In March when Tori Kelly performed “Help Us to Love” at the Stellar Awards, I honestly didn’t think much of it. In fact, I thought it as an anthem for the times and lauded Kirk Franklin as one of the most brilliant writers of my lifetime. I asked The Hamiltones about the collaboration and it all seemed to be a singular occurrence. 

The other day I saw Kirk and Tori Kelly again and before I could even think about it, I saw track listings…! The level of excitement that hit my life was off the charts! We’re talking about Tori Kelly, the voice behind one of the best covers of “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing” that was featured on a cartoon! She is a bonafide singer! And if you watch any television at all, you know that she can play-too!

So, what can you expect of her forthcoming project featuring…gospel music? Besides cameos by the writer and producer dancing in all the videos-Mr. Franklin, there’s a duet with Jonathan McReynolds and a feature by Lecrae you definitely want to keep your eyes and ears out for! Definitely more ‘grown up gospel‘ we’ve been craving here at SMG!

oh, & there’s an album 🙂 pre-order tonight @ midnight + get the first track ‘never alone’

Earlier this year, Snoop Dogg owned the airwaves and chats with his Bible of Love compilation. I will argue that Tori Kelly’s album (due out September 14th) is just as exciting. Crossover isn’t what it used to be, now secular artists are returning to their church roots and TK’s album is sure to be a worthy journey, home!
