Multi-Platinum Selling Billboard No. 1 Contemporary Christian Powerhouse Hillsong UNITED Announces Surprise Album, Wonder Posted: Friday May 19th, 2017
Today, the multi-platinum-selling Christian music powerhouse and chart
leading Hillsong UNITED announced their sixth full-length studio album
titled "Wonder," set to be unveiled in all music stores
on June 9th. Undisputedly one of the genre's most influential artists in
the history of contemporary Christian music (over 2 million albums sold and
700 million career streams to date, remaining the #1 Christian artist on
all social media platforms reaching over 9 million fans combined), the band
that rocketed to no. 5 on Billboard's Top 200 with their last record
"Empires," hopes to re-awaken the innate sense of Wonder within
the human being.
"Have we lost the Wonder?" asked Joel Houston, front man for the modest
that has since become an international phenomenon.
Explaining intrinsically what it means further, Houston continues,
"The hope, the imagination to
dream, to believe, the tenderness to listen and lead first with mercy, the
grace to empathize, the courage to trust, the fearlessness to love without
pretense or condition. To see beyond the facts without dismissing them. To
respond beyond the fear without reciprocating it. To sing beyond the noise,
without adding to it. This is the challenge, and this is what worship- if
worship can be summed up as an expression of art and music and story- is
ultimately designed to do. To elevate the conversation, re-awaken the soul
to something other, and lift our eyes to the wonder of a superlative truth."
