Singer is nominated for two GRAMMY Awards
GRAMMY nominee Tori Kelly will kick off The Acoustic Sessions on February 25th at the Fox Theatre in Tucson. The North American headline tour will include a February 28th concert at the historic Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles and an April 3rd show at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn. See below for itinerary.
Fan club pre-sales are underway. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, January 25th at 10 am local time. The stripped-down acoustic excursion follows Kelly’s fall 2018 Hiding Place Tour, which included sold-out shows in such cities as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington, DC, Atlanta and Dallas.
Kelly will also release her new single “Change Your Mind” to radio 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. Kelly 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.
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.
