Brooke Fraser

One of the highlights of “This Is Our God,” the seventeenth contemporary worship album from Hillsong Church, would have to be “You’ll Come” by Brooke Fraser. In 2008 it was recorded live in front of over 10,000 worshippers and opened at No. 2 Top 50 Albums in Australia.

New Zealand native Fraser based her song on Hosea 6:1-3, a story of those who strayed far from the Lord. Then in their despair resolve to wait on the Lord and his loving kindness, confident that He will indeed come and restore them. “You’ll Come” is the kind of uplifting praise and worship song that easily resonates with believers… worth hearing this Christmas.

Fraser doesn’t just sing about her faith. In 2006, she and her husband adopted a Rwanda orphan named Albertine, about whom she wrote one of her most popular songs. “Albertine,” the same titled album, went double platinum in 2006. In between concerts she still devotes much of her time to fund-raising for African children, displaced by genocide.
