The Hillsong worship leader who was rushed to hospital last weekend has successfully come through brain surgery in what is being hailed as a miracle.

Chelsea Taylor was worship leading in Sydney, Australia when she never returned to the stage. Feeling unwell, she was taken to hospital, where she was diagnosed with a brain aneurysm.

Chelsea’s mother commented on her daughter’s health, stating, “”Chelsea pulled the life-support out last night. She is talking and trying to get out of bed. Honestly this is a miracle! The comment was said to me, the doctors aren’t saying anything! Praise our faithful God… She walked into church Sunday morning in her white sneakers! I am taking them into her room today as a declaration of faith that she is going to walk out of this hospital 100% healed in Jesus’ mighty name.”

Hillsong Worship took to instagram to update the faith community of her health.  Their post stated: “Please pray for Chelsea, one of our beloved Sydney team. This is her leading worship at church on Sunday – she was rushed to hospital shortly afterwards, has since come through a major surgery and needs our prayer. This girl is very dear to our hearts.” — @brookeligertwood ・・・#Repost @casslangton
