The heart of UNITED is to create music that reveals the truth of who Jesus is. In studio and out of the studio, on tour or at home, Hillsong UNITED is committed to writing songs that speak truth, create a unique sound, connects with churches, individuals and ultimately connects people everywhere with God.
Fronted by worship leaders Taya Smith, Joel Houston, Jad Gillies, JD and Matt Crocker, the team is an evolving collaboration of pastors, worship leaders, musicians and songwriters -‐ all intentional about giving voice to a generation passionate about God.
Everything UNITED does, whether it be from recording or writing songs, to playing them in front of people and all that goes with that, it’s an expression of a really extraordinary God doing what only He can do through really ordinary people who love Him, want to serve Him and to build His Church. To simply serve God and allow Him to do what only He can do has always been the team’s desire.
UNITED created “People” with this sole purpose: to bring unity amongst people everywhere. As a band, the purpose has been simple––to love God and love people as people loved by God.
Touring the record has been nothing short of incredible as stadiums filled to the brim across the earth just before we’d face a crucial and testing time in our world due to a pandemic.
“The People Tour: Live from Madison Square Garden” is a moment we want to invite everyone into. It brings us back to main purpose of this record: to champion people everywhere to remember the good grace of this unshakable Gospel we have.
