Victoria Loren Kelly; better known as Tori Kelly is a 23 years old American singer, songwriter and record producer. Just as some other young artist, Kelly gained recognition after posting a cover of Frank Ocean’s “Thinking Bout You” on YouTube. Since she was a kid, she had the opportunity to appreciate and create music with her parents, because her dad was a singer and bassist and her mom played piano and saxophone. At the age of 16, Kelly started working on her own music which lead her to produce, write, and mix her first EP as an independent artist called Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly.
