Former American Idol star Danny Gokey is once again a married man.  The singer exchanged vows with his fiancee, Leyicet Peralta, in a small ceremony among 100 of their family and closest friends, Gokey’s manager confirmed to People.  The intimate ceremony celebrated the theme of “romance and love” and took place in Florida on Sunday.  “We are so thankful to have found each other and now be able to spend the rest of our lives together,” the newlyweds said in a statement.  “We pray our gratitude grows more every day because there is so much for us to do now.”  This is the second marriage for Gokey, who lost his first wife Sophia in 2008 after undergoing a routine surgery for congenital heart disease.  The newlyweds paid tribute to Sophia by asking their guests that all gifts be in the form of donation to Sophia’s Heart, the children’s charity founded by Gokey to honor his late wife.
