Buzz acts come and go, but the pertinent feeling amongst those that have heard the results of Rita Ora’s knockout first round in the recording studio as a bona fide solo star, accompanied by a blue chip roster of production hands, is that the effect she has locally is about to translate to the upper terrains of the global pop market. A composite of street-smarts of the metropolitan life she was schooled in and pure, urgent, otherworldly star quality, she makes for a brilliantly contradictory mix.
Rita Sahatçiu Ora (born 26 November 1990), better known as Rita Ora, is a British singer-songwriter and actress. In 2009, she appeared on the BBC’s Eurovision: Your Country Needs You where she auditioned to be the British contestant for the Eurovision Song Contest 2009. Later in 2009, she signed to Roc Nation. Ora is of Kosovar Albanian ethnicity.
In 2012, Ora provided the vocals for DJ Fresh’s “Hot Right Now“, which has been the fastest selling single in the UK of 2012. Ora’s debut single, “R.I.P“, topped the UK Singles Chart in May 2012. Ora will spend the summer 2012 opening concerts for Coldplay.
