Rita Ora is a brown-eyed British woman of Albanian origin, which seems to consist of only contradictions. Just yesterday another abandoned boyfriend accuses Rita of numerous infidelities, and today the Pope himself invites her to speak at the Vatican at the event on the canonization of mother Teresa. Here she is storming qualifying round of the Eurovision song contest, passes several stages and…refusing to further participate, citing her unwillingness to such serious projects.
She works a lot, tours, writes poetry and music, and for 10 years of her eventful musical career there is only one album. So who is she, this beauty with platinum hair, perfect smile and low exciting mezzo-soprano, who will be envied by many Opera singers?
At birth, the future singer called Rita Sfatcu. Her name comes from the Turkish word “saatçi”, which means “watchmaker”. But later her parents added her a pseudonym – Ora, which means “time” in Albanian. They rightly felt that such a name is easier to pronounce and remember.

The girl sang in the choir since her childhood, and her teacher advised her to continue her education in the theater school. Sylvia Young. In addition to General subjects Rita studied dance, singing, dramatic art.
In the early stages of his musical career, the performances of the future star were mostly held in pubs in London and its surroundings. Interestingly, one of the pubs belonged to her father.
In 2004, the first fateful meeting took place. After one of the concerts Ora met Martin Terefe. Martin is a music producer from Sweden who has worked with many famous artists. It was thanks to Terefe that the girl began to compose songs herself, in addition, a contract for producing for a period of two years was signed.

In 2009, Rita took part in the Eurovision song contest: your country needs you. She passes a few rounds, but voluntarily abandons the fight because you don’t feel ready for such serious challenges. Sarah Stennet, Director of the singer, explained that at that time the participation in the competition seemed to the artist almost the only way to succeed. At the same time, in the opinion of the Sarah, the participation in the Eurovision song contest career of Rita likely would have prevented.
In 2009, Rita appears as a cameo in Jay-Z’s “YoungForever” video, and in 2010 in Drake’s “Over” video.
During 2011, Ora continues to work on her first album, periodically posting videos about it in the public. British producer and DJ DJFresh, who was looking for a singer for the song “HotRightNow”, interested in the rollers Rita. The song was released in February 2012 and immediately topped the official hit parade of UK singles.

Then Ora has hinted that her second album is a more interesting and diverse than the first. In an interview with the British entertainment portal “Digital Spy” the singer explained that the highlight of the new album will be an unusual point of view on “party girl”.
In the summer of 2014 with the participation of Rita released the single American hip-hop singer Iggy Azalea, well known to us for her leaked nude photos.
