Hillsong : Let Hope Rise Movie Review
"A documentary on the Australia-based band Hillsong and their rise to prominence as an international church." From imdb.com
As many people know , I am christian so when I saw that Hillsong was coming out . One of the most influential bands of our time. In the christian music world , as you watch this documentary you find out these humble beginnings of each band member. And the band itself, and the start of this mega church success.
We were the only ones in the movie theatre , which wasn't surprising a lot of faith based movies. Bring crowds but only during specific times, so we were the only ones in the movie theatre. But that isn't the point , right when the movie started. They played a message on screen , " please think of this like a concert , and a worship experience. Feel free to sing along with the songs." Which was a new thing for me , thats when they started off with the first song. WORDS on the screen! I was so excited and since it was just me and my little movie buddy. We sang and learned and watched , which was an awesome time for the both of us.
Learning about the hillsong church , was an eye opener these folks were from humble beginnings a small one room church , that is now a library. Then they started to have touring bands reaching out to the youth first , and then it just grew from there. Which is wonderful , on how much faith each member had in God with how they wanted to be used to his purpose.
Because when it all comes down to it , it isnt about us its about him..
