A new song by multi-GRAMMY award winner, songwriter, and producer, Tori Kelly (who just earned her fourth Grammy nomination for her album, A Tori Kelly Christmas), “North Star,” is also released as a single today. The film, which picks up after the end of Season 2, will air on the Roku Channel on December 3 in the U.S., Canada and the UK (a Roku device is not required).
On her first holiday without her father, Zoey wants to create a magical Christmas for her family just like the ones Mitch used to do. On her first holiday without her father, Zoey wants to create a magical Christmas for her family just like the ones Mitch used to do.
Says Tori Kelly: “Music and the holidays have always just effortlessly gone together. I really resonated with the message of “North Star”, missing a loved one during the excitement and happiness of the Holiday season, but also being reminded that their love is never really far away. I can’t wait to share this incredible song with the world.”
Since making her debut with 2015’s Unbreakable Smile—a widely acclaimed album that entered the Billboard 200 at No. 2—Tori Kelly has lit up the music landscape with her breathtaking vocals and full-hearted songwriting. Tori received a 2022 GRAMMY nomination for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, was nominated for Best New Artist at the 58th annual Grammy Awards, and took home two prizes at the 2019 Grammy Awards: Best Gospel Album and Best Gospel Performance/Song (for her hit single “Never Alone”) off her 2018 passion project Hiding Place.
The L.A.-based artist continues to showcase her genre less abilities collaborating with artists such as Jon Batiste, Ed Sheeran, Dan + Shay, Chris Lane, James Bay, Illenium, Lecrae, Brasstracks, and more. In late spring, she launched a popular Instagram Live series dubbed "QuaranTEA with Tori" featuring special guests like Demi Lovato, JoJo, and Alessia Cara. She’s lent her voice to the 2015 signature song campaign for Pepsi, and 2018’s Nationwide commercials. Her voice gives itself effortlessly to the big screen appearing on soundtracks for 2021’s Dear Evan Hansen, The Giver, and Blade Runner: Black Lotus on Adult Swim.
A force of nature truly singular in today’s pop world with 4 full length studio albums under her belt, 2015’s Unbreakable Smile, Hiding Place (2018), Inspired By True Events (2019), and 2020’s critically acclaimed A Tori Kelly Christmas. Tori can now add author to her already impressive resume as she releases her first children’s picture book, The Curly Girl Blues early 2022. Tori will also be reprising her role this winter as Meena in the highly anticipated forthcoming sequel to the 2016 animated movie Sing.
