Hillsong United        

Christian Rock Band Known for "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)"

Hillsong United is a Christian worship band that originated as a part of Hillsong Church. They are best known for their 2013 single "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)," which has been certified platinum three times over by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Formed in 1998 as part of Hillsong's youth ministry, the band consists of several rotating worship leaders from the church, including Joel Houston, Taya Smith-Gaukroger, Matt Crocker, Jonathon Douglass, Jad Gillies, and Benjamin Hastings.

Hillsong worship leader Darlene Zschech recommended that they record an album, which resulted in their 1998 debut extended play, One, which was released alongside the Hillsong Worship album Touching Heaven Changing Earth.

Since then, the group has released over 10 annual live albums, as well as several studio albums. The band composes songs and performs in church services as well as concerts on worldwide tours.

In 2014, they won five Dove Awards, including song of the year for "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)." In 2015, they won a Billboard Music Award in the category Top Christian Artist. The band won three Dove Awards in 2016 and Recorded Worship Song of the Year for "So Will I (100 BillionX)" in 2018.
