Christian Singer Tori Kelly Slays Her Performance on THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT

By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor

Christian Grammy-winning artist Tori Kelly performed a heart-wrenching personal song on Catholic late-night host Stephen Colbert’s CBS talk show, THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT, earlier this week.

The performance may have surprised some Christians, as Colbert is known for his political satire and comedy. While their heart for discernment is in the right place, it’s exciting to see God-fearing talent like Kelly, gain a foothold onto his program. Colbert faithfully teaches Sunday School.

Kelly’s new album “Inspired by True Events” dropped on August 9, 2019.

Kelly shared about her heart for her new music via Instagram. “#InspiredByTrueEvents is actually here…. this album has been in the making over the last few years & now it’s available for you to listen to [it]. it still blows my mind that a song starts from nothing & then becomes this thing that people can connect to…& that’s what I hope these songs become. This is by far the most vulnerable I’ve ever been in my music & even though it was a little scary, I know it’s exactly where I needed to be for this chapter of my life. I love you guys! thank you for listening, & I hope you enjoy??? #TK3

While her performance moved audience members, her unshakable faith inspires countless other people.

In a video for White Chair Films, Kelly shared the compelling story of how she confronted the lie that she wasn’t enough.

Kelly spoke to her 12-year-old self with some major truth bombs.

“I would tell that little girl who feels she’s too shy, or not bubbly enough, or doesn’t have the right look, or is not pretty enough, or that your life is boring, or that you have a boring personality, that that’s just a lie, and it’s not true, and you’re being built up into the woman that God wants you to be.”

In addition to Kelly, Colbert has hosted several other Christians during his tenure. He also speaks openly about his own faith during his own media appearances.

Colbert recently guest-starred on COOPER 360 with Anderson Cooper, who recently lost his mother, Gloria Vanderbilt. Colbert discussed his own faith in the light of grief. According to Relevant:

“If you’re grateful for your life …not everybody is and I’m not always, but it’s the most positive thing to do, then you have to be grateful for all of it. You can’t pick and choose what you’re grateful for,” Colbert says.

Cooper relates by with some wisdom he received from his mother about how you can’t understand happiness without also having some sadness.

“That’s the great gift of the sacrifice of Christ, is that God does it too,” Colbert says. “That you’re really not alone.”
