Vocal Coach Reacts To Tori Kelly | Ariana Grande | Right There | Live

By December 26, 2019No Comments

I’m a fan of Tori Kelly’s soulful style and really appreciate how hard she has worked to develop her craft.

Tori’s been at it a long time having started singing at the age of 3. She later learned to play the drums at 12 and took up piano and guitar at 15.

When she was 11 years old she competed on America’s Most Talented Kids and won. 3 years later, Tori opened a YouTube account and started sharing videos of herself covering popular songs eventually growing her following to over a million subscribers.

At 18 she competed on American Idol making it to the semi-finals before being sent off as Simon Cowell called her voice “annoying”. Fortunately Tori didn’t let that stop her and she eventually got a record deal with Capitol Records.

Her debut album made it to number two on the Billboard 200 chart and she was nominated for a Grammy for Best New Artist. Her second album made it to number 35 on the Billboard 200 and she went on to win two Grammys for it.

For today’s performance she’ll be singing “Right There” and Ariana Grande joins her on stage. I hope you all enjoy the video and please let me know what you thought!

Active KTVA Students in The KTVA Singers Forum:

“It’s awesome. The private sections of the forum are worth the price of admission alone. I struggled with 2 different tertiary (university Level) level teachers (6 months each about 8 years ago) telling me my voice just wouldn’t be able to do what i wanted to be able to do and even if it could, the material i wanted to be able to sing would be too ‘Dangerous.’ Absolute rubbish. If you do the work thats laid out in this course, you are golden, I started in March Last year struggling to hit the E4 note in ‘Under the Bridge’ chorus now I can sing this stuff:
Honestly man, you are not going to find a bad review here. The course and this forum completely demystifies every single aspect of great singing. Just be prepared to do the work.”
