Gokey was chosen by America this past Wednesday (Feb. 18) to be a Top 12 Idol finalist and hopes people dont get sick of him or his sad story just yet.
His wife died about seven months ago, making him a widower at just 28 years old.
Gokey hopes viewers dont feel like hes milking his sob story, but wants fans to know that the tragedy is still so fresh, he cant stop talking about it.
He explains, Its only been seven months since my wife passed, so this is who I am right now. I dont want to shove it down peoples throats though.
In the future, Gokey promises to loosen up so Idol audiences can see that he also has a fun side.
Idol airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays on FOX.
