Hillsong UNITED'S Taya Smith is engaged. Smith is the voice behind UNITED's mega hit "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)." Taya took to Instagram on December 29th posting what appears to be an engagement ring with the caption "So this happened. . ."
The post was followed by a verse from Romans which reads, "Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God's Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don't know how or what to pray, it doesn't matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That's why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good."
According to the Hillsong website, Smith says she is "most passionate about worship - true, honest worship. There is nothing like it. It's never about you or how well you can sing - it's always about Jesus and who He is. My hope is to lead people to worship more passionately and go deeper in their relationship with Jesus than they have before."
The twenty-something rose to international acclaim on songs like "Oceans" and "Touch The Sky" as well as more recent tunes on the Empires and Zion albums.
