Music Newcomer- Rita Ora

28 Mar
British singing beauty Rita Ora is bringing her talents across the ocean and here to the United States. As the newest signee to the Roc Nation label, Ora is quickly leaving her mark and making a name for herself.
Ora was born in Prishtina, Kosovoto Albanian parents but moved to London, England where she grew up. She has been singing most of her life but began to take it seriously around the age of fourteen. She auditioned for and was featured on numerous British shows and talent contests.
In 2009, Ora somehow caught the eye of music and entertainment mogul Jay-Z. After displaying her musical talents to him, her quickly and quietly signed the young girl to his major label, Roc Nation.
Since being signed, Ora had done many collaborations with many artist, including fellow British singer Craig David. She has been featured in commercials for Skullcandy headphones, made a cameo in Jay-Z’s video for the song “Forever Young”, and more recently she was featured as the love interest of rapper Drake in the video of his hit single “Over.”
For now, Rita has been under wraps and quietly working on her debut album. She is working with top producers and artist such as Drake, Alicia Keys, and The Dream. Her first single “Uneasy”, along with the video, is set to be released soon.

    How did you find out about her? Thanks for posting about her though. I have to look up some of her music now. I am always looking for new artists to hear from because I get tired of hearing from the same artists. In a way you are helping with her public relations because each person who reads your blog is going to learn about her. Good start!
