Tori Kelly sat down with Billboard News’ Rania Aniftos and opened up about her hospitalization, getting back on the road for her tour, experimenting with new sounds and styles on self-titled EP Tori and more!

Tori Kelly:
“I could be your shelter.” Like, the crowd always has to sing that line. Hey, I’m Tori Kelly, and you’re watching Billboard News.

Rania Aniftos:
I’m Rania Aniftos with Billboard News, and I’m so excited to be here with the super talented, the super beautiful Tori Kelly.

First, how are you feeling after your hospitalization?

Tori Kelly:
I’m feeling good. I’m actually feeling really good. Totally caught me off guard. It was a scary few days, but I’m so happy that I had, like, a really good support system around me. I was mind blown by just all the love and support that I got during that time.

Rania Aniftos:
Beyond fans, Beyoncé sent you flowers.

Tori Kelly:
Beyoncé, yeah, I got a lot of flowers. But when Beyoncé’s flowers showed up it was like, “Oh, yeah, those are obviously from Beyoncé.” They were massive.

Rania Aniftos:
I mean, healing of the body and soul, though.

Tori Kelly:
Seriously yeah, I was like, “I’m good now. I’m good, yeah.”

Rania Aniftos:
I mean, but then you really did get back up and you went right on tour, basically.

Tori Kelly:
It is honestly a dream come true. I was looking forward to this tour for a while. And then I think now with everything that’s happened health wise too, I’m just even more grateful. And it feels even like more emotional being on stage now, and just not wanting to take a single second for granted.
