Rita Ora Performs Stevie Wonder Cover + More on ‘MTV Unplugged’

Rita Ora goes acoustic and performs her chart-topping hit songs for ‘MTV Unplugged,’ which premiered on MTV.com on Monday (Sept. 17). The blond-haired songstress and her backing band offer unique renditions of her singles that appear on her No. 1 U.K. album ‘ORA.’

The five-song set included guitar-charged renditions of ‘Roc the Life,’ ‘R.I.P.’ and ‘Shine Ya Light.’ She also performed a country-esque version of ‘How We Do (Party),’ and let the profanity fly with the chorus. “We wanna party and bull—, and party and bulls—,” she crooned, making the censors bleep out her curse words. The audience didn’t seem to mind the swearing as they were rocking back and forth in their seats.

But the big surprise in the show (at least to us) was Rita’s jazzy remake of Stevie Wonder’s 1984 ballad ‘Love Light in Flight.’ If Stevie was in the audience, even he would see (and hear) that Rita is a supreme vocal talent.

Overall, Rita’s performance on ‘MTV Unplugged’ shows that she is a pop siren on the verge of becoming a huge superstar stateside. Now if only she can finalize a U.S. release date for her Roc Nation debut ‘ORA.’ C’mon Rita, we are waiting! For now, check out the videos below!
