• Hillsong Worship's Brooke (Fraser) Ligertwood Shares Her Testimony

    Wednesday, February 22, 2017

    “I didn't grow up in a household of faith; but, from when I was a really little girl I would find myself daydreaming about God,” Brooke recalls. “I have vivid memories of being in the playground at recess and looking at the sky and the clouds and the trees and thinking about God and hoping He was having a nice day.” - Brooke (Fraser) Ligertwood, Hillsong Worship

    During a visit to the Air1 studios, Brooke opened up about life as a little girl and what brought her to faith in Jesus Christ. The story of her inquisitive, child-like faith is captured in this video: 

    In 2005, Brooke moved from New Zealand to Australia. On her first night in Sydney, she went to a barbecue at Hillsong Church and met her future husband, Scott Ligertwood. Just good friends, at first, they eventually started dating and married in 2008. These days, Brooke and Scott live in Southern California with their daughter, Dylan. They attend Hillsong LA and Brooke considers going to church as more than just a 'Sunday experience'; instead, it's an opportunity to 'do life' with each other...

    "The idea that the people that you sit beside on Sunday aren't just people that you brush shoulders with and never speak with again during the week. But, the idea of true community being people that you do the highs and the lows with, people that pray with you when things are tough and rejoice with you when things are going great.”

    Brooke reflects more on doing life with the Hillsong community here:

    Hillary Scott Discusses Family Legacy and for King & Country Poses Awkwardly - All @ the 59th Grammy Awards!

    Monday, February 13, 2017

    The 59th Grammy Awards proved to be a day to remember for Hillary Scott and The Scott Family; and, leaving a family legacy was a big part of it... 

    "Legacy is a perfect word," Hillary shares after being asked what it feels like to have her family with her at this year's show. "I think we all want to do something on this earth and leave a mark that makes the world better and to be able to do that with your family, I think is the ultimate ... it's the ultimate gift.”

    Hillary, along with her family, went on to win Grammy Awards in two categories: Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for " Thy Will" and Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for Love Remains.

    After receiving the award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album, Hillary choked back tears saying, "Thank you so much. I want my daddy to talk." Lang Scott, Hillary's dad, went on to summarize the touching story and hope behind their album:

    “We've been crying since this project started," Lang says. “This started as a thank-you to three-hundred people, close friends and family, that supported us through their prayers and love as we battled with my dad for a six month period of time over leukemia. We are humbled ... from day one our hope was that this music would bring hope to people. Our prayer, from day one and throughout, was that it would permeate to people that would hear it that are in need and that it would give them comfort and encourage them. So, we are grateful as a family.”

    There were more opportunities to celebrate throughout the day - like this time when Hillary got together for a photo with fellow nominees Joel & Luke Smallbone of for King & Country

     

    And, this one where the Smallbone family made memories, if a tad awkward, of their own:
