LOS ANGELES (May 8, 2019) — Multi-platinum selling and award-winning group, Hillsong UNITED celebrates its largest career street week sales to date with the release of their new album, People.” Debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album, Top Christian/ Gospel Album and Top Current Album charts, the compilation also garnered the No. 1 spot on HITS Top 50 Chart and No. 2 on Billboard’s Top 200. The monumental project generated over 8 MILLION streams and over 100K in albums sold within its first week, solidifying UNITED’s status as the most influential group found within contemporary Christian music. The collection boasts 12 tracks, including the breakout single “Good Grace” which the band recently performed live on Good Morning America

With an impressive 13 live albums in their repertoire, Hillsong UNITED continues their winning streak with this new catalog addition. Each song on the new album conveys an underlying theme of unity and aims to reflect the core values of the group while addressing the current state of the world. The 12 tracks that make up “People” include previously released singles "As You Find Me," “Good Grace,” “Whole Heart (Hold Me Now),” and Another in the Fire.” Debuting in December 2018, “Good Grace” set the record as UNITED’s highest streaming street week career single, which “Whole Heart” subsequently broke by an increase of 12% upon its release in January 2019. "As You Find Me" has already garnered 8.2+ million global streams/YouTube views to date, while “Whole Heart” and “Good Grace” have amassed over 31.8+ million global streams (including YouTube views) collectively. Their latest track, “Another in the Fire,” has already garnered 4.4+ million global streams

In support of “PEOPLE,” Hillsong UNITED returned to the United States for the first time in nearly three years kicking off its ‘The People Tour” in Austin, Texas on April 25. The arena circuit includes a total of 33 stops before culminating at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on July 2. Tickets are on sale now at hillsongunited.com.

About Hillsong UNITED: 
Hillsong UNITED is a multi-award-winning, platinum-selling artist whose chart successes (repeatedly No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian charts and up to No. 2 on Billboard 200) are only bested by the millions of lives they’ve impacted across the globe. Reporting over 50 million people singing from the Hillsong catalogue songs every Sunday, the modest band born from a youth ministry out of Hillsong Church in Australia, touts a reach of over 10 million across all major social network platforms to date, including 2.1 billion minutes garnered from YouTube viewers. Comprised of an evolving, eclectic mix of musicians and songwriters, the band is led by Joel Houston and Taya, names that have become synonymous with Christian radio, dominating airwaves with every new release. Their last four studio albums have each topped the USA Christian chart, with "Zion" and "Empires" charting no. 1 ("Zion" recently also went Gold in the U.S.); “Oceans,” written by Houston and band member Matt Crocker recently went triple platinum in the States, counting 200+ million streams and reigning on top of the Christian songs chart for a record 54 weeks. In studio, on tour or at home, Hillsong UNITED is committed to writing songs that speak truth, create a unique sound and connect people everywhere with God, evident by the success they’ve seen globally. With over 50 countries and six continents visited, Hillsong UNITED continues to sell out arenas and stadiums around the world, including sold-out nights at the Forum, STAPLES Center and The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, The Toyota Center, Oracle Arena, Air Canada Arena, American Airlines Arena (Miami and Dallas), and Red Rocks to scratch the surface. Hillsong UNITED functions from the deep understanding that everything they do is an expression of a really extraordinary God doing what only He can do, through really ordinary people.
