Let Hope Rise is the name of a new film that charts the rise of Hillsong UNITED, a Christian band based out of Australia. Rather than singing their hearts out at an intimate church gathering each Sunday, this group plays for stadiums full of people who are all there to share in the same message.

Although the band got its start in Australia, the group now travels the world, hosting events to over 100,000 attendees weekly. Through music, Hillsong has completely transformed the way Christian messages are received by many. More rock concert than church environment, it is hardly a wonder that newcomers flock to these events on a weekly basis.

As well as connecting with the Christian community, Hillsong uses its influence to support a number of charitable causes around the world, such as issues like human trafficking, poverty, hunger and education.
