Hillsong launch Young & Free youth worship initiative

A NEW spin off from Australia's mega-church Hillsong was officially launched at the recent annual Hillsong Conference in Sydney. Young & Free is described as "more of a reflection of what youth are listening to now." Said Young & Free team leader Laura Toggs, "Young & Free is more than a label, it is also our message and mission. This is a generation called to stand strong in their youth and in their freedom, refusing to allow others to dismiss them for their age. Songs arising from Young & Free are unlike anything that we have ever done before, and we believe that through them young people will find life and deep, unending joy in Jesus. We are the voice of THIS generation." Young & Free's debut single "Alive" has already reached number one on the iTunes Christian & Gospel Singles Chart. The debut album 'We Are Young & Free' will be released on 1st October. CR
