A freak accident has left Danny Gokey with some pretty severe burns. As he was steaming his shirt in preparation for a concert in Richmond, Virginia last weekend, the water from the steamer’s reservoir tipped over and sprayed onto both of his feet leaving him with 2nd degree burns on one foot and 3rd degree burns on the other. The show did, however, go on. Danny performed the concert from a chair with bandaged feet.
