'American Idol's' Danny Gokey Marries for Second Time
The season 8 finalist said "I Do" to model Leyicet Peralta in Florida on Sunday.
American Idol alum Danny Gokey got married for the second time on Sunday, Jan. 29, People Magazine reports.
The season 8 finalist said "I do" in Florida to 25-year-old model Leyicet Peralta in what's described as "a low-key affair" with about 100 guests. The couple's chosen theme was "romance and love."
They announced their engagement in December 2011.
It's Gokey's second marriage. Idol fans may recall that the former church choir director-turned-country singer lost his wife Sophia in 2008 to complications resulting from heart surgery. In her memory, Gokey established a children's charity called Sophia's Heart. The couple asked that wedding guests give gifts in the form of a donation.
