Tonight was the first night of hillsong for this year. My night rally ticket is for the 4.30 sessions so tonight we had the opening celebrations featuring the Watoto Children's Choir from Uganda. The night started with a multi-media display about grace as the curtains went up on the stage to reveal a full orchestra. Marty Sampson then started singing an arrangement of 'amazing grace'. He then left the stage only to be replaced by another member of the Hillsong team who then started singing a more familiar version of 'Amazing Grace' only to be joined live on stage in the chorus by Chris Tomlin! I was so excited - i'm embarrased to say that i jumped and grabbed my friend's arm! (I've been a fan from before his first album came out, so it was great to finally see him live - that's my excuse and i'm sticking to it!) Tomorow morning we have John Bevere, which is going to be great! If you're at hillsong this week, leave a comment and let me know!
