It has been a privilege to participate as a Board member and volunteer for Sophia's Heart. To see how the organization has grown over the past two years is amazing and heart warming. The "light" in the children's eyes as they perform their hearts out is inspirational. The vision and future of the organization is bright and one that will influence generations of children to come providing them with hope, joy and talent.
Sophia's Heart continues to help those in need with the resources God provides for Sophia's Heart through the friends and donors of Sophia's Heart. Sophia's Heat is currently hosting performing arts classes for 38 middle and high school students in Milwaukee and housing single mothers and families in Nashville. It is a privilege to watch Danny Gokey and his professional volunteers and staff face the challenges that come before them in their efforts to honor Sophia, Danny's first wife. Sophia passed away shortly before Danny entered the American Idol contest during Season 8. He did this at the urging of his family and friends to continue this quest that he and Sophia began. Danny refused to use insurance proceeds he received from Sophia's death for anything other than creating a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation named Sophia's Heart.
