Hillsong hails from Sydney, Australia and has inspired individuals and churches worldwide to praise and worship our God and to bring Him glory. A major component of Hillsong’s dynamic worship services is the original, contemporary music that continues to emerge from the church’s musicians and writers. Hillsong Music collectively refers to the music produced by Hillsong Church and distributed around the world. Affectionately known as 'the church that never sleeps', Hillsong Church (which consists of a company of dedicated and devoted people) exists to bless the community, city and nation in which it is planted. Their influence on the global Church was recognized twice by the Gospel Music Association which presented “International Awards” to Hillsong Music and its modern worship band Hillsong United in recognition of their impact on the worldwide Church.
