Talent always rises to the top — and in Tori Kelly's case, that old saying actually holds true.

We've watched the singer-songwriter truly blossom over the years, from stalled attempts at stardom with shows like Star Search and American Idol to viral YouTube covers to inking a major label deal with Scooter Braun and Capitol Records to Grammy nominations and a Top 10 debut LP, Unbreakable Smile.

Throughout all this time, however, one thing has never changed: that voice. Tori's powerful chops are what's kept her rising up the ranks, as evidenced from her breakout moment at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards to hits like "Nobody Love" and "Should've Been Us."

We've rounded up some of Tori's best live vocal moments to prove just how talented she truly is, which you can check out up top.
