Hillsong UNITED Gets Four Nominations At Billboard Music Awards 2016

Hillsong UNITED added another feather to its cap after receiving four nominations at the Billboard Music Awards 2016. The announcement was made on ABC's Good Morning America and it was revealed that Hillsong UNITED was nominated for Top Christian Artist, Top Christian Album for "EMPIRES," and Top Christian Song for "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)" and "Touch the Sky." Last year, the group won the Top Christian Artist category and was nominated for Top Christian Song. Hillsong UNITED is in the middle of the "EMPIRES" tour with Lauren Daigle, which will conclude in Chicago, Ill., on July 30. The album debuted at No. 5 on Billboard's Top 200.

Joel Houston of Hillsong UNITED said that they are very excited about the "EMPIRES" tour because it has been a long time since they toured the United States since "WelcomeZion 2013." "We write songs to be sung with people - they are always for the people - so when we get to sing these songs with people on the road, it is the purpose of why we do what we do," he said. "We can't wait to worship with people singing all the new EMPIRES songs as well as everyone's favorites." On April 28, the Australian band will be at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Md., and in Agganis Arena at Boston University in Boston, Mass., the next night. On April 30, Hillsong UNITED will be at the Cross Insurance Arena in Portland, Maine. They will have 11 more performances in May across the U.S.. Will Hillsong UNITED win in any or all of the four categories it was nominated? Make sure to watch the Billboard Music Awards 2016 on Sunday, May 22, on ABC, to find out.
