Tori Kelly,自然不做作的好嗓音


  現年 21 歲,來自美國加州的創作女歌手 Tori Kelly,虔誠基督徒,生長於音樂家庭,從小接觸福音並受到流行及 R&B 音樂影響,10、11 歲年紀輕輕時就已經在電視才藝秀 Star SearchAmerica's Most Talented Kids 嶄露頭角,驚艷全場。



  2010 年參加選秀節目 American Idol 美國偶像第九季,卻在 24 強前止步。她沒有因此而喪氣,反而開始學習吉他並寫歌創作,也另外在 YouTube 上發表翻唱歌曲,大獲好評,其中翻唱 Frank Ocean 單曲「Thinkin Bout You」的影片,至今已有超過一千八百萬的點閱率。



吉他自彈自唱,舒服令人陶醉







  受到關注後,Kelly 在 2012 年自行製作、獨立發行首張 EP《Handmade Songs》,之後發行公益單曲「Fill A Heart」並展開巡迴演唱,在 2013 年更接著推出第二張 EP《Foreword》,首波抒情主打「Dear No One」,清新又慵懶,高唱愛情宣言。




Lyrics 歌詞:(by 好青年 整理)

I like being independent
Not so much of an investment
No one to tell me what to do
I like being by myself
Don't gotta entertain anybody else
No one to answer to

But sometimes, I just want somebody to hold
Someone to give me their jacket when it's cold
Got that young love even when we're old
Yeah sometimes, I want someone to grab my hand
Pick me up, pull me close, be my man
I will love you till the end

So if you're out there I swear to be good to you
But I'm done lookin', for my future someone
Cause when the time is right
You'll be here, but for now
Dear no one, this is your love song

I don't really like big crowds
I tend to shut people out
I like my space, yeah
But I'd love to have a soul mate
God will give him to me someday
And I know it'll be worth the wait

So if you're out there I swear to be good to you
But I'm done lookin', for my future someone
Cause when the time is right
You'll be here, but for now
Dear no one, dear nobody, this is your love song

But sometimes, I just want somebody to hold
Someone to give me their jacket when it's cold
Got that young love even when we're old
Yeah sometimes, I want someone to grab my hand
Pick me up, pull me close, be my man
I will love you till the end

So if you're out there I swear to be good to you
But I'm done lookin', for my future someone
Cause when the time is right
You'll be here, but for now
Dear no one, dear nobody, this is your love song
Dear no one, no need to be searching
Dear no one, dear no one
Dear no one, this is your love song
