Given that the Parachute Christian Music Festival is in full swing, it's only fitting that we feature a Parachute headliner.
Hillsongs United will play a worship set tonight. Sunday night is always our fave time at Parachute - there's something amazing about worshipping God under the stars amongst a crowd of thousands. And for the mainly youth audience, Hillsongs United hits the spot. They started out as the youth band at the Hillsongs church in Sydney, but are now top performers in their own right. And out front is none other than Brooke Ligertwood (nee Fraser). Whilst she continues her solo career under her maiden name, Brooke has become an integral part of United.
And it's one of her songs we feature today - Hosanna. One of the things that we love about modern Christian music is the fusion of timeless words with contemporary music, and this song is a perfect illustration - it takes the words sung by the angels thousands of years ago and blends them into a song to be sung by young people here and now - enjoy!
