Hillsong Young & Free are a worship band based in Sydney who were formed out of the youth movement of Hillsong Church. Their upcoming release YOUTH REVIVAL which is set to be released Feb 26th, 2016 has already made waves, even into the mainstream music world with the release of their single ‘Where You Are’.
Leading up to the release of the ‘Where You Are’ single and music video MTV surprisingly approached the young group looking to feature the latest single nationally throughout Australia. The Young & Free band [also known as Y&F] accepted and even moved the release date of the music video to coincide with their appearance on one of Australia’s biggest and most influential music channels. Laura Toganivalu [leader of Y&F and daughter of Hillsong senior pastor Brian Houston] had this to say in response to the great news on her instagram page (@lauratoggs):
“I know we are excited… & unashamedly! This is the stuff dreams are made of… And I never ever want to get familiar with the opportunities that come our way… SO… I just want to thank whoever was (I genuinely have no idea) our video… and for thinking it was worthy enough to stand alongside today’s most popular music… My prayer is that it compels that little something that exists in every human heart to sear for its meaning… X #whereyouare #YOUTHREVIVAL”.
