I’ve been privileged to be an Executive Producer on the feature film Let Hope Rise, that tells the story of the world’s most popular worship band—Hillsong United, based at Hillsong Church in Sydney, Australia. The picture is finally locked, and as Deadline Hollywood reports, Relativity Media will be releasing the movie to theaters nationwide starting May 29. We’re proud of the band and the movie, and thrilled that a global audience will see the story of a church worship band that’s sold out venues like The Hollywood Bowl, Red Rocks, Madison Square Garden and other world-class venues. The film gets to the heart of what motivates them to do it and the challenges they face in the process.
My wife, Kathleen, and I watched the latest cut a couple of nights ago with the movie’s producer, Jonathan Bock, and Hillsong Founder and Pastor Brian Houston. It’s a great experience, and it’s being released in Surround Sound so you’ll experience the music as if you were right in the venue.
