Hillsong's worship leader Hannah Hobbs has signed with Capitol Music Group and she will be releasing her own solo worship album. Her debut album SUNDOWN. A Live Worship Project will be available on Feb 10, 2023.
Hobbs writes, "The heartbeat behind this project was to carve out space for a handful of close friends and family, to take Sabbath - to worship and rest in the presence of God. The word Sabbath comes to us from the Hebrew word 'Shabbat.' Shabbat literally means "to stop" or "to rest." The Sabbath is typically observed from Friday Sundown to Saturday Sundown. A day of worship, rest and an effort to eliminate distractions and draw near to God. And so, my hope is that this project will become a 'Sundown' moment for people just like you. An open door, signifying us stepping in to a time of rest and refreshing in God's presence."
Hobbs had co-written many Hillsong worship songs including "Wake,""Love Goes On," and "Thank You Jesus." She is the Creative Pastor of Hillsong's City Campus in Sydney. Having first made a decision for Christ at 13 years of age when a friend invited her to church, Hannah quickly became involved in the church's youth praise and worship team as a guitarist, worship leader and then songwriter. Now, as an oversight of one of Hillsong's largest creative teams, Hannah's ability to see the 'gold' in people has led to her discovering some of our greatest young worship leaders and musical talents and mentoring them in their gift and calling.
With an unassuming leadership style, genuine belief in others, and the gift of encouragement, Hannah's love for Jesus is contagious and people flourish under her leadership. Both her and her husband Jarad are passionate about seeing people connect with the heart of God, and leads the church congregation in worship weekly with a compelling presence. In response to the question of what she loves most about her role, Hannah says, 'I love our team. It is full of incredible people.' She is simply a lover of Jesus and of people.
In anticipation of her new album, she releases two new songs as a preview of her new project:
