Hillsong United is a group from Australia. They are the worship band at Hillsong Church there. You may think you don't know anything they sing but I can assure you that you do. You see their worship music is sweeping all over this world. It has impacted lives over and over again. And more than likely you sing many of their songs on Sunday morning at your church like Mighty To Save, From The Inside Out, Stand, Stronger, Salvation Is Here, etc.
The concert was amazing! Well maybe I should rephrase that the worship service was amazing! The Lord was definitely present. It was so incredible to see and be apart of the huge crowd joining together to worship our God. Towards the middle of the service the sky opened up and the rain came down along with thunder and lightening. You might think that was the end of the service but that was hardly the case. The band continued to play, the crowd continued to worship and the Lord's name continued to be lifted high. Our seats were covered so we were not in the rain but oh how I would have loved to have been out on the lawn in the rain worshiping with my hands lifted high. It was such a powerful night and I am just so thankful that I was able to go and be apart of such an amazing service. Here is a little collage of my mom and I, Katie, and her mom, Christen and her mom, and then us three girls. Morgan also went with us but we didn't take any other pictures than the ones you see below. So no pics of Morgan this go around but don't worry I'll be sure she is in the next ones!
The plan was to eat at La Parilla before and then head over to the concert. So that is what we did. When we got there the concert had already started but I was certain that Miranda Lambert would go on first. I was very wrong. And yes you guessed it I missed seeing Lady Antebellum all together. Total bummer.
I didn't stay bummed out for too long though b/c Kenny came out very soon after. Amanda and Lindsey were with me so they knew exactly what to expect from me when Kenny came on stage. But there was one person with us who was experiencing it for the first time. I don't believe that I scared them too much though. Kenny did a lot of his older songs but it was a wonderful show. And he made my night when he sang "Me And You". That is my all time favorite Kenny song EVER and he has not sang that song live in 6 yrs. So I was absolutely ecstatic when I heard the music begin to play.
Our seats for the show were covered so they were pretty good seats. I was especially glad we had them once it began to rain. We were able to enjoy the concert and stay dry. Well we stayed dry until it was time to go back to the car. By the time we finally made it to the car we were all completely soaked from head to toe. Since I had already been through the exact same thing the night before all I could do was laugh. It certainly made for a great story to end the night! Here are a few pics from the show...
