About Tori Kelly and the Hiding Place CD
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.”

My Thoughts and Review: 
I am a new "fan" of Tori Kelly, just discovering her music and talent recently. I listened to the entire CD and it was just AMAZING. The R&B mixed with Pop and also some Gospel, just brings out a soulful and peaceful sound throughout the CD. Tori Kelly has a voice that just calms the soul, yet lifts it up as she sings. My favorite track from this CD was the first release "Never Alone" featuring Kirk Franklin. Take a listen to the song below via the Video.

If you are looking for a soulful and uplifting CD, the Hiding Place by Tori Kelly should go on your "must buy" list!
