April 2,2015 Joel Houston and Carl Lentz the co lead pastors of Hillsong Church New York appeared on the TODAY Show with Kathy Lee and Hoda. Joel is the worship leader for the Australian Christian band Hillsong United. Then that was their first live American broadcast television appearance of the band, which performed at the time “Touch the sky” from their Empires Album. You can watch that video here.
Fast forward 17 months later Hillsong United will be appearing Live for the second time on the TODAY show with Kathie Lee and Hoda tomorrow morning September 6th 2016 on NBC. With the release of the documentary film of the worship band “Let Hope Rise” a Hillsong Movie in theaters next Friday Sept 16th, which chronicles the band’s life and the music they create to bless people around the world, bringing worship to the theaters.
Come back later this week to read my review On the film.
So what can we expect to see and hear from the Australian worship band? Topics will include the film release of Let Hope Rise and maybe a performance from their newest visual album “of Dirt and Grace” which was filmed in key biblical locations in Isreal and Lebanon.
