Recently, I got the opportunity to review Tori Kelly’s new album Hiding Places. I absolutely love the title because it already shows she is ready for transparency. It’s a reminder that God wants to go into those hidden places of the heart to expose the things that are not like him.

On this album she collaborates with Kirk Franklin (who also co-wrote), Hamiltones to bring you a soulful and jazzy album about God’s love. May favorite song is Psalm 42:

there’s a quiet place that gives me peace when I’m alone with you
there’s a hiding place
your Spirit’s always there when I’m confused
only you can purify
all this world won’t ever satisfy
my heart it cries
as the deer pants for the water
so my foul, needs you Lord
we’re thirsty God you’re the living water
and my soul, needs you Lord
I need you Lord, need you Lord
I’m a stranger here, thirsty cause I know it’s not my home
like a desert here, I need your living Word for these dry bones
Jesus fill us up again
with your presence flowing deep within
new life begins
quench our hearts
& fill this space with
heaven like a flood
Holy One rain
down on us with
Your consuming love

This L.A.-based singer/songwriter honors her deepest musical passion and delivers an R&B infused, infectiously melodic take on classic gospel album. She has teamed up with Kirk Franklin on this one, and the first single features him. Tori Kelly was the 2016 Grammy Award nominee for Best New Artist.

Tori doesn’t fail to capture us with her beautiful vocals. Kirk Franklin does a great job at co-writing these songs my only problem is that I wanted to hear more.

You won’t be disappointed you can purchase her songs here
