'You never know': Tori Kelly hints at possible collaboration with her 'label buddy' One Direction's Niall Horan
She made a name for herself as a You Tube singer and appearing on American Idol in 2010.
But now, singer Tori Kelly is a full-fledged star in her own right and already a Grammy-nominated artist.
And it appears the 24-year-old's career could sky-rocket even further with talk of a collaboration with One Direction singer Niall Horan.

The performer, who is now back in the States, visited Australia last month to promote her new animated movie, Sing.
The Golden Globe nominated film follows a range of animals who take part in an American Idol style televised singing competition.
With a premise close to reality for Tori, it's no surprise she's a part of the film - playing the role of Meena, a shy elephant with a big voice.
And the blonde beauty admits to the publication that while she never expected an opportunity like this to come her way, she's always wanted to voice a character in a movie.
