Hannah Kerr began publicly singing at the age of five in her hometown church in Buffalo, N.Y. Even though she grew up in a musical family, she never aspired to become a singer. Eventually Kerr's family moved to Nashville, Tennessee when she was a teenager and she started approaching her musical talents with the heart of a worshipper and started songwriting and performing. One of her recordings caught the ear of Sawyer's Brown lead singer and Casting Crowns producer, Mark Miller, and he affirmed Kerr's calling for a music ministry. She became the flagship artist for Black River Christian. For more information, please visitHannahKerrMusic.com, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
