I am sure that most Christians are familiar with songs by Hillsong. Many of them are on Christian radio stations and found in worship services. Even if you don’t attribute it to one group, you may recognize the songs.
This feature length film takes you behind the scenes with the group, United, from Australia.
About Hillsong – Let Hope Rise
This is a documentary where faith and music merge.
Capturing the on-stage energy and off-stage hearts of the Australia-based band Hillsong UNITED, Hillsong – Let Hope Rise is a new motion-picture genre—the theatrical worship experience.
The film explores Hillsong’s humble beginnings and astonishing rise to prominence as an international church whose songs are sung every Sunday by more than 50 million people worldwide.
My Thoughts on Hillsong – Let Hope Rise
I have loved several of Hillsong’s songs. The beat takes hold and the tunes can be catchy. But, at the end of the day you can see that they are truly living their mission to help lead people to Christ.
With a lifelong love of music and years in music ministry at church, I have a great appreciation for all that goes into their work. While I might have been in front on hundreds of people when cantoring or playing the piano, this group has tens of thousands for whom they are giving their all.
Their dedication to the music and mission of bring others towards Christ is admirable. And, more than their music, their ability to not change for the world is what amazes me most.
For anyone familiar with their music, this documentary will be a great way to see beyond the songs. For those who just enjoy seeing behind the scenes for music groups, you will be treated a one. Just don’t expect the drama you might see for a secular group as they are not living that kind of life.
So if you want to engage in this new theatrical worship experience and bring the thrill of live performances to your home, then pick up your own copy of Hillsong – Let Hope Rise.
