Hillsong Worship, the internationally renowned worship group from Australian megachurch Hillsong in Sydney, is set to release a new live album in October called Open Heaven/River Wild.
Described as Hillsong's "congregational expression" of worship, the project was recorded live at the church's annual conference in Sydney back in June, which was the first time that has ever been done. More than 25,000 congregants, including pop star Justin Bieber, attended the five-day conference and the new album features songs written by several Hillsong worship leaders, including Hillsong United's Joel Houston and Taya Smith.

"This is the premise of the album and our prayer is that these songs would ignite and stir within you a passion for God and a love for people." more >>
