Amy Grant’s 1991 hit “Baby Baby” turns 25 this year, and to commemorate the occasion she’s decided to remake the song. To give “Baby Baby” a bit of an update, Grant tapped none other than rising young pop star and GRAMMY Best New Artist nominee Tori Kelly to help her.
“I was thrilled to hear that Tori was on board to record it,” Grant said. “Although I had not met Tori at that point, my 15-year-old daughter, Corrina, is a big fan of Tori’s and so I was very aware of her incredible talent and was honored she would sing this song” (via People).
Producer Dave Garcia kept Grant’s original vocals as-is and brought Kelly into the recording studio to do a fresh take. He then merged the two tracks for the updated version. Garcia said, “Tori is such an incredible vocalist, one of the most effortless singers I have ever heard, and once she starts singing it is like a rocket engine has been strapped on to the song and she takes us all on a ride. I really think she knocked it out of the park.”
