8 October 2018 - Nashville, TN - Black River Christian artist and songwriter Hannah Kerr will release her new Christmas LP, Christmas Eve In Bethlehem, on October 19.

Produced by Mark Miller, Christmas Eve In Bethlehem features many holiday favorites along with two original songs co-written by Kerr - "Emmanuel," which she wrote with Andy Gullahorn and Jill Phillips, as well as the title track co-written with Jason Early. The ten-song project builds on last year's holiday EP,  Emmanuel, that was touted as "compelling" and "encouraging" and brings a jazz-infused twist coupled with Kerr's stunning vocals, a project sure to joyfully kick off your Christmas season. As part of the album's pre-sale, fans can get into the Christmas spirit early and listen to “Winter Wonderland,” which is digitally available now.

Hannah Kerr began publicly singing at the age of five in her hometown church in Buffalo, N.Y. Even though she grew up in a musical family, she never aspired to become a singer. Eventually Kerr’s family moved to Nashville, Tennessee when she was a teenager and she started approaching her musical talents with the heart of a worshipper and started songwriting and performing. One of her recordings caught the ear of Sawyer’s Brown lead singer and Casting Crowns producer, Mark Miller, and he affirmed Kerr’s calling for a music ministry.
