Earlier this week, Black River Christian artist/songwriter Hannah Kerr debuted a brand-new arrangement and music video for her Top 20 radio single “Split the Sea” on CCM Magazine. Kerr teamed up with award-winning composer David Hamilton (Boccelli, Josh Groban) along with a string quartet for the new version.
“I had the dream to record this song in a more intimate and simple way, and David Hamilton brought that dream to life by creating this beautiful arrangement of the song,” shares Kerr. “The piano and strings feel so worshipful and reverent, and the video’s woodsy setting flooded with light fit the music and the message so well too.”
Kerr’s “Split the Sea” has been heard on radio stations across the country including KTIS Minneapolis, WCVO Columbus, WCSG Grand Rapids (Original Mix) as well as on KLOVE, KLJY St. Louis, WAWZ New York, WAFJ August, GA, KBNJ Corpus Christi and KJNW Kansas City (Pop Mix). The song also has 3 million streams with her overall 35 + million streams.
This fall, Kerr is set to join Jordan Feliz’s on his Faith Tour with special guests I AM THEY. Dates are currently being announced – stay tuned to her social media for cities!
