If you’re curious to hear what the genre “Gospel soul-pop” sounds like, then you’ll have to head to Danny Gokey’s Tampa show at Bell Shoals Baptist Church on March 27. That’s right folks—”American Idol” at a church.

Gokey rose to fame in 2009 for his stint on the hit Fox reality talent competition, but has then since transformed into a chart-topping country-gospel singer who’s released multiple albums, including 2014’s Hope in Front of Me, which houses his most popular single “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again.”

Tickets to see Danny Gokey and opener Coby James play Bell Shoals Baptist Church in Tampa, Florida on March 27 are on sale now and start at just under $15.
