Nashville, Tenn.: Hillsong UNITED’s 2013 release of Zion garnered RIAA Gold Certification, totaling more than 500K in sales. Of the songs found on Zion is “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” which spent a record breaking 45 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs Chart and was the first Christian song to hit Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart. Most recently, the platinum selling song was honored with a 2016 Billboard Music Award for “Top Christian Song.”

In July, Hillsong UNITED surprised fans by releasing Of Dirt And Grace - Live From The Land, a LIVE visual take on songs from their best selling EMPIRES recorded and filmed at Biblically historical locations throughout Israel. Upon its release, the digital album topped the Soundscan Praise & Worship Chart, hitting No. 2 on the Billboard Contemporary Christian Chart, No. 2 on Soundscan Christian/Gospel Digital Album Chart and top 40 on the Billboard Top 200.
