A singer, song writer and actress all wrapped up in one, Rita Sahatçiu Ora has definitely won the hearts of the British audience. Born in November 26, 1990, this young talented musician has hit the top charts in the UK for her debut album, “Ora”, in the year 2012, with her singles being “How We Do (Party)” and “R.I.P”.
Soon after becoming the number 1 featured act on “Hot Right Now”, Rita Ora became one of the most-respected and popular musicians. She is among the very few artists who have managed to have more than one single hitting the UK Singles Chart in 2012. Success after that was rapid as she received nominations for three different awards for the 2013 Brit Awards. She continued to pave the way to stardom as her single for her 2nd album, “I Will Never Let You Down”, also stood at number 1, making her the 2nd British female artist who was able to have 4 singles that topped the UK charts, with the first female artist being the equally talented Geri Halliwell.
Born in Kosovo, Rita Ora moved to the UK when she was 1 year old. She began her music career by singing at open mic sessions in London in the year 2007. Her first appearances include the music video of Craig David’s track, “Awkward” and “Where’s Your Love” that featured Tinchy Stryder. She also sang as back vocals in some of Jame’s Morrison’s albums.
In the year 2011, she caught the attention of DJ Fresh, who was then looking for a female talent who could sing his singles, through her Youtube covers and videos. Because of her sheer talent and determination, her aforementioned singles became top of the UK charts in just a matter of months. Aside from always ranking number one in the charts, she also started embarking on UK tours as support for her debut album.
Presently, Rita Ora still continues to hit the UK charts with the most current single, “Black Widow”, being included in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 Chart last August 2014. Truly, no one can argue with the fact that Rita Ora is one of the best musicians today.
