Kerrie Roberts (born January 1, 1985)[1] is an American contemporary Christian artist. She has released two albums and one EP under Reunion Records.[2] She has also released a standalone single in 2005.[2] Several songs from her self-titled major label debut have charted on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart including the Top Ten hit "No Matter What".

Early life[edit]

Kerrie Roberts grew up as a daughter to a pastor and a church choir director.[3] It is because of this that Roberts spent a lot of time in the church during her childhood. Roberts began performing music at the age of 5, singing in her mom's church choir.[3] According to her YouTube autobiography, she was so small that she had to stand on a milk crate in order for the congregation to see her.[3] This experience eventually led to her playing piano and leading worship music in the church.[4] Roberts' music revolved solely around her parents' church until high school, at which point she began writing her own songs.[4] This writing continued while she attended college at the University of Miami; she graduated with a degree in studio music and jazz vocal.[5]

Music career[edit]

After college, Roberts began her music career. Her first release was a standalone single called "It Is Well with Me".[2] The one-track single was released independently in September 2005.[6]

She released her album Kerrie Roberts and it peaked on the Billboard magazine's Christian Albums chart at No. 27.[7] Three singles from the album charted on Billboard's Hot Christian Songs chart; "No Matter What" hit No. 9, "Outcast" at No. 29, and "Take You Away" at No. 28.[8]

A new single "Rescue Me (How The Story Ends)" was used in promos for the ABC drama Once Upon a Time, which began airing in the U.S on Sunday October 23, 2011.[citation needed]

On April 2, 2013, Roberts released her second full-length recording: Time for the Show.[9]

The next year, on December 16, 2014, she released an EP: My Heart's Lifted.[10]

On March 17, 2017, Roberts released her first full-length recording in four years: Boundless.[11]
