Hillsong United's "Empires" CD review and giveaway

I've been patiently waiting  ok that's not true because I've actually been running out to the mailbox everyday anticipating the arrival of Hillsong United's newest album Empires that's being released on May 26th, 2015. Yippee skippee I get a copy of it to review and giveaway.  I absolutely love them, their music is amazing and always takes me to that place of worship.  I can play their song Oceans (Where Feet May Fall) over and over. Unbelievable, it's probably my all time favorite worship song EVER until I listened to the new CD EMPIRES and now I love Touch the Sky it's a song of redemption that moves me to my core.
Yesterday, Flyby Promotions gave some of us bloggers the amazing opportunity to chat with Taya Smith for an hour.  She really has a heart for worship and for choosing excellence in her music.  We were all blown away as she spoke about how it's our responsibility to be the very best that we can be in the house of God, for God.  She also said, "Don't put God in a box". Just because worship has been done one way or God has done something a certain way doesn't mean He always should and we shouldn't box Him in.  Taya also said, "The gift God has given me is my voice and it's my greatest weapon!"  Wow, our voice can be a weapon, I hadn't ever thought of it that way.  We were really inspired by everything Taya had to say and learned a lot from that fantastic opportunity.  Oh, Taya's all the way on the other side of the world from us so it was 4:00pm in Oklahoma and it was something like 7:00 am in Australia. Thanks for waking up to chat with us Taya!

OK, on to my thoughts on the newest album.  I'm sure you read that it's name is Empire's and the band is called Hillsong United.  There are 12 unbelievably amazing songs on this new CD and I love them all.  Another thing I really like is that they made the CD cover into a little book with all the words to the song in it.  I love it when they do that, sometimes I need to know what a specific word is and can't understand the singer.... yep I'm that girl that makes up lyrics if I don't know them.
Now for the giveaway, I normally do a Rafflecopter form but I just want you to comment and tell me what your favorite worship song is and who sings it.  I need that info people, if you don't leave who sings it I might not be able to find it and music rocks my world so I'll be checking all the songs out.
For an extra entry tweet something about the newest album and this giveaway using hashtags #Empires #Flyby and #Justwedeminute Giveaway ends 5/29/2015 at midnight CST
