  • A Small Church Known as Hillsong

    Posted on February 4, 2014 by Family Christian


    In 1978, a small church was planted in Australia by newly married Brian and Bobbie Houston. Their humble beginnings were rooted by a Christ-centered vision- one that focused on stirring up authentic praise and worship. They believed sincere worship was so powerful, it could pull heaven to earth in a powerful display of hope and faith.

    Thirty years later, they became the mega-church plant known as Hillsong.

    Thriving in over ten countries across the globe, Hillsong has made world-changing strides in Christ-culture as well as praise and worship music. The Hillsong Creative team consists of hundreds of singers, musicians, songwriters, and production volunteers whose passion is creating and worshipping. Since 1988, they have recorded 18 live albums and several youth albums that are distributed worldwide.

    Their most recent project, Zion, was created by Hillsong United, a musical branch of the Hillsong Creative Team. This group consists of various collaborating artists whose common goal is to musically express the truth and life found in Jesus. The album, Zion introduces a new reality-- one that invites us to step into the extraordinary life Jesus has prepared for each one of us.

    The most distinct song on the album, “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” is a breathtaking, cinematic piece that seamlessly displays the purity and intimacy of our response to God’s love for us. The song ebbs and flows like the ocean itself. Sung with ethereal beauty, the words soar over an electronic symphony of blending melodies.

  • A NEW GENERATION OF WORSHIP MUSIC FROM HILLSONG

    Posted on September 23, 2013 by Family Christian

    This past July during Hillsong's Annual Conference in Sydney, Australia, the church introduced an exciting and new generation of worship music. Welcome Hillsong Young & Free, who will officially release their debut CD "We Are Young & Free" on October 1, 2013.

    Creating such a new sound is a bold move for Hillsong, who has a unique sound and worship style the world has come to know and love through their UNITED and LIVE brands. With Young & Free, this worship is stylistically more of a reflection of what youth are listening to now.

    “Young & Free is more than a label, it is also our message and mission,” shares Laura Toggs, team leader for Young & Free. “This is a generation called to stand strong in their youth and in their freedom, refusing to allow others to dismiss them for their age. Songs arising from Young & Free are unlike anything that we have ever done before, and we believe that through them young people will find life and deep, unending joy in Jesus. We are the voice of THIS generation.”

    Young & Free will also be traveling to the U.S. to perform at the first-ever Hillsong U.S. Conferences in New York City (Oct. 4 & 5) and Los Angeles (Oct. 18 & 19). Young & Free members will also join UNITED on their fall leg of the WELCOMEZION tour.

    Hillsong UNITED has had an impactful year with the release of ZION, which debuted at No. 4 on Billboard 200 with their highest Billboard debut and at No. 1 on the ARIA Australian chart. ZION has resonated with fans around the world.  Now fans can get the Oceans EP, which is being released due to the overwhelming response to the song “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” from ZION. “Oceans” was written by Matt Crocker, Joel Houston and Salomon Ligthelm.

Click here to purchase the Oceans EP.

    Fans can also pick-up the September/October issue of RELEVANT that features Houston on the cover.  RELEVANT is devoted to making an impact on progressive culture by covering faith, health, lifestyle, pop culture, career, relationships, current issues and music.

    Earlier this summer, UNITED toured the first half of their U.S. “Welcome Zion” tour performing in front of more than 80,000 fans. This leg of the tour was listed in the Top 20 Concert Tours from Pollstar. The Australian group will return in November for 10 additional tour stops including Boston, Atlanta and Miami as well as a stop in Canada for one show. These appearances will be highlighted at the first-ever Hillsong Conferences held in New York City on Oct. 4-5 at Radio City Music Hall, and in Los Angeles on Oct. 18-19 at the Nokia Theatre.
