Fantasia picks Danny Gokey to win 'American Idol'

Being an "American Idol" winner herself, Fantasia knows one when she hears one.

Fantasia says she's been voting for Gokey, the 28-year-old from Milwaukee, whose wife Sophia died of a congenital heart defect only seven months he made the final 13.

Fantasia says she loves singers who can "take a song that's not theirs, but make it their own." And Gokey moves her every time she hears him sing.

A winner in 2004, she votes regularly and says she gets upset if her favorite doesn't make it.
