About Hillsong Live
Hillsong isn't really a band or a group as much as they are a church -- the largest church in Australia's history, to be exact. Based in Sydney, Hillsong Church exists for the stated purpose of "connecting people to the living God." To facilitate that, there are weekly services in a variety of languages and locations, a TV show, conferences, books, a college, and, of course, music. Superstar worship leader Darlene Zschech oversees a broad range of worship bands and individual worship leaders at Hillsong, including some who have had breakout success (Reuben Morgan, the youth band Hillsong United). Each of the church's annual live releases continues to become modern worship staples, often setting the tone for where the genre is headed.
