Taya Smith Hillsong Wikipedia
She is a passionate worship leader who has captured the hearts of believers across the globe with her vocals in ‘Oceans’ and ‘A Million Suns’ on UNITED’s most recent album, Zion. Taya’s passion for the house of God was first nurtured in Lismore as a part of the worship team and as a youth leader.
When secular singing work led to Taya moving to Sydney in 2010, she became a part of Hillsong Church’s City Campus as a volunteer in the youth and young adults ministries and the church creative team. Soon after, her love for both worship and youth came together perfectly as she became involved in the church’s youth worship expression Young & Free’s debut album, and subsequent tours.
In February 2013, Taya became a part of Hillsong’s creative staff with responsibilities that have ranged from development and oversight of the city vocal team, creative elements for young adult events, vocals in key Hillsong events as well as touring with Young & Free and UNITED.
Yet for Taya, ‘home is the prize’ and whenever she’s not traveling, she can be found pastoring individuals in the creative team, running prayer meetings, or leading worship in a weekend service.
As she says, ‘I am most passionate about worship – true, honest worship. There is nothing like it. It’s never about you or how well you can sing – it’s always about Jesus and who He is. My hope is to lead people to worship more passionately and go deeper in their relationship with Jesus than they have before.
The fact that I get to point people to Him through songs and platforms I’ve been given will always be the biggest honor and privilege. I’ve always been, and hopefully always will be, sold out to worship.’
