UNDATED (WSAU) About 100 friends and relatives looked on yesterday, as Milwaukee singer Danny Gokey married model Leyicet Peralta in Florida.
Gokey finished third in the 2009 "American Idol" competition. The couple announced their engagement on Christmas Day. They told People Magazine they're so thankful to have found each other -- and they pray that their gratitude grows more every day.
Gokey's first wife Sophia died in 2008 after having surgery for congenital heart disease. Gokey and his new bride asked that their gifts be in the form of donations to "Sophia's Heart." It's a children's charity started by Gokey to honor his late wife.
