Tori Kelly Posts a Health Update: “I Can Feel Your Prayers”

Singer Tori Kelly has shared a heartfelt update with her fans after being hospitalized earlier this week.

“As you may have heard, I’m dealing with some unexpected health challenges,” Kelly wrote. “It’s been a scary few days but I can feel your prayers and can’t stop thinking about you. I’m feeling stronger now and hopeful but unfortunately there are still some things to uncover. I’m so grateful for the amazing doctors and nurses who have been looking after me.”

On Sunday, Kelly was admitted to the hospital after telling friends she was experiencing an unusually fast heartbeat. The medical team immediately began investigating the possibility of clots near her heart, further raising concerns about the singer’s health.

The singer, who won two Grammys for Best Gospel Album and Best Gospel Performance/Song in 2019, was set to release her long-awaited EP, Tori, this Friday.

“Of course I’m heartbroken about all of the things I had planned for this week of releasing my EP, but I know my health must come first,” she wrote. “Until I see you again, I still want you to enjoy a project that represent the happy place I’ve been in the last few years. I won’t let this hurdle prevent the music from being yours on Friday!”

Kelly closed out her note thanking her fans for their care and support. She also posted the update with the caption “Deuteronomy 31:8,” which reads, “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
