Tori Kelly‘s new Kirk Franklin produced album titled Hiding Place, is the 25-year-old singer’s first gospel record.
“I didn’t really plan to put out a gospel album,” Tori admitted in a recent interview with Idolator. “To be honest, it felt like it just happened.”
She continues, “I’ve been writing for the last two years, pretty much since I got off the Unbreakable Smile Tour. I went straight into writing and throughout that process I basically felt that maybe I should throw a gospel song, just a song on the album.”
“And the reason for that is because I grew up on gospel music, I grew up singing it and a lot of what makes up gospel music is a huge influence in my own music,” Tori added. “Growing up, I thought maybe one day I’ll do a gospel project. So, I threw the idea out to my team and they were super into it.”
