The Singer Rita Ora performs at EFOTT (Egyetemisták és Főiskolások Országos Turisztikai Találkozója, in English: National Touristic Meeting of University and College Students) festival this year, which is held on 9-15 July in Velence – the organisers informed MTI.

According to the announcement,

Rita Ora has more than 18 Million listeners on Spotify every month; she co-worked with Avicii, and her brand-new single OWY debuted the other day.

The songs of the pop diva are constantly broadcasted by the Hungarian radios as well.

Rita Sahatciu was born in Kosovo. She was one year old when her family relocated to England because of the South Slavic war, where her father changed their surname to Ora in favour of the easier pronunciation. Firstly, she sang in the pub owned by the family; she became publicly known in 2007 when she featured in the song Awkward by Craig David.

Two years later, she wanted to represent England on the Eurovision Song Contest, but she withdrew because she thought that she was not ready for this challenge. Another two years later she again came into public notice with her song Hot Right Now alongside DJ Fresh. From that point on, her career began to take off: with her single R.I.P., later with her album called Ora she reached the top of the hit list.



The music video made for the hit Girls, which she recorded with Bebe Rexha, Charli XCX and Cardi B, was streamed more than 57 Million times all over the world. Moreover, she worked alongside James Morrison and Iggy Azalea as well. She was shown on the television and on the big screen too: she can be seen in Furious 6 and also in the Fifty Shades of Gray trilogy.

Beside Rita Ora’s concert,

approximately 200 more musical programs are awaiting visitors in 2019 at EFOTT.

Out of the Hungarian musicians Halott Pénz, Majka, Margaret Island, ByeAlex és a Slepp, Tankcsapda, Supernem, Road and AWS are going to perform – can be read in the announcement.
