Since making her debut with 2015’s Unbreakable Smile—a widely acclaimed album that entered the Billboard 200 at No. 2—Tori Kelly has lit up the pop landscape with her breathtaking vocals and full-hearted songwriting. Over the past year, the L.A.-based artist continued to captivate with her sophomore effort Hiding Place: a passion project whose R&B-tinged take on classic gospel won Best Gospel Album at the 2019 Grammy Awards (with the chart-topping single “Never Alone” taking the Best Gospel Performance/Song prize). And though Hiding Place marks a stylistic departure from Kelly’s work in the pop world, each song shows the steadfast commitment to uncompromising artistry that carries through all her music.
To kick off 2019, Kelly is offering up a soulful new single called “Change Your Mind.” A pleading confession of an undeniable love, “Change Your Mind” finds Kelly’s voice shifting from tender to soaring to thrillingly gritty, each line delivered with pure, unbridled emotion. It’s exactly that blend of raw feeling and elegant vocal command that made Kelly a 2016 Grammy Award nominee for Best New Artist and saw her recognized as a breakthrough artist at Billboard’s 2015 Women in Music ceremony.
