Background on Hillsong
Hillsong Church is an Australian based church that is involved in the creation of contemporary Christian music. Hillsongs was originally known as the Hills Christian Life Center, and it was formed in 1983 by Brian and Bobbie Houston. There are international offshoots of the church in the UK, the Ukraine and South Africa as well as Paris and Moscow. The band Hillsong United began to release recordings in the 1990s through their youth group offshoot. The Hillsong United offshoot began as the youth wing of the Hillsong Church and, owing to its promotion and use of music as a form of worship, developed the Hillsong United band. This band is a fluid collaboration of church members combined with some mainstays, and it has released an album a year since 1999.
