ABOUT DANNY GOKEY: Three-time GRAMMY® Nominee, three-time KLOVE Male Vocalist of the Year, Dove Award winner, and eight-time Dove Award Nominee, Danny Gokey became a favorite of millions of fans as a Top 3 finalist on Season Eight of American Idol. Following Idol, Gokey dropped his first album, My Best Days, and has since celebrated a series of No. 1s including his follow-up releases Hope In Front of Me, Rise, Haven’t Seen It Yet, Jesus People, and holiday albums, Christmas Is Here and The Greatest Gift. Spawning singles like, “We All Need Jesus”  “Rise,” “The Comeback,” “Love God Love People,” and RIAA Gold-certified “Hope In Front of Me”, “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” and “Haven’t Seen It Yet,” Danny Gokey has cemented his place on the radio charts with multi-week, multi-chart-topping runs in the United States, Canada, and now Latin markets with the releases of Spanish singles and collaborations. The desire to make a broader impact with his message of hope led to the founding of the nonprofit organization Better Than I Found It, which is doing community giveback 'Bus Stops' during his touring initiatives. He and his wife Leyiet also launched Livin’ la Vida Gokey, a podcast featuring conversations about faith and family. They currently live outside Nashville, TN with their four beautiful children, Daniel, Victoria, Gabriel, and Emanuel.

ABOUT AUSTIN FRENCH: Growing up in small-town Georgia, young Austin French dreamed of writing songs as a means to share his faith and passion for Jesus. Being surrounded by a musical family gave him the opportunity to grow towards that goal. As he began to develop his gifts, Austin began touring while in high school, taking his music to stages, churches, and anyone who would listen. At the age of eighteen, Austin began leading at Journey Church in Tifton, Georgia, and eventually became their full-time worship pastor. In 2014, Austin French was featured on the ABC TV show Rising Star, where he won the hearts of millions of viewers – including guest judges Ludacris, Ke$ha, and Brad Paisley. Austin French competed his way to the finale, finished as the runner-up on the show, and had the opportunity to share the stage with multi-platinum recording artist, Josh Groban. Austin's hit singles include “Wake-Up Sleeper," "Freedom Hymn," "Born Again," & "Why God.”

ABOUT NATALIE LAYNE: Singer, songwriter, and producer Natalie Layne desire to radiate joy through her original music. With a master’s in commercial piano, Layne won Belmont’s Christian Showcase at her alma mater in 2019, leading her to sign an exclusive recording and publishing contract with Centricity Music. Prior to landing a record deal, Layne charted a successful path as an independent artist for six years during which she cultivated an impressive social following simply by inviting listeners into her songwriting process online. Moreover, she studied under GRAMMY® award-winning songwriter and producer Bernie Herms (Natalie Grant, Josh Groban, Barbra Streisand) through an apprenticeship that allowed her to shadow him for a semester. She’s sung background vocals for Natalie Grant on the Dove Awards stage and also lent BGVs to labelmate Jason Gray’s upcoming album. Additionally, she’s opened shows for Jeremy Camp, Chris Tomlin and We The Kingdom, among others, as well as headlined full band sets at Bonnaroo — twice. Leading worship since she was 12 under the mentorship of respected worship pastors such as Cory Asbury, Jon Egan and Jared Anderson, the Colorado Springs native now resides in Nashville where she continues to lead worship at her local church. Her introductory EP, Amen, builds on her growing momentum, serving up six original songs — all co-penned by Layne.
