This June 2, 2011 Hillsong United will come back in the Philippines live for the third time. The band has been here twice before to lead Filipinos into a heart of worship for our God. I have been to one of their previous concerts and it was such a great experience to be in the midst of so many people coming to praise and worship our Maker.
This time the concert will be held at Araneta Coliseum. The concert title “Aftermath” is named after their latest praise and worship album.

Band Bio and History: (as taken from Wikipedia)
The Hillsong United band is an Australian rock and worship band, a part of Hillsong Church’s youth ministry Hillsong United. Their music is a contemporary style of praise and worship tempered with mainstream rock.
The band formed as close friends from within youth ministry, originally called ‘Powerhouse Youth’, led for many years by Donna Crouch. As the house band for the youth meetings of Powerhouse, the band played covers of Hillsong Church and various other ministries’ music, sometimes members contributing to Youth Alive and its’ albums (Darlene Zschech was involved in Youth Alive before Hillsong Church). Dr. Mark Evans (Macquarie Uni) states in his Ph. D thesis, “A youth band was formed from the Hillsong music team, which took what was happening in the church musically and played it louder and rockier, appealing directly to a youth demographic”. Steve McPherson, Deb Ezzy and Donia Makedonez were significant members. Powerhouse grew and was split in the late 1990s into two youth groups, ‘Powerhouse’ (18-25 years of age) and ‘Wildlife’ (12-16 yrs). Reuben Morgan, assisted by Marcus Beaumont and Tanya Riches were placed in charge of the Powerhouse band, with the former Channel V Leg-Up competition winner ‘Able’ band boys, Joel Houston and Marty Sampson in charge of Wildlife, while Luke Munns was the main drummer, and Michael Guy Chislett the main guitarist. In the Summer of 1997, the new team made a huge impact at their youth ministry’s Summer Camp. After coming back from Summer Camp with God full in their hearts, the many youth ministries in Hillsong Church joined together as one, and started to call the nights, “UNITED” Nights. When united, God does something powerful.
