Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing - Tori Kelly |

Today, I've still got Sabrina Carpenter's "Thumbs" stuck in my head; what an awesomely catchy tune that is. Regardless, I searched through my YouTube recommendations again and found Tori Kelly, and I thought: 'Why not?' So here is this fantastic minimalist soundtrack music video to the animation film Sing, which Tori Kelly also stars in. Watch Tori Kelly perform like no one's watching, whilst fully interacting with the geometric shapes that appear in the music video for the Sing soundtrack music video "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing".

Tori Kelly is an inspiration to us all, she once was eliminated from American Idol, but she never gave up, regardless of the not-so-good comments given by the judges of the show. She has proven that if you never give up your dream, you'll get there. She is now one of the hottest up-and-coming female singers in the world right now, and she's ready for international success, that's for sure. She released a killer debut album in 2015 titled "Unbreakable Smile". This song features on the animated film Sing and is a cover version of the Stevie Wonder song of the same name "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing". It was written by Stevie Wonder.

The music video is completely stripped back, relying on Tori Kelly's amazing performance ability and creative animation editors to make the video engaging; and that is exactly what happens.

As we expected, Tori Kelly nails the performance of this music video. She's full of life, clearly honoured to be singing an official cover of this song. The song itself is technically brilliant with her vocals way past the amazing scale. Her voice sounds incredible and if she ever were to duet with JoJo, we know that would be a match-made-in-heaven collaboration. If you're lucky enough to see her live, then you are in for quite the treat, and will definitely leave me jealous.

As for the animators, they do a good job of painting shapes onto the walls and columns within the music video. However, I was totally expecting more; like, the characters from the film to pop out of the walls and perform with Tori Kelly. It was disappointing that didn't happen, and as many commenters noticed, Tori Kelly seems to expect that to happen too.

Overall, it's a great visual representation of Tori Kelly, perfectly showing off her incredible voice and performance energy. However, there is so much more that could have been done to make this perfect, and yet it's too stripped back.
