Christmas is the most celebrated holiday of the year. Cultures across the globe come together with friends and family to spread love through giving, feasting, and celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Bishop Frederick and Dr. Erica Barr wish to honor and unite us all in this season of love by sharing with you a new Christmas collection of music that offers nothing short of holiday cheer. CHRISTMAS WITH THE BARRS will enhance this wonderful time of year for generations to come.
Bishop Frederick and Dr. Erica Barr are pastors of the Life Church International in Nashville, TN – a ministry that explodes beyond the church walls into the most needed areas of the city. The dynamic couple is known throughout Nashville for their selfless ministry, unstoppable approach to life and business prowess. The Barrs are active in many television and film projects and own a restaurant The Barr’s Music City Soul Food.
Their music is the nucleus of their ministry and empire. Their creative flair can be heard on previous singles “Paper”, “$2 Dollar Hot Dog, $1 Dollar Water”, and “Black Santa” featuring Derek Minor. The Barrs are now offering a full album of Christmas classics and best-loved holiday songs on a 14-track collection that every family can cherish for a lifetime.
“It’s finally Christmas again, and we are godly proud to be able to bring together this amalgamation of award-winning singers to glorify God during this Christmas season,” says Bishop Barr. “This project has crossed multiple genres of music with the Broadway theatrics of Dr. Erica Barr and our all-star cast of vocal guests. We are blessed and honored to have the soulful gospel sounds of the one and only Dr. Bobby Jones on this album as well.”
Bishop Frederick and Dr. Erica Barr have invited an all-star cast to join them on CHRISTMAS WITH THE BARRS. The album features Mark Kibble of Take 6 on “My Favorite Things”, Dr. Bobby Jones and Kyla Jade (of The Voice) unite for a churchy “Jesus What A Wonderful Child”, and Anne Taylor-Slaughter belts out a Jazzy rendition of “Go Tell It On The Mountain”.
You can watch “Go Tell It On The Mountain” official music video on YouTube. The breathtaking video, filmed in the snowy Denver, CO mountains, is the perfect picturesque backdrop for a holiday scene. Bishop and Dr. Barr enjoy the winter-wonderland while Anne sings and is cozy by the fireplace. The video producer is Danny Fuentes. Videographers are Fuentes and Antwan Freeman.
“We wanted CHRISTMAS WITH THE BARRS to be a beautifully crafted song affair that would immerse the listener into the spirit of Christmas,” says Dr. Erica Barr. “We delighted in creating music that will take them on a journey that unfolds like scenes from a theatrical play.”
CHRISTMAS WITH THE BARRS is produced by Bishop and Dr. Barr, and Lance Lucas (Jekalyn Carr, Lisa Knowles & The Brown Singers, Kevin Davidson). The album is released on The Barr’s Tiger Records and is available now on all digital outlets.
