Tori Kelly first caught the public eye as a child, showcasing her talent on various TV competition series. She later made her mark in the industry through soulful acoustic covers on YouTube and a stint on American Idol in 2010.

In 2015, Kelly released her debut album, “Unbreakable Smile,” which proved to be a success. The album featured hits like “Nobody Love” and “Should’ve Been Us,” solidifying her position in the music world.
