Hillsong Live Tickets
Like the beat and chant of a tribal dance, the music of Hillsong Live rises from the environs of its congregational worship and pervades the senses of the acquiescent patrons. The Hillsong Church, a Pentecostal megachurch located in Sydney Australia has developed a unique brand of contemporary Christian and worship music over the course of its existence since the eighties and unleashed its "praiseworthy" vibes across the globe. What once used to be considered the Devil's music by the Christian denominations has now been embraced by some as the vehicle for asserting the commitment to perpetually inundate the Body of Christ with nouveau worship oriented renditions.
Before there was Hillsong Live, there was Hillsong in-house music that echoed within the walls of the Hillsong Church, known as the Hills Christian Life Center when it was established in the early eighties by the New Zealand couple Brian and Bobbi Houston. Following the success of annual Hillsong Conferences in the late eighties, the Hills lot moved into the spanking new premises of the Hills Center and soon garnered considerable popular acclaim due to their joyous outpourings. The Hillsong Live phenomenon was sparked off by the release of a live CD in1992, the Power of Your Love , featuring worship leader cum singer/songwriters Darlene Zschech and Geoff Bullock. By the end of the 20th century, the Hillsong Live brand of music had become well entrenched its global audience through its respective 8 album releases and became bigger than that of Hills Christian Life Center itself. Hence the latter was renamed simply as Hillsong Church, after having been shifted to the Baulkham Hills' Norwest Business Park in 1997, and encompassed its mother church the Sydney Christian Life Centre as well.
The Hillsong Live Album Series are the quite literally the golden face of the Hillsong Church. All 21 albums released in the past 2 decades have struck gold, apparently by the grace of Jesus Christ, as well as that of the Australian Record Industry Association. Their third album People Just Like Us, released in 1994, was the first to be elevated to a platinum certification. The 1997 offering Shout to the Lord clinched international recognition via a Dove Awards nomination for the "Praise & Worship Album of the Year" in Nashville USA, with the record's title song being nominated for 'Song of the Year' the following year in the same awards. By your Side , released on the eve of the new millennium again notched a 'Praise & Worship Album of the Year' nomination at the 2001 Dove Awards for the Hillsong Live music brand, with songwriter Darlene Zschech having been bestowed with a International Impact of the Year Award from the American Gospel Music Association in Nashville, USA two years earlier.
2001's Your Are My World and 2002's Blessed kept up the tradition of clinching Dove Award nominations, with 2004's For All You've Done debuting at the top spot on the Australian Album Charts, the first for a contemporary Christian musical record in the Land Down Under. The annual happening of the Hillsong Conference for that year turned in to a virtual sales spree for the record, enabling the Hillsong Live lot to reap the fruits "for all that they'd done". Throughout the rest of the 2000s, sings such as "Inside Out", "Hosanna" and "The Stand" all received the golden touch, with 2009's "Mighty to Save", written by Ben Fielding and Reuben Morgan finally fulfilling bringing home a Dove Award as the 'Worship Song of the Year' and asserting its might at the top of the Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI).
Over the years, some intriguing and downright despicable activities have affected the "holier than though" profile of the Hillsong legacy. In 2000, Frank Houston, father of Hillsong founder, confessed his sexual abuse of a minor of his congregation 30 years earlier. Initially having to be run on donations, the Hillsong enterprise has long since been seeing a windfall of profits, with an annual tax-free income of $ 50 million being claimed by founder/CEO Brian Houston in 2005. Nonetheless, the power of music has really worked wonders for advancing the power of Christ through the Hillsong Live brand. The track "Shout to the Lord" is chanted like a mantra by around 25-30 million churchgoers every week. So book your Hillsong Live tickets now to engage en masse in a rocking "immaculately conceived" musical offering to the Body of Christ.
