Rita Ora Biography

Rita Ora is the latest artist from Jay-Z’s Roc Nation’s scouting and she knows that she would be the next great star under the label. Rita Sahatciu Ora was originally born in Pristina, Kosovo in November 1990 and moved to London with her parents and sister in the same year. She grew up in West London and graduated at Sylvia Young Theatre School and then St Charles Catholic Sixth Form College.

Ora began to sing at the age of 14 and started her career by appearing in a British film called “Spivs”. Later in 2007, when she was 16-year-old, was featured Craig David’s track “Awkward”, a gig that she repeated the next year in David’s “Where’s Your Love”. Despite the recordings, she had not had her big break yet.

Ora went for an audition of BBC One’s “Eurovision” representing England in 2009 but withdrew in the competition after a few episodes. “After my first audition I blacked out, I was just like, ‘I can’t do this’. I’m not knocking it or anything – it’s been around for years. I’m just very, very happy I made that decision myself. I think that’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made,” she told Digital Spy.

Ora started singing in bars around London and gained local popularity. A talent scouter told Roc Nation about her, and the fledging label quickly flew her to New York to meet Jay-Z. In 2009, Ora met Jay-Z for the first time and  immediately signed to the label. She spent the next years working to make her first album.

Backed up by Jay-Z, Ora released her first single “How We Do (Party) in February 2012. The single was quickly overshadowed by the second single “R.I.P” which features Tinie Tempah. It debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart with sales of 104,500 and became the seventh-fastest selling single of 2012 in one single week.

Ora announced that her first album is called “ORA” and released on August 27, 2012. She promoted her music by opening for Coldplay’s concerts in summer that year.
