Pray for him to find his worth in the Lord and not in his career.

Celebrity Prayer Focus: Tori Kelly

By | Celebrity Prayer Focus | No Comments

Victoria Loren “Tori” Kelly (born December 14, 1992) is an American singer, songwriter, actress and record producer. Kelly first gained recognition after posting videos on YouTube at the age of 14. When she was 16, she auditioned for the singing competition television series American Idol. After being eliminated from the show, Kelly began to work on her own music. In 2012, she independently released her first EP that she produced, wrote, and mixed herself, titled Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly. The following year, Scooter Braun became her manager after seeing her videos on YouTube and introduced her to Capitol Records, with which she signed in September. Kelly’s second EP Foreword came out in October 2013 as her first major label release. On June 23, 2015, Kelly’s debut album, Unbreakable Smile, was released. The lead single, “Nobody Love”, was released in February 2015 and became her first US Billboard Hot 100 appearance. Kelly was nominated for Best New Artist at the 58th Grammy Awards. She voiced a shy teenage elephant named Meena in the 2016 animated film Sing.

Kelly is a practicing Christian. Faith plays a part in her songwriting, though she does not consider herself a part of the Christian music genre.
In September 2017, Kelly announced her engagement to basketball player André Murillo. On May 20, 2018, she announced their marriage in an Instagram post.

[Summary edited from Wikipedia]

Tori Kelly often speaks about the influence her faith has on her life. She recently released a new album (Hiding Place) that is heavily influenced by gospel music, and also made a video with I Am Second sharing some of her testimony. She tells about her experience of rejection and inauthenticity in the music industry and how important it was for her to find her identity in Christ. As you listen to her story, pray for Tori Kelly to continue boldly sharing her faith and that her music will fill the lives and hearts of her fans with God’s love. Click here to view the video.

Let’s pray for Tori Kelly to grow closer to Jesus every single day, and that she can continue to know the truth that her identity is in God and not in her work. Pray also for her new marriage, and that she and her husband André can seek God together and grow closer to each other in the process. Pray that as Tori’s career may continue to grow, she takes every opportunity to share her faith and her experience of God’s love with her fans, whether through music or otherwise. We pray that in the coming weeks and months, she will know God is with her and be able to trust God with all things.

Pray for funding

Pray that the funding for my faith friendly and faith based film slate would be released by the spirits of darkness who not want positive, healthful, grounded faith friendly and faith based films to be made, but would in fact manifest and be made known. – Toni

By | Celebrity Prayer Focus | No Comments

Jonathan Murray Chu is an American filmmaker, best known for directing the movies such as Step Up 2: The Streets, Step Up 3D, Justin Bieber: Never Say NeverCrazy Rich Asians, and Hasbro franchises Jem and the Holograms and G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Chu is an alumnus of the University of Southern California School of Cinema-Television. There, he won the Princess Grace Award, the Dore Schary Award presented by the Anti-Defamation League, the Jack Nicholson directing award, and was recognized as an honoree for the IFP/West program Project: Involve.

Chu was born in Palo Alto, California, and grew up in nearby Los Altos. His father, Lawrence Chu, is a well-known chef, and his parents own Chef Chu’s, a popular restaurant in Los Altos. He attended Pinewood School from kindergarten through 12th grade.

After making his student short, When the Kids Are Away, Chu was signed to William Morris Agency and attached to several high-profile projects. Chu was hired by Sony Pictures to direct their feature Bye Bye Birdie but Sony never greenlit the film due to budget concerns. Sony recently got back into business with Chu to direct their updated version of The Great Gatsby, which did not pan out, but, after being purchased by Warner Bros. Pictures with Baz Luhrmann attached, developed into the 2013 film. He is in a dance crew called AC/DC or Adam/Chu Dance crew. Chu has also executive produced several TV series, and is directing on the new show Good Trouble, a spinoff of The Fosters. He has also been announced as executive producer for an upcoming series Hilde Cracks the Case.

Chu is currently directing the online series The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers. His most recent film, Crazy Rich Asians, releases mid-August 2018.

In an interview, Chu addressed a question he is often asked, “Why do all of your films have dance?” He responded, “I don’t know why. It seems so obvious. But there’s something about the dancers that motivate me the most. I don’t know if it’s just dance, but I do think that the dancers are amazing artists, and every time I meet a new dancer, that triggers something in my brain, and I’m more creative than I could ever be. When I feel that creativity burst, I go with it.”
