Rita Ora to sing for Pope Francis at the Vatican
Singer Rita Ora will perform for Pope Francis during an event honouring the life of Mother Teresa. The ‘Body On Me’ hitmaker is just one of the performers selected to appear at a concert being held at St Peter’s Basilica in Rome, Italy on Sept 3rd.
Rita Ora will sing the hymn ‘What Child Is This?‘ at the celebration, as she told to Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday (Aug30). The artist was a special guest during ‘The Tonight Show’, and she shared her excitement about travelling to Vatican City for the historic event.
“I looked at the guest list and I saw P.O.P.E….Pope?!” she said. “It’s a real honour and I don’t know if anyone’s done the whole Vatican venue thing before, it’s a bit interesting that the Vatican’s someone’s venue but it’s going to be fantastic.”
The singer confessed to be not sure about having the opportunity to speak with the Pontiff but declared thrilled to have been invited to the Vatican, the heart of the Catholic Church.
