NASHVILLE, TENN. (December 19, 2014) - Hillsong UNITED continues to make an impact with their No. 1 single "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)" as the song has received RIAA Platinum status. Hillsong was included also in 10 of Billboard's End of Year charts topping five of the charts: Top Christian Artists, Hot Christian Songs, Hot Christian Songs Artists, Christian Airplay Artists and Christian Digital Songs. As the group wraps up an incredible 2014 with awards and sales recognition, UNITED looks forward to 2015 as they will release new music with a full-length studio album. In addition in April 2015, Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment will release nationwide the film LET HOPE RISE - the HILLSONG Movie.

"The last couple of years have been an expectation-busting-juggernaut of pure grace and madness," shares Joel Houston, Hillsong Creative Director and Worship Leader. "It's been beyond what any of us could have thought, and we've chosen to not take a moment of it for granted. The last 12 months have been spent throwing ourselves into this next project and season like it's all we've got, and we're simply trusting that the same mysterious breathe that got us this far will take us deeper all over again."

Since the release of UNITED's 2013 album, ZION, which was their most successful and fastest selling album to date, the band has continued to grow their international reach. ZION produced UNITED's No. 1 hit, the Platinum-selling and multiple-Dove winning single, "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)." This was the group's first No.1 radio single, cracking the longest reign on Billboard's airplay/sales/streaming-based Hot Christian Songs chart. The lyric video for "Oceans" has a staggering 22.4 million views. Most recently, UNITED was award five GMA Dove Awards including the coveted Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for "Oceans." They were also nominated for their first American Music Award earlier this year.

About UNITED: UNITED is a worship band that originally rose out of the youth ministry of Hillsong Church in Sydney, Australia. This progressive worship band is a global recording and touring entity sent out to share the ever-evolving worship music of Hillsong Church to an international audience through live performances and records. Releasing their first album in 1999, UNITED has toured six continents and 42 nations since 2006. The touring entity of UNITED has made a huge wave in the United States as they became the first Christian artist to ever sell out Los Angeles' Staples Center. In addition to the Staples Center, UNITED has also sold out major venues in Seattle (ShoWare Center), New York (Radio City Music Hall - Hillsong Conference), Denver (Red Rocks Amphitheatre) and Los Angeles (Hollywood Bowl).
