Tori Kelly and Andrea Bocelli sing “The Prayer” in Seattle

J-P Mauro - published on 07/31/17

Kelly is a great substitute for Celine Dion

Tori Kelly is an American singer-songwriter and producer. She got her start at the age of 14, making music videos on Youtube. When she was 16 she auditioned for American Idol, where she failed to reach the top 24.

She continued to pursue her musical career and released her first EP in 2012. The EP drew attention from Capitol Records, with whom she signed the following year.

She has released one full-length album with Capitol Records, Unbreakable Smile, in 2015. She was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Artist at the 58th Grammy Awards.

Kelly was invited by Andrea Bocelli to sing “The Prayer” with him in Seattle. “The Prayer” was made famous by Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion in 1999.
