Behind the Song “Rise”



Danny Gokey is starting off the year with a bang! His new album, Rise, comes out everywhere on January 13th.

His previous album, powerful songs like “Tell Your heart to Beat Again” and “Hope in Front of Me,” came out of a time of great pain and loss for him.

With Rise, he uses his experience to show us the hope that God provides for us in our darkest moments.

Here’s the chorus from the title track, “Rise:”

So rise
Breaking the dark, piercing the night
You’re made to shine
An army of hope
Bringing the world
A radiant light
A radiant light
You were made to rise, rise


Danny Gokey and Casting Crowns are kicking off their nationwide tour in February. You can check out more details here.

The title track, “Rise,” can be heard on The River. You can also watch his brand new music video down below!
