Taylor, who is a member of the worship team at Hillsong’s flagship “Hills” campus in Sydney, Australia, appeared to become unwell after leading worship on Sunday, before being rushed to hospital in critical condition.


“I am actually speechless right now,” wrote Hillsong United member Matty Crocker on Instagram, reports FaithWire.

“We were leading worship together yesterday morning and then we both walked off seperate sides of the stage.

I only found out in the last few hours how serious it was…”
