19 October 2018 - Nashville, TN - Today is the day that Black River Christian artist and songwriter Hannah Kerr releases her new Christmas LP, Christmas Eve In Bethlehem. 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 Earley. 

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. 

Kerr will share many of the songs from Christmas Eve In Bethlehem when she joins Casting Crowns on their "It’s Finally Christmas Tour," which kicks off on November 29th in Portland, OR.

Earlier this week in Nashville, ASCAP held their annual 2018 ASCAP Christian Awards where Kerr was awarded a "Most Performed Song Award" for "Your Love Defends Me," the Top 5 hit co-written by Kerr and recorded by Matt Maher.

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.
