I’m a longtime Hillsong fan. I’ve always been impressed by their heart for worship and innovative spirit. They have influenced the Church in so many ways over the years and set the bar for excellence in multiple areas of ministry. Their latest addition to their collection of worship bands, Young & Free, has gotten a lot of recent attention–and rightfully so. They have a great album that is both meaningful and exciting. It’s great to see a worship band rising up that is focused on the new generation of youth in the same way that United impacted me at that age.
I was really inspired by the visuals in this concert video that they recently uploaded. They have a look that really reminds me of the old intro to Saved By The Bell, but with a new-school feel. If you haven’t seen these videos, prepare to be taken aback at first. Expect for it to be very different than your typical Sunday morning media. But also take time to appreciate that they are targeting a specific age group and doing it really well. Pay special attention to the style of the lyrics on the side screens—I thought they were really neat.
