Season 8 American Idol alum and country singer, Danny Gokey, has announced his engagement to girlfriend, Leyicet Peralta. The couple shared the news on sophiasheart.org, a foundation Gokey created in honor of his late wife in order to help children and families touched by poverty, sickness, broken homes, and other hardships.
The couple shared:
“We are thankful for so many of the blessings God has given us. It is our desire to see homeless children and families be kept together and lifted back on their feet through the help of Sophia’s Heart. We love and appreciate you all.”

The couple is planning a wedding for late January 2012, and has requested that all wedding gifts be in the form of donations to Sophia’s Heart Foundation. If you would like to make a donation, please click here.
