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.
“We were leading worship together yesterday morning and then we both walked off seperate sides of the stage. Halfway through the message I got a text saying you wouldn’t be up there with us when we go back up. I thought you had fainted and that was it. I only found out in the last few hours how serious it was…”
Crocker added: “If u read this at all, know that the Crocker’s are praying with and for you. Complete healing, complete peace, complete rest… that you would know and sense His presence like never before… “Be still, and know that I am God”…Psalm 46:10.”
Another friend of Chelsea’s, Ben Lounsbury, posted on Instagram, detailing that the singer had suffered a “ruptured aneurysm,” and subsequently underwent a “9 hr brain surgery” to deal with the brain bleed.
