Nashville, TN – Black River Christian’s Hannah Kerr released her Christmas EP, Emmanuel, on October 20, which is already receiving critical acclaim. Produced by Mark Miller (Casting Crowns), the six-song project includes two original songs – “Emmanuel” co-written by Kerr, Andy Gullahorn and Jill Phillips, and “Christmas Eve in Bethlehem,” which she wrote with Jason Earley – as well as the seasonal favorites “White Christmas,” “O Come O Come Emmanuel,” “Breath of Heaven,” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.”
Available now digitally and physically, Emmanuel already has critics lauding the project as “heartfelt,” “festive” and “compelling.” A couple other reviews share:
“From start to finish, each track on Emmanuel is sung with sincerity and heart celebrating the reason for the Christmas season.” Today’s Christian Entertainment
“Hannah’s introduction into CCM in 2016…was nothing short of poignant and heartfelt. Emmanuel continues to be as heartfelt, maybe even more so…It is her fervent enthusiasm to present to us songs that make us think in terms of a kingdom mentality that I’m sure will propel her to new heights in months to come. Well done Hannah for such an encouraging and compelling EP. Already looking forward to the next one.” – 365 Days of Inspiring Media
