I Was Made For Loving You singer has always been open about the influence her parents had on her music. While promoting her first EP “Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly,” Tori opened up about her upbringing and the influence it had on her musical journey.

“My parents were always playing different styles growing up. Everything from Led Zeppelin to a lot of Lenny Kravitz, and then you got the soul stuff like Maxwell [and] Jill Scott… I give them a lot of credit for just playing all different genres, and no genre was off limits, so it’s kind of all in me somewhere,” Tori told Fuse.

Tori’s third studio album “Inspired by True Events,” which the award-winning singer herself deemed her “most vulnerable album to date”, takes its inspiration from her parent’s divorce.

Talking about the album with Forbes, Tori told that she never wanted to make “Inspired by True Events” such a personal record but it just so happened. “It wasn’t intentional… But there was just so much that went on in the last couple of years… My parents separated… At one point, but not right away, that all went into the music.”
