Tori Kelly's been garnering critical and commercial success by mixing big time vocals with her throwback-inspired pop on her debut full-length Unbreakable Smile. And the quickly rising star isn't stopping, with an upcoming re-release of the LP this fall. The forthcoming record is led by what sounds like an instant smash, versus the slow-building success of past singles "Nobody Love" and "Should've Been Us."
"Hollow" opens like a ballad with Tori's hushed vocals over gorgeous piano chords. But the chorus soon hits with booming stomps and claps as Tori's vocals soar, setting a very gospel-like feel for the rest of the tune. It's extremely accessible, fresh and doesn't feel late to the gospel-pop trend that surged in 2013 via OneRepublic's "Counting Stars," Ella Henderson's "Ghost" and the Fray's "Love Don't Die"
Look out for Tori's Unbreakable Smile re-release to hit this fall (with hopefully even more soul-stirring tunes) along with what's sure to be another show-stopping vocal moment when she duets with Andrea Bocelli at the 2015 MTV EMAs on Sunday.
