Returning home after leaving "American Idol" with just 2 weeks left, 2nd runner-up Danny Gokey belted out a few tunes using the new Sennheiser 2000 Series handheld wireless vocal microphone. The televised concert from his home town of Milwaukee, WI, demonstrated that Gokey still has a successful recording career ahead of him.

Brian "BK" Koerner, audio operations manager for Clearwing Productions, the Milwaukee-based company that supplied full production for Gokey’s show reports that nearly 26,000 fans were in attendance at the Harley-Davidson Roadhouse Stage at Henry Maier Festival Park (home of Summerfest) on the shore of Lake Michigan.

The performance, which included a full band, was part of "Danny Gokey Day," which took the "Idol" finalist on a daylong series of events that were filmed by FOX for a segment on the top three elimination episode that was broadcast on May 13th.

Speaking of the new mic, Koerner notes that the Clearwing Productions crew members at the event were very impressed with the features of the 2000 Series system, which includes a high level of frequency flexibility and multichannel capability, and provides professional control via Sennheiser’s Wireless Systems Manager software.

The Sennheiser 2000 Series mic, outfitted with an evolution series 935 capsule, was delivered by Sennheiser’s local area rep, Eric Reese, just in minutes before the start of the show."It looks great, it handles nicely, enthused Koerner, "Everything went well, and the mic sounded amazing."
