Hannah Kerr impacts radio with new single 'Split the Sea'


Wed, Jan 23rd 2019 05:40 pm

Black River Christian artist/songwriter Hannah Kerr’s newest single, "Split the Sea," is at Christian radio now after being one of the most added singles on add date. "Split the Sea" can be heard on many stations nationwide. In addition, the lyric video exclusively debuted at CBN online.

Now playing on many of top digital playlists, including Amazon Music's Fresh Christian, Apple Music's The A-List Christian, Spotify's Top Christian and YouTube Music's Christian Music Hotlist, the song is co-written by Kerr, Blake NeeSmith, Jeff Pardo and produced by Mark Miller.

“I wrote 'Split the Sea' in a time when I needed to be reminded that God is who he says he is," Kerr shared. "I needed to surrender my situation to him and know that he can do far more than I can even imagine. When we trust in the Lord’s plan as the Israelites did in Exodus 14, we just might be able to see him part the waters in our own lives. He always makes a way for us, and 'Split the Sea' is my declaration of that truth.”

The new single comes on the heels of Kerr’s first full-length Christmas album, “Christmas Eve in Bethlehem.” The successful release yielded performances on the CBN's “700 Club,” while its breakout song, “Winter Wonderland” earned a position on Spotify’s Christmas Hits playlist (nearing 7 million streams globally, ultimately becoming a top 20 hit at Christian radio).

While wrapping her final year of college, Kerr is also in the studio writing and recording for an upcoming project.

About Hannah Kerr

Kerr began touring in 2016 and shared the stage with major Christian artists including Casting Crowns, Matt Maher, Building 429, Jonny Diaz, Matt Hammitt, as well as for KING & COUNTRY, Newsboys and Kari Jobe. Her debut album, “Overflow,” which was produced by Sawyer Brown’s lead singer and Casting Crowns’ producer Miller, has earned more than 20 million streams and features the top 5 hit co-written by Kerr and recorded by Matt Maher, “Your Love Defends Me”; her top 15 radio hit, “Warrior”; and the top 25 hit "Radiate." Kerr was recently given the Most Performed Song Award at the 2018 ASCAP Christian Awards for "Your Love Defends Me.”

Kerr has been named the 1st Ambassador for Youth For Tomorrow’s Jodi McQueen Therapeutic Music & Arts Center and “YFT Heart Beats” campaign.

Kerr began publicly singing at the age of 5 in her hometown church in Buffalo. Even though she grew up in a musical family, she never aspired to become a singer. Eventually, Kerr’s family moved to Nashville when she was a teenager. She started approaching her musical talents with the heart of a worshipper, and began songwriting and performing. One of her recordings caught Miller’s ear, and he affirmed her calling for a music ministry.
