Multiple award-winning singer/songwriter, Jekalyn Carr, will spend this holiday season gracing the cover of Pandora’s Christmas Spirit mode for one week beginning December 16 and concluding on December 22, 2022. Carr will also be featured as host of the Christmas Spirit Mode on Pandora’s billboard in New York’s Times Square (Broadway between 45th and 46th Streets) for one week.
On December 10th 2022, Carr performed in New York City at the famed Carnegie Hall, in a sold-out event titled “Night Of Inspiration,” which was produced by Ray and Vivian Chew of Chew Entertainment. Carr performed “Mary Don’t You Weep,” with the legendary gospel singer, Shirley Caesar, and took part in a tribute to Richmond Smallwood singing, “Total Praise,” but the highlight of the night, was Carr performing an original piece of her own music, “It’s Yours,” with the Carnegie orchestra.
On Friday, November 4, 2022, Carr released her new holiday single titled, “Great Christmas,” which has reached #2 on the Billboard Gospel Airplay Artist Chart and #7 on the Mediabase Gospel Airplay Chart.
Carr was recently interviewed and performed her single, “Great Christmas,” for Houstons’s Click2Houston/KPRC. She was also interviewed by Fox 5 Atlanta and performed a resounding version of her single, “Great Christmas,” which will air on Christmas Day.
In 2021, Carr became the first gospel artist to be inducted into the Women’s Songwriters Hall of Fame and in 2022, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award from President Joe Biden.
