to Danny Gokey on his engagement!
