Tori Kelly on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Sept. 24, 2018.

Tori Kelly brought some gospel flavor to The Late Late Show on Monday night (Sept. 24) with a simmering performance of her gospel-pop hit "Never Alone." Performing the powerful single from her recently released gospel-influenced album Hiding Place backed by a full band, 10-person gospel choir and three back-up singers, the Grammy-winner's voice soared as she locked into the inspiring chorus, "I've cried many rivers/ I've walked through some pain/ I've seen my world crumble/ And I've carried the shame/ But I know somebody, He calls me His own/ I can hear heaven singing out/ Oh-oh-oh, you're never alone."

The song -- co-written with Kirk Franklin -- features an uplifting message about setting aside material pursuits and focusing on walking with God. Franklin danced into frame mid-way through the performance, throwing down some words of encouragement and lifting the choir to higher heights as the song came to a thundering conclusion.

"Never Alone" jetted to the No. 2 spot on Billboard's Hot Gospel Songs chart dated Sept. 8, leading the charge for all eight songs from the album to debut on the chart.
