For well over 20 years now we have been singing songs like ‘Shout To The Lord’ and ‘Power Of Love’. Those songs originated from the musical inspiration of Hillsong. Hillsong changed the way Praise and Worship singers delivered standard hymns. Every major youth gathering you attend is guaranteed to make use of their popular songs.
Their influences even stretch into contemporary gospel when you hear Tye Tribett’s ‘I Will Bless The Lord’, Tamela Mann’s ‘Take Me To The King’ and even Mary Mary’s ‘Shackles’ harken back to an inspiration tone similar to Hillsong. Hillsong’s music is based in contemporary songs using scripture with tempos that inspire physical invocation.
Hillsong’s most successful albums, the Live Album Series, lead by Darlene Zschech and Reuben Morgan, have all achieved gold status in Australia and, since the inception in 1992 of the annual live praise and worship albums, Hillsong has branched out and released other albums including the worship series Hillsong United, Hillsong Kids, Hillsong London, Christmas albums and compilation albums.
