Hiding Place - Review & Giveaway

I was recently invited to review the new CD from Tori Kelly. I had not heard of her, but along with the invite to review her CD was a link to her single with Kirk Franklin - Never Alone and it is excellent, so I agreed to do the review.

Hiding Place
By - Tori Kelly
Schoolboy Records & Capitol Records

Favorite Features -
  • Strong clear voice with beautiful harmonies
  • Solid lyrics mostly by Kirk Franklin and Tori Kelly
  • Tori is joined by Lacrae, The HamilTones, Jonathan McReynolds and Kirk Franklin on some of the songs - great pairings
Universal Music Group says; "With its R&B infused, deeply melodic take on classic gospel, Hiding Place offers up what Franklin refers to as 'hope-hop'. Tori Kelly was the 2016 Grammy Award nominee for Best New Artist."

I found this CD to be encouraging and fun at the same time. The music has "spunk" and leaves you wanting to sing along. I especially like how each song truly has a message - one which is very needed in our world today.

I'm very happy to say, not only did flybypromotions send me one Hiding Place Cd for review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only). If you are over the age of 18, would like to be in this drawing on September 18, 2018, please comment below to share one of your favorite singers/groups you most enjoyed listening to when you were young - for me it was Petra.
