Rita Ora

Rita Sahatçiu Ora (born Rita Sahatçiu; 1990) is a British singer and actress. Ora was born in Pristina, Kosovo to Albanian parents; her catholic mother is a psychiatrist, her muslim father an economist and a pub owner. Her debut studio album, Ora, released in 2012, debuted at number one in the United Kingdom. The album contained the UK number-one singles, "R.I.P." and "How We Do (Party)". After reaching the peak position as a featured act on DJ Fresh's "Hot Right Now", Ora became the artist with the most number-one singles on the UK Singles Chart in 2012, with three consecutive singles reaching the top position.
Ora is of Albanian ethnicity and speaks Albanian. Asked about her religion, Ora stated: "I believe in God and I’m of Muslim culture, but my parents never forced me. Above all, they raised me with the idea that I could make my own choices and have my own beliefs." She considers herself a feminist.
Ora performed at the Chime for Change charity concert, which raised funds and awareness for girls' and women's issues around the world. On 7 May 2014, Ora headlined the third annual “Gabrielle’s Gala” fundraiser at Old Billingsgate Market, London, with proceeds going to Cancer Research UK.
