Singer Rita Ora would never say no to a good karaoke session.
That was proven when she and the group Sigma stopped by Captial FM Studios to promote their new single “Coming Home.” While their song is great, Ora got some attention for putting her own spin on two of the hottest songs of the moment Drake’s “Hotline Bling” and Adele’s “Hello.”
The radio host, Max, asked Rita Ora and Sigma if they would participate in their game of “Instaoke,” which is instant karaoke. Rita, who’s been a guest on the show before, was hailed as the queen of the game. She and Sigma immediately jumped at the chance to play. Once Max threw on “Hotline Bing,” the trio of musicians began singing Drake’s hit and having a great time. Ora got into it when she sang, “Ever since I left the city you…” The members of Sigma filled in the parts of the raps Ora didn’t know.
When it came time to try her hand at Adele’s song, instead doing a straight take, Rita decided to sing the song in another language. Rita sounded great, but no one recognized what language she was singing in, “I just made it up,” said Ora. Not bad for being put on the spot.
