Singer-songwriter Hannah Kerr on Monday announced the release of her sophomore Christmas album, Christmas Eve In Bethlehem, releasing on Oct. 19 on Black River Christian. The ten-track project is produced by Mark Miller and 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.
Christmas Eve In Bethlehem builds on Kerr's 2017 holiday EP, Emmanuel, which was touted as "compelling" and "encouraging," and brings a jazz-infused twist, coupled with Kerr's stunning vocals. This Christmas season, Kerr is also joining Casting Crowns on their "It's Finally Christmas Tour," with dates listed at the end of this article.
Christmas Eve In Bethlehem is available for pre-save and pre-order everywhere now, with links available here. 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.
