Danny Gokey - I Will Not Say Goodbye Acoustic Video

I discovered this video of Danny Gokey, hidden on AOL Music. It's a an acoustic, piano-only version of his new single "I Will Not Say Goodbye". It's a pretty song, and Danny's voice is just soaked in emotion on it. I haven't really heard the original much, but I definitely prefer it stripped down like this with just piano. It totally enhances the song and its lyrics.

Check it out here:

ETA: Oops, looks like that was supposed to be an exclusive video for his website. LOL sorry! Here's a link to that video: "I Will Not Say Goodbye (Ocean Way Acoustic Session)"

I have listened to this song too many times to count and it always moves me...but this video brought me to tears again. The emotion Danny brings is palpable, and the simplicity of the acoustic version accentuates the power of his vocals. How rare that a song can leave you feeling so emotionally spent you want to listen more! Thank you for sharing this with us!!

The first time i heard this song it made me cry a bit-since then i've listened to the song both on my CD of "My Best Days" and in live performances and it still would tug at my heart strings. This video-this performance literally made me WEEP. I'm still crying as i type this. I can't explain how strong the emotion i'm feeling right now is. I know what it's like. There are many that do..that can relate to the context and raw emotion that Danny exudes in this video. I'm going to close now- i've nothing more i can say but this..Danny, I hold you in such high regard in my heart, and i always will. I admire your strength but more importantly your courage to express your feelings when you're so obviously hurting. My prayers for you Danny. God bless.
