Wholehearted by We Are Messengers

| |

The riveting signature anthems of We are Messengers are on full display with the band’s third full-length album, “Wholehearted.” The band, originally from Ireland and now based in the U.S., knows how to create and perform compelling pop music. The music is spirited, and the words point to God. Themes include trust, hope, surrender, and praise. “We gave ourselves fully to the process of telling the truth again and not caring what the world thought of us,” lead vocalist Dan Mulligan said in a release. “The 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.” “Come What May,” a radio single, captures the surrendered Christian life. It says in part: “In every high, in every low; On mountaintops, down broken roads; You’re still my rock, my hope remains; I’ll rest in the arms of Jesus; Come what may; Come what may.” Another strong selection, “Keep the Faith,” centers on Christian devotion in difficult times.
