About Tori Kelly

Tori Kelly started her music career on YouTube before eventually trying out for FOX’s American Idol. After she was eliminated from the show, she went on to write, sing, and produce her first EP Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly. Scooter Braun, the manager responsible for finding Justin Bieber on YouTube, scouted Tori and brought her to Capitol Records. Her single “Nobody Love" became her first Billboard 100 hit, and her 2015 MTV VMA performance of “Should’ve Been Us" caused a lot of Twitter buzz, making people ask: who is Tori Kelly? A multi-instrumentalist, Tori was given the “Breakthrough" Award at Billboard’s Women in Music 2015
