Hillsong United: EMPIRES {Review & Giveaway}


There are very few artists that I will rush out and buy a physical album the day it's released for anymore.  Hillsong Worship just so happens to be one of those.  I was given an advanced copy of their latest album and was over the moon when I saw it in my mailbox!

UNITED are committed to writing songs that speak truth, create a unique sound, connect with churches, individuals and ultimately connect people everywhere with God.  UNITED serve in church as a part of the wider Hillsong Worship and Creative team when they are home. 

This album did not disappointment and has been on constant rotation in my car, since I received it.  My personal favorite from this album is: "Even when it hurts".  The lyrics, Even when the fight seems lost, I'll praise You.  Even when it hurts like hell, I'll praise You.  Even when it makes no sense to sing, louder then I'll sing Your praise, speak right to me.  I remember going to church and seeing people lift their hands up during worship and not understanding the concept.  Now, as an adult, I raise my arms and sometimes even cry during worship.  I know now, those people went through something, just as I have, they're all in and know exactly where their help comes from.  Those lyrics reminded me of that just over pouring of His great praise.  No matter how bad it gets, I will always sing your praises.

As an added bonus, I have an extra copy of their latest album to giveaway to a lucky reader!  To enter please leave a comment below telling us what you're looking forward to doing this summer.  For bonus entries feel free to share on social media and link back to those in another comment!
