"Everything changed after one phone call," Boye said. "Last year, I received a call from President Ballard to accompany him on a speaking assignment. He asked specifically that I would sing 'There Is a Green Hill Far Away,' 'I Need Thee Every Hour' and 'I Walked Today Where Jesus Walked.' It was a privilege and a great honor to sing those songs. The next day, I rushed to the studio and recorded those three songs as a memento and memory of the great significance of what I had been a part of, and just realized I had completed the album! Once it was completed, I remember saying to myself, 'Now what?'"
It wasn't long before the answer came. After returning from a sold-out Midwest tour with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Boye received a phone call from Bob Ahlander, the general manager at Deseret Book. Ahlander asked him if he'd be interested in recording a hymns album.
"I was floored. 'That's funny you should say that Bob, because I just finished doing one,'" said Boye.
Boye's album, "Be Still, My Soul: Classic Hymns and Folk Songs" has been on the top 10 bestsellers list at Deseret Book for four weeks.
He is using his God-given gifts to bless the lives of many. Boye is raising money to buy a house for a local refugee family with sales of his single, "Crazy for You." He is also working on a book for the youth that focuses on how music affects our thoughts, personality and character, called "Prophets and Popstars."
