This Featured Friday, the Sensai team is excited to profile our customer Danny Gokey — a past contestant and finalist on American Idol.

Gokey — a  former church music director from Milwaukee — rose to fame when he appeared on season eight of American Idol and placed third in the singing competition. Today, he is a popular Christian/pop music artist, which is a natural fit for Gokey who grew up singing in the church with his family.

He has a loyal following of nearly 800,000 fans across his social channels and Gokey uses social media to inspire his audience daily with strong messages of hope, faith, and family. He also uses the platforms to promote his faith-based music and his upcoming tour. In fact, Gokey is on his first headline tour right now, which will stop in 29 cities around the United States.

Gokey uses Sensai to discover trending topics and actionable recommendations. He also receives personalized feedback on his posts, like this one:
