Tori Kelly’s timing couldn’t be better. In advance of the release of her second album, she’s gifted fans with a live performance video for her inspirational song “Help Us to Love.” At a time when it seems that racial injustice and societal unrest is at an all-time high, the track reminds us to show compassion and love one another as Jesus loves us. The soulful plea for humanity was written and produced by gospel legend Kirk Franklin and features SoulBounce fam The Hamiltones.
The black and white visual was shot in a beautifully vast church with sweeping archways and exposed brick walls. Tori and her gifted vocal accompaniment are dressed casually as they rise from their seats and make their way from the pews, down the aisle and to the alter. They join an acoustic trio, which includes Kirk on piano. The scene, while minimal, leaves room for Tori and The Hamiltones’ captivating vocals to take center stage. Though the GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter first performed the track at the 2018 Stellar Awards in a big production, this stripped-down version further showcases her talent and the sheer power in her voice.
Take time and be inspired by Tori Kelly and The Hamiltones making a joyful noise in this “Help Us To Love” performance video. The single will be found on Hiding Place, the follow up to her 2015 debut album Unbreakable Smile, which is set to be released on September 1rth and also features gospel singer/songwriter/producer Jonathan McReynolds and Christian hip-hop star Lecrae. You can pre-order Hiding Place from a number of digital music providers now.
