acclaimed all over the world as a singer, songwriter worship
leader and speaker, most notably for spearheading the music
that comes from Hillsong Church. Although she has achieved numerous
gold albums and her songs are sung in many nations of the world,
her success is not the result of pursuing stardom and fame it
stands as a testimony to her lifes passion to serve God
with her musical gift.
Music has been an integral part
of Darlenes life since she was a child. Born and educated
in Brisbane, Australia, she was 10 years old when she began
performing in a weekly childrens television show, singing,
dancing and hosting segments.
As a teenager, Darlene fronted various local gospel bands in
Brisbane before she started singing on the session scene in
Sydney. This included background vocals for some of the best
in the business and recording jingles for McDonalds, Special
K, KFC and Diet Coke.
Music was always going to characterise
Darlenes life but it was her decision to serve Jesus Christ
at the age of 15 that has determined her path and destiny. For
the past 20 years, Darlene and her husband Mark have been a
vital part of the leadership team at Hillsong Church in Sydney,
which has a congregation of over 18,000.
