Hillsong Young & Free        

Contemporary Worship Music Group

GRAMMY® nominated Hillsong Young & Free is the youth worship team at Hillsong Church. Young & Free is the third extension of the Hillsong worship ministry, which also includes Hillsong Worship and Hillsong UNITED. Unlike their elder siblings, Young & Free shift the sonic focus from guitar-centric worship band music and take inspiration from contemporary pop and electronic production, which results in a Top 40 sound with a spiritual message. Their first album We Are Young & Free (Live) (2013) and second album Youth Revival (Live) (2016), both garnered No. 1 spots on Billboard’s Top Christian / Gospel Albums Chart. Of their several Top Two Christian albums, 2016's Youth Revival was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album. With a positive message and EDM and pop-influenced sound, Young & Free has scored five No. 1 radio singles and received positive coverage on MTV, MTV Hits, mtvU, along with other influential pop-culture platforms and blogs. Into the 2020s, they continued to issue a steady stream of material, including 2018's III (Live at Hillsong Conference) and 2020's All of My Best Friends, which received acoustic and Spanish-language treatments in 2021. Young & Free continues to fill arenas across the globe for live worship events, and has engaged millions of social media users in an online conversation about what it means for today’s youth to be followers of Jesus.
