Last week, Tori revealed the title and cover art for her new single, “Change Your Mind,” which will be released soon. “Never Alone” (Feat. Kirk Franklin) – the single from her new passion project, Hiding Place – claimed the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart last week. Read the Billboard story HERE. Tori is nominated for two GRAMMY Awards – Best Gospel Performance/Song for “Never Alone” and Best Gospel Album for Hiding Place. 

Produced by Franklin, a 12-time GRAMMY Award winner, Hiding Place debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart, earning more first-week streams than any gospel album in history. Hiding Place also topped Billboard’s Gospel Streaming Songs and Gospel Digital Song Sales charts plus the Apple Music Christian genre chart. The collection features guest artists Lecrae, Jonathan McReynolds and The Hamiltones. 

Idolator observed, “there was always the sneaking suspicion that the 25-year-old’s voice could soar even higher, that she could open her heart even wider. That promise finally comes to fruition on Hiding Place.” VIBE noted, “Tori Kelly’s talent transcends genres.” PEOPLE said, “Tori Kelly Wants Her New Album Hiding Place to Be a Light in the Dark for Fans.” 

Kelly’s 2015 debut album Unbreakable Smile entered the Billboard 200 at No. 2 and contained the Gold-certified singles “Nobody Love,” “Should’ve Been Us” and “Hollow.” Hailed as an artist to watch by such publications as Rolling Stone, USA Today and SPIN, she was nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best New Artist category and received the Billboard Women in Music Breakthrough Artist award. Unbreakable Smile has earned more than one billion cumulative streams worldwide and sold 1.3 million adjusted albums.
