Tori Kelly
Introduces Millions of Followers to Her Christian Roots With New Album
~ By Jeannie Law, Christian Post ~

  Grammy-nominated artist Tori Kelly is introducing her millions of pop fans to her Christian faith with her new album, Hiding Place, co-written with Gospel pioneer Kirk Franklin.

  Kelly told ABC News Radio in a recent interview that it was a dream come true being able to work with one of her musical heroes.

  "I grew up on gospel music, so the fact that a legend like Kirk Franklin would take me under his wing was just a dream come true," she said.

  The news station reported that Kelly and Franklin were initially scheduled to do one song together, but upon getting together to record, their collaboration turned into an entire gospel album. Hiding Place marks the first time in Franklin's career that he co-wrote an album with someone. Kelly wrote one half of the record while the 12-time Grammy-winning gospel star co-wrote the other half.

  A video of their single together, Never Alone, has already accumulated millions of views. In it, the artist is seen singing her song of hope while in a church and Franklin joins her at the end with his signature melodic preaching and iconic dance moves.

  "I've never seen anyone that's a monster behind the microphone like Tori Kelly ... It set the bar higher for my whole career. A lot of artists out there will rely on Auto-Tune or studio tricks, but there's no button you can push for emotion, and there's no button for skill," Franklin said to ABC News Radio. "Tori is excellent in everything she does, because she's a real, pure artist."

  Some of Kelly's three million Instagram followers are showing their support by providing reaction videos of Never Alone on social media.

  The song has already achieved the rare feat of showing up on both of Billboard's Contemporary Christian and Gospel Music charts. It entered the Gospel chart at #2 and the CCM chart at #18.
  Alone marks Kelly's second Hot Gospel Songs appearance and second top 10. Help Us to Love, featuring the HamilTones, was the first track to preview her new album. It debuted and peaked at No. 10 on the April 14-dated chart (and re-enters at No. 15 this week for its first appearance since May).

  She first entered on the 25th anniversary edition of Amy Grant's Baby Baby (a duet with Grant) which debuted and peaked at No. 8 in 2016. Featured on Lecrae's I'll Find You, she led for nine weeks in 2017.

  The title of her album, Hiding Place, is a term found in the book of Psalms 32, which says: "You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with songs of deliverance."

  "That always stuck with me: this idea of God being a place of safety, a place where you can hide from all the crazy things that this world can throw at us. I want people to feel uplifted and encouraged when they listen," Kelly added.

  Hiding Place features the songs Masterpiece featuring Atlanta's Lecrae and Just As Sure with gospel powerhouse Jonathan McReynolds.

  Kelly openly shared about her Christian faith in April of this year at Pastor Greg Laurie's Harvest Christian Fellowship Church in Riverside, California. Laurie told his church that the songstress believes in Jesus Christ and was raised in the church. He shared that her mother even came to Christ at one of his Harvest services in Riverside.

  "I was 9 when I started singing in church. So church was always a big part of my life, Jesus was always a big part of my life!" Kelly stated in a video clip shared by Laurie.

  "There's time that I'd look back and say, 'Was this just a part of my childhood or did I really believe, you know?'" she confessed. "Our walks can be up and down and it's a whole journey."

  However, Kelly described a time at the tender age of five when she knew her faith was real to her. While out with her aunt, the singer was told she had to look both ways before crossing the street and her response stunned her relative but also solidified her faith in her eyes.

  "'It's fine, I'll just go to Heaven if I die,'" Kelly admitted that she told her aunt.

  The mainstream phenomenon who reached number one on iTunes with her Grammy-nominated album, Unbreakable Smile, has also shared her Christianity during impromptu worship performances at her concerts.

  A video of Kelly singing Hillsong United's Oceans during her 2015 New York concert surfaced and garnered the support of many in the Christian community (watch the video HERE).
  Tori was recently featured on Jimmy Fallon's "Tonight Show" as a musical guest with Chris Lane to perform their Country Music hit, Take Back Home Girl.

'The Most Special Kind of Love': Tori Kelly Downloads on Godly Marriage and Her New Gospel Album

By Emily Jones - CBN.com

 Performing artist Tori Kelly tied the knot this year and recently shared with her Instagram followers how a God-centered marriage has literally changed her life.

  "Marriage is like having a mirror in front of you constantly. The other person is seeing all of your flaws & insecurities come out in ways that even surprise yourself. With that can come a lot of trials & a lot of tears; but hidden in those hard times, there can be so much beauty," she wrote. "When you can reflect grace & forgiveness back at each other, it is the most special kind of love. The kind that is patient. The kind that doesn't insist on its own way. The kind that is not easily angered. The kind that keeps no record of wrongs. The kind that always protects, always trusts, & always hopes. The kind that ALWAYS perseveres. (1 cor. 13:4-7)."

  She ended the post with a special message for her husband.

  "I've never learned so much about myself, & at the same time, never realized how much I have yet to learn. But whether we're on the highest mountaintop or in the deepest valley, I'm so glad I get to do life with you & figure it out together. Here's to a new adventure every day," Kelly added.

  The singer married Andre Murillo in late May this year. She told fans then that being married is "a lot like being loved by God."

  Kelly has always been open about her faith in Christ.

  "My faith is everything to me," she said in an interview with Life.Church's youth ministry. "Music has always been a part of me and my faith has always been a part of me. So, for me it's been that daily, 'Okay let me remind myself again that Jesus is number one. Let me remind myself again what all of this is for,'" she explained.

  The newlywed has also been working on a new album titled Hiding Place which comes out September 14. She collaborated with award-winning artist Kirk Franklin to record a gospel song in the album.

  "I flew out to Dallas and Kirk showed me a few songs he'd written, and I fell in love with all of them," Kelly told Capitol Records. "Next thing you know, one song turned into us doing a whole project together. I grew up on gospel music, so the fact that a legend like Kirk Franklin would take me under his wing was just a dream come true."

  She said the title of the album comes from Psalm 32:7 "You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with songs of deliverance."

  "That always stuck with me: this idea of God being a place of safety, a place where you can hide from all the crazy things that this world can throw at us," Kelly explained. "I want people to feel uplifted and encouraged when they listen. 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, even when you're in a dark place. That's what I really believe in, and I want everyone out there to hear my heart."
