While working on the follow-up to her debut album Unbreakable Smile—a 2015 release that premiered at #2 on the Billboard 200— Tori Kelly felt compelled to include a track that honored her lifelong passion for gospel music. With the help of her manager, Scooter Braun, the L.A.-based singer/songwriter soon connected with Kirk Franklin, a 12-time Grammy Award-winning gospel artist and one of Kelly’s musical idols. “I flew to Dallas and Kirk showed me a few songs he’d written, and I fell in love with all of them,” says Kelly, a 2016 Grammy Award nominee for Best New Artist. “Next thing you know one song turned into us doing a whole album together. It just took on a life of its own.”
Today i am featuring the newest CD by Tori Kelly. Upon first look the album cover is nice and sleek looking. the album seems kind of short in my opinion, but that’s not really a deal breaker. Not really being familiar with Tori Kelly at all its sort of hard to judge it. When listening to it for the first time her voice is nice, but it just didn’t “wow” me as much as some albums by other artists have. to be perfectly honest most of it just made me zone out or push to the next song right away. nothing about her, maybe its the type of feel the songs had but it just wasn’t my thing.
i was provided a copy of this cd for free in exchange for my review, i wasn’t compensated in any way
