‘Idol’ hopeful in Milwaukee today

"American Idol" hopeful Danny Gokey is now in the top three. While I was not excited to see Allison Iraheta go Wednesday night, I was excited by the fact that the final three are visiting their hometowns today, Friday, May 8th.

The powerhouse singer that is Gokey is thankfully from Milwaukee and will be stopping by the "sexiest city in the world" for a quick visit — and my college town will be on TV next week! Sounds awesome to me... Plus, he giving a free concert!!!

Here is his schedule, thanks to my friend Rincey (subject to change):

7 a.m.: Danny arrives at the WITI Fox 6 studios for TV interviews, 9001 N. Green Bay Road, Brown Deer.

11:15 a.m.: Danny makes a visit to the AT&T store (9078 N. Green Bay Road).

Note: all people who attend Danny’s mini-concert at Summerfest will receive a FREE Summerfest weekday admission ticket as they depart the grounds after the concert!
