On her new album Hiding Place, L.A.-based singer/songwriter Tori Kelly honors her deepest musical passion and delivers an R&B-infused, infectiously melodic take on classic gospel. The follow-up to her full-length debut Unbreakable Smile—a 2015 release that premiered at #2 on the Billboard 200—Hiding Place finds the co-star of the 2016 feature film Sing teaming up with 12-time Grammy Award-winning gospel legend Kirk Franklin. With a lush yet simply adorned sound beautifully suited to Kelly’s incomparable voice, the Franklin-produced album includes such standouts as the slow-burning, harmony-infused lead single “Help Us to Love” and the powerfully radiant, full-choir-driven “Soul’s Anthem.”
As she embraces gospel’s boundless intensity and pushes her vocal performance like never before, Hiding Place offers up what Franklin refers to as “hope-pop”—a classification that fully resonates with Kelly. “One of the things I want for this album is for people to feel uplifted and encouraged when they listen,” says the 2016 Grammy Award nominee for Best New Artist, who’s now at work on her next pop album. “I want them to know that, no matter what they’re going through, there’s a God who loves them so much and so unconditionally, and there’s always a reason to feel hope. That’s what I really believe in, and I want everyone out there to hear my heart.”2016 Best New Artist GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter and producer Tori Kelly has been named as an "Artist to Watch" by Rolling Stone, USA Today and Spin. The California native sold out her US tour in support of her debut album, Unbreakable Smile, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and includes the hits "Nobody Love" and "Should've Been Us." Unbreakable Smile (Capitol Records) was re-issued with two additional tracks: single, "Hollow," which topped the Top 25 at Pop radio and climbed on the Rhythmic charts, and a brand new song entitled "Something Beautiful." Kelly starred as Meena, in the 2016 animated movie "Sing" alongside Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane and Scarlett Johansson. She is currently in the studio working on her second album.
