Australian worship band Hillsong United is known for their stirring live performances. And that's evident in the video for their song “Even When It Hurts (Praise Song)," from their chart-topping album Empires, which was filmed in four locations -- starting in Capitol Studio LA and ending in Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia.

"Following the journey of the song through the first four times we ever played it live, from studio to arena —  there is a parallel to be found within the narrative of seasons and days, the constant unpredictability of life, and the unchanging, unfailing nature of God and His faithfulness — and what singing His praises unlocks in us,” leader and vocalist Joel Houston tells Billboard.  “In this journey, the song serves as the constant and honest confession within us, as the environment and atmosphere changes like the seasons come-and-go around us.”
