Congratulations to Danny Gokey, who announced his engagement to girlfriend, Leyicet Peralta, on the website of his charity, Sophia’s Heart Foundation. The American Idol alum tragically lost his wife, Sophia, three year ago and started the charity in her honor.
Danny announced his engagement recently to family and friends. The website reports the couple is planning a wedding for late January, 2012.
Danny & Leyicet have requested to their wedding guests that all gifts be in the form of a donation to Sophia’s Heart.
In other Danny Gokey news, he recently returned to truck driving for our new series, Day Jobs. See if he can still park a big rig today at 4 p.m. Eastern — and watch a sneak peek HERE.
