If you are a gospel lover and appreciate new gospel, Tori Kelly’s latest album Hiding Place is a needed sanctuary. Some may recognize her from the Nationwide commercials, or back when she used to grace YouTube with her beautiful and angelic voice. As well as being rejected from American Idol, but that goes to show you that if you have faith and believe wholeheartedly in your craft, you will make it.
Hiding Place is a collaboration of traditional hymns and R&B rhythmic choruses. Tracks like “Psalm 42" & "Soul Anthem (It Is Well)” is the representation of that. The 8-track album is impactful and has features that help create her experience, like Lecrae, The HamilTones, Jonathan McReynolds and the legendary Kirk Franklin. Track 7 “Never Alone” ft. Kirk Franklin is an uplift that we all know and love from Kirk, but Tori’s powerful voice magnifies the spirituality throughout the record. The balance brought through Hiding Place is what the world needs right now. You can stream Tori’s sophomore album on all media outlets.
