Tori Kelly & Ed Sheeran Are Collaborators & Friends, & We Can't Wait To Hear What They Have In Store
There's no question that YouTube star and singer-songwriter Tori Kelly has had a big couple of years. In the midst of breaking out into mainstream fame, Kelly has had the chance to collaborate with a lot of big name celebrities. One of the most important collaborators would have to be Ed Sheeran. In an interview with She Knows, Kelly said that opening for Sheeran at his show in Madison Square Garden in New York City was one of her biggest moments that she's had so far in her newfound stardom. She said,
It seems like meeting and befriending Sheeran has been one of the most beneficial things that has happened for Kelly's career. After all, it's clear that collaborating with Sheeran has provided her with inspiration and the motivation to keep working toward reaching her dreams and goals. It also probably helped expose her to a much wider fan base. After all, that Ed Sheeran show in NYC sold out in three minutes, so it's no surprise that linking yourself to such a popular and in-demand name could do wonderful things for your career.
But their collaboration together isn't all work. Sheeran and Kelly consider each other close friends and make time to have fun together as well as work.
Along with getting the chance to perform at Madison Square Garden, one of the most famous performance spaces in the world, Kelly also had a chance to record music with Sheeran in the studio. The two have recorded "special" duets together that they have discussed releasing in the form of a movie or some sort of soundtrack. As seen from the clip from Kelly's Instagram below, the two seemed to have a great time hanging out together even when they weren't working on their sure-to-be hits.
Kelly also has had nothing but kind words to say about Sheeran, showing her admiration and respect for him in response to his helpfulness and supportiveness. According to Capital FM, she said,
How sweet! Hopefully we'll get to see more from the two friends' work together soon.
