Tori Kelly blew everyone away at Sunday's Billboard Music Awards when she took the stage with just her guitar to perform her song, "Nobody Love".

Tori Kelly stole hearts during her run on American Idol's 9th season. Since then, she has molded quite the social media following for herself and has made millions of fans through her videos and Vine activity.

Now, Tori Kelly is getting ready to release her first album with the help of her manager, Scooter Braun, who is also powerhouse behind Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen.

Tori Kelly said of the making of the album, called Unbreakable Smile, "There was definitely ups and downs. I wouldn't want people to think that it was just like 'snap your fingers' and the album is done. There is definitely a lot of hard work that goes into the album."
