Hillsong United Bio
The heart of Hillsong 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 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 the production that goes with that, it’s all an expression of a really extraordinary God doing what only He can do through really ordinary people who love Him and want to serve Him. To simply serve God and allow Him to do what only He can do has always been the team’s desire.
“We’re going into this next season full of expectation and a desire to go further and deeper to find new ways to bring people into the presence of God, which is really not that difficult to do if we allow God to be God in the midst of it all.” – Joel Houston.
