Now playing on many of top digital playlists including Amazon Music’s Fresh Christian, Apple Music‘s The A-List Christian, Spotify‘s Top Christian and YouTube Music’s Christian Music Hotlist, the song is co-written by Kerr, Blake NeeSmith, Jeff Pardo and produced by Mark Miller.
“I wrote ‘Split the Sea’ in a time when I needed to be reminded that God is who He says He is,” shares Hannah Kerr. “I needed to surrender my situation to Him and know that He can do far more than I can even imagine. When we trust in the Lord’s plan as the Israelites did in Exodus 14, we just might be able to see Him part the waters in our own lives. He always makes a way for us, and ‘Split the Sea’ is my declaration of that truth.”
The new single comes on the heels of Kerr’s first full-length Christmas album, Christmas Eve in Bethlehem. The successful release yielded performances on the CBN’s 700 Club and its breakout song, “Winter Wonderland” earned a position on Spotify’s Christmas Hits playlist, which is nearing 7 million streams globally, ultimately becoming a Top 20 Hit at Christian radio. While wrapping her final year of college, Kerr is also in the studio writing and recording for an upcoming project.

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.
