KTSY/Boise “Heartbeat of Hope” was the most successful fundraiser for a local ministry in recent history. Pregnancy Care Centers in four different cities chose to take part, allowing funds to be raised from all over the listening area and then disbursed to the Center where the donation came from. Boise, Nampa, McCall, and Twin Falls all were impacted by the giving of the KTSY family. 150 ultrasounds are now available, which will help more families get the information they need to choose life for their child.

Word Curb artists & Dove Award-nominated We Are Messengers, who has amassed over 187 million on-demand streams and played to over 2 million people worldwide, is back with the brand-new album, Wholehearted, which features current radio single “Come What May.” Listen to the unreleased project HERE.

Lead singer Darren Mulligan shares, “Like most artists, our world kinda fell apart when touring got shut down. So we did what every good songwriter should do, we catalogued every feeing imaginable and tried to make sense of a strange new world. We danced in the darkness, wrestled with doubt, reconnected with God in a really authentic way, and found the beauty in the forced simplicity of our lives. We gave ourselves fully to the process of telling the truth again and not caring about what the world thought of us. This album captures the heart of a follower of Jesus in one of the most wonderful and horrific times we have faced in modern history. We went all in, held nothing back. This one is Wholehearted.”
