The Australia-based Christian act's Taya Smith and Joel Houston also share how they landed director Michael John Warren, known for his work with Jay Z and Nicki Minaj

Australia-based Christian band Hillsong has sold more than 16 million albums, its song "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)" spent almost a year straight atop of Billboard's Christian music chart for 45 straight weeks, and the group's music is so popular that it's estimated on any given Sunday, more than 50 million churchgoers around the world are singing one of Hillsong's songs. We got your attention? Good.

The members are letting people into their world with their upcoming music documentary Let Hope Rise, which hits theaters today, Sept. 16. Hillsong members Taya Smith and Joel Houston stopped by Fuse HQ to share more about the doc and how it explores "how God works with people in the year 2016."

Watch above for the inspiration and meaning behind the documentary, as well how they landed Michael John Warren (known for his work on film projects like Jay-Z: Fade to Black and Nicki Minaj: My Time Now) as a director.
