Multi-platinum-selling Christian music powerhouse and chart leading Hillsong UNITED has released a video of their live performance of their forthcoming album's track "Wonder" in Caesarea, Israel. "It was surreal to be in a place, that would have been incredible to see in its heyday - the wonder of it all and to be able to worship here," the band shares.
"Have we lost the Wonder?" asked Joel Houston, front man for the modest Australia-born band that has since become an international phenomenon.
Explaining intrinsically what it means further, Houston continues, "The hope, the imagination to dream, to believe, the tenderness to listen and lead first with mercy, the grace to empathize, the courage to trust, the fearlessness to love without pretense or condition. To see beyond the facts without dismissing them. To respond beyond the fear without reciprocating it. To sing beyond the noise, without adding to it. This is the challenge, and this is what worship- if worship can be summed up as an expression of art and music and story- is ultimately designed to do. To elevate the conversation, re-awaken the soul to something other, and lift our eyes to the wonder of a superlative truth."
With the announcement comes two instant grats on iTunes and Spotify for songs "Wonder" and "Splinters and Stones."
