Who Are Hillsong United?
Formed in 1998 as part of Sydney, Australia’s Hillsong Church, Hillsong United is a worship band that came together as part of Hillsong’s youth ministry program. Lead by a group of rotating ministry leaders, Hillsong United (formerly United Live) wrote several songs that eventually were recorded and compiled to create their debut EP, One. The EP was released alongside the Hillsong Worship album Touching Heaven Changing Earth.
In the years since their debut, Hillsong United have released eleven live-recorded albums, as well as four studio albums. In 2014, they won five Dove Awards, including song of the year for the track “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail).” The following year, they earned their second AMA nomination, as well as winning the Billboard Music Award for Top Christian Artist. In 2016, they took home an additional three Dove Awards. Hillsong United composes all their original material, performing in church services and concerts around the world.
