7 Amazing Covers by Tori Kelly That'll Make You a Fan ...

By Vanessa

There are way too many jaw-dropping covers by Tori Kelly! She tried out for American Idol, didn’t make it, but became a YouTube sensation. After getting the attention of Scooter Braun (Justin Bieber’s manager), she’s been getting the attention of everyone else. She even opened up for Ed Sheeran at his most recent NY date at Madison Square Garden. Impressive, huh? Check out these covers by Tori Kelly and let me know which one is your favorite!

1 "Suit & Tie" by Justin Timberlake

I mean, really?! The runs in this cover are everything! She uploaded this cover earlier last year in March and got a whopping 8 million views. Very well deserved, obviously. This is one of my favorite covers by Tori Kelly but by no means the best. She impresses me every time she opens her mouth! The list will just keep getting better and better.

2 "Roar" by Katy Perry

This cover is especially fun to watch because Scott Hoying (from Pentatonix) is in it! Their rendition is super mellow yet still powerful. Both have such sweet, smooth vocals. The duo of friends uploaded this cover back in September. They have over a million views! I’m loving this version of Katy’s song.

3 "Thinkin Bout You" by Frank Ocean

I think this is the cover that really put Tori on our radar. She posted this cover of Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You” back in 2012 and the video went viral. She got over 17 million views. How crazy is that?! This was really the perfect song for Kelly to show off her amazing high notes. Oh and the beatboxing is awesome too!

4 "Best Thing I Never Had" by Beyonce

It’s always challenging for anyone to take on a Beyonce song. Who could ever live up to it? Well, Tori definitely can. Her cover of this song got over four million views. She hits every note flawlessly. It’s so effortless for her! I’m amazed.

5 "Only Girl (in the World)" by Rihanna

Aw! Throwback video of Tori Kelly. She uploaded this video back in 2010 and the video is nearing two million views. I absolutely love acoustic versions of big pop songs because it’s a totally different vibe. Tori made this song her own and I love it!

6 "PYT (Pretty Young Thing)" by Michael Jackson

This is one of my favorite Tori covers simply because it’s an MJ song. I always get so iffy watching Michael Jackson covers because people either try to be just like him, or stray way too far from his style. Tori was able to find the perfect balance! She stayed true to the sound of the song but still made it her own. P.S. That run that she does near the end of the song is perfection.

7 "Someone like You" by Adele

I love this rendition of Adele’s song! Her voice is so sweet and soft. Like always, she hits every note perfectly. You can see how much she loses herself in the song. Oh and Luke Edgemon’s voice sounds awesome, too! I'm so obsessed.

There you have it! These are some incredible covers that’ll definitely turn you into a Tori fan if you weren’t already. Which cover was your favorite? Which cover do you think should've made the list?
