The Grammy Award-winning and Dove Award-winning singer is being treated for blood clots after doctors discovered them throughout her body and near vital organs. Some reports share that Kelly has been in and out of consciousness since being admitted to the ICU at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Laurie asked his Twitter followers to pray for Kelly, sharing a clip of their interview.
“Let’s all be praying for @torikelly. She is in the hospital due to blot clots. They say it’s serious,” Laurie wrote. “Tori is a believer in Jesus Christ and I know she and her family will appreciate your prayers for her.”
During her interview with Laurie, Kelly shared that church was always a part of her life, and she had believed that Jesus was her personal Lord and Savior from a young age.
“I think I was like nine when I started singing in church on stage, and so yeah, church was always a big part of my life and Jesus was a big part of my life,” Kelly told Laurie.
Nevertheless, Kelly explained that there were times when she would look back on her younger years and question if she really believed in who Jesus was or if her belief was just a part of her childhood.
“Our walks can be up and down. And it’s a whole journey, but I think looking back to when I was about five years old, there’s a story I vividly remember,” Kelly said. “My aunt was babysitting me, and we were walking across the street and she was like, ‘You got to look both ways. We don’t want you to get hit by a car or anything.’ And I just so confidently said, ‘It’s fine. I’ll just go to heaven. If I die, it’s okay.’ And it kind of freaked her out a little bit.”
In her “I Am Second” video, Kelly said that Jesus is her “everything,” and if all of her career accomplishments were to vanish, it wouldn’t matter. “Through Christ, I can just be myself and just be surrounded by his love,” she said.
