Black River Christian artist Hannah Kerr has signed with Curb | Word Entertainment.
Kerr released her Top 30 hit “Same God” in the spring of 2021 and followed it up with “Grave” last fall. She has released two full-length albums and two EPs that have garnered more than 115 million total streams, including her recent release, Listen More, entirely co-written by Kerr, which features the Top 20 radio hit “Split The Sea.”
Her 2016 debut, Overflow, which earned her more than 40 million streams, featured her Top 15 hit “Warrior,” as well as her version of Matt Maher‘s Top 5 hit “Your Love Defends Me.” The song propelled her to win the award for Most Played Song at the 2018 ASCAP Christian Awards.
“We welcome Hannah to the Curb | Word family,” says Mike Curb, Chairman of Curb | Word Entertainment. “Black River has done a tremendous job establishing Hannah, and we look forward to building on that success in the future.”
“When we created Black River Christian, we did so with a servant’s heart,” adds Gordon Kerr, Black River Entertainment President and CEO. “Our goal was to create music that is mission minded and to follow wherever God leads us. We’ve heard countless testimonies over the years from people whose lives have been touched by this ministry. With this next step, we know there is potential to reach countless more lives with her ministry.”
