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.

There is More
Runtime: 1 hr 12 minIn Genesis 32 we read the story of Jacob wrestling with God through the night. On the other side of Jacob’s divine encounter was a new name, a new blessing, a new identity and a new way of walking (literally). Will we be a worshipping people who are not content to sleep through the night (spiritually speaking) and wake in the morning unchanged? Like Jacob, will we enter into the wrestle with God, dare to know Him more intimately and be changed in the process? This is the premise for Hillsong Worship’s 26th live praise and worship album. The title, “THERE IS MORE”, truly is a statement-of-belief more than a record title. As Brooke Ligertwood writes, “THERE IS MORE at stake than we dare realize - souls, communities, families, nations on the other side of our wrestle through the night seasons. Our personal freedom is for corporate revival. THERE IS MORE of God and more to God and His love than we can possibly conceive of.” With songs such as, “Who You Say I Am”, “Be Still”, “The Passion” and “New Wine”, “THERE IS MORE” strikes the balance of contemplative devotion and powerful declarations of praise for both individuals and congregations alike.

With breathtaking imagery and impacting visuals and audio, this live project is one of the most unique to come out of Hillsong.
