Will Danny Gokey Go Dancing with the Stars?

by at . Comments

This past season, Dancing with the Stars took on a contestant that had been scorned by another reality show. And it worked out pretty well for Melissa Rycroft.

Might Danny Gokey be the next to follow this path?

The third-place finisher on American Idol says his immediate goal is to raise awareness and money for Sophia's Heart Foundation, a charity in memory of his wife, who died last summer after surgery for a congenital heart defect.

But the singer told The Chicago Tribune that he'd become a contestant on the ABC competition if it helped that cause gain exposure.

"I don't know if that will fall into line with the vision of where I am going right now," he said. "I think it's very important not to be sidetracked with anything else but to accomplish this one thing and maybe try a few things later."
