Tori Kelly to Receive 2015 Women in Music Honor, Gets Grammy Nomination

Tori Kelly will receive an award at the 2015 Women in Music Ceremony in New York City this week. She is being honored with the Breakthrough Artist of the Year award. That’s not a big surprise. Anyone who’s heard her song “Should’ve Been Us” knows Tori Kelly is someone special.

The 22-year-old from Wildomar, California also received a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist.

In addition to these two aforementioned honors, she was nominated for favorite breakout artist for the 2016 People’s Choice Awards.

Last week Tori Kelly appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and performed a new single, “Hollow.” Her a cappella touch showed off her raw talent in the song that has a strong gospel feel.

In a recent interview with Billboard magazine, Tori Kelly said she has a couple of favorite music artists she’d one day love to work with. If she keeps impressing people within the industry the way she has this year, she will likely see that dream come true.

“Jill Scott is definitely on the list. Gladys Knight has talked about me in interviews and I keep geeking out about that–I would love to do ­something with her. Also, Pink,” she said.
