Danny Gokey Teams Up With Clorox To Fight Flu

19/RCA/NASHVILLE artist DANNY GOKEY and THE CLOROX COMPANY have teamed up to launch "I Don't Want To Miss..," a national contest designed to get teens and teachers involved in flu prevention. The contest calls for teachers and teens to submit videos of songs they have written focused on the ways the flu can take a teen away from the big moments in high school.
For each entry submitted, THE CLOROX COMPANY will donate $100, up to $10,000, to the SOPHIA'S HEART FOUNDATION. The charity was founded by GOKEY in honor of his late wife, SOPHIA and is dedicated to helping children achieve academic success via musical training and restoring musical dreams in children.
GOKEY said: "From play practice to homework to the 'big game,' I know teens can't afford to miss a beat. I couldn't imagine missing out on key moments like 'American Idol' because of the flu like some of my fellow competitors, or not having the opportunity to pursue my love of music. That's why I'm excited about helping give others the chance to study music and achieve their goals by participating in this important flu prevention campaign."
A judges' panel will select five finalists, and the winner will be picked through an online vote for the favorite video. The group that submits the winning video will receive a music class led by GOKEY at their school. For the first 100 groups to submit, the teacher will receive a CLOROX care package.
