GRAMMY®-nominated artist Tori Kelly will kick off a North American headline tour on October 18 at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA. The run is in support of her new project, Hiding Place, a powerful collection of R&B infused gospel songs that was produced by 12-time GRAMMY® Award winner Kirk Franklin.

In addition to playing such venues as Warner Theatre in Washington DC (October 28) and Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium (November 8), Tori and her band will perform at several historic houses of worship, including New York City’s Riverside Church (October 30) and the Cathedral Sanctuary at Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles (November 16 & 17). Tickets go on sale Friday, September 14. See below for itinerary or visit

Capitol Records will release Hiding Place on September 14. The passion project follows Tori’s2015 album Unbreakable Smile, which Idolator recently hailed as “one of the better debut albums in recent memory.” It entered the Billboard 200 at No. 2 and contained the Gold-certified singles “Nobody Love,” “Should’ve Been Us” and “Hollow.”

Tori recorded Hiding Place primarily at Kirk Franklin’s studio just outside Dallas. Half of the songs were penned solely by Franklin, while the remaining tracks came from a collaboration between the two artists – the first time that Franklin had ever co-written in a decades-long career that’s seen his songs performed by legends like Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston.

Fans who pre-order / pre-save Hiding Place in digital format will instantly receive the first single, “Never Alone” (feat. Kirk Franklin,) and “Help Us To Love featuring The Hamiltones,official background vocalists for GRAMMY winner Anthony Hamilton.
