Say the Word-Hillsong United

Published on by Andrew


This is the 2nd single from the album, "EMPIRES" which came out June 2015. 

Hillsong United was formed by the youth ministry band at Hillsong Church in 1998 and it's members have changed regularly with various worship leaders stepping in to lead the band. They have released 11 annual live albums and 4 studio albums.

The main vocalist for "Say the Word" is Taya Smith, who was also the voice behind their big hit, "Oceans" a couple of years ago. She was an addition to the band in 2013, when the ever popular Brooke Fraser left to pursue other musical ventures. 

 

"We wanted to create songs that first seek to listen, then speak the good news of Jesus and His grace into the dichotomy, tension and hopeful-collision of this broken and fragile world we see here and now, and the unshakable and mysterious reality of the Kingdom we can't see. Our desire has been to simply create the most honest project we could."

- Joel Houston (lead singer talking about "EMPIRES")
