Rita Ora: I sing Celine

Rita Ora has joked about her penchant for singing along to Céline Dion songs with her father.

The up-and-coming British singer is signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation label and has been tipped for big things in the music industry.

Rita has just landed her first UK number one with her debut track R.I.P and has revealed who her inspiration was growing up.

The 21-year-old star says Céline was regularly played in her family home.

"Me and my dad always used to sing along to her songs. If I told the whole world he loved Celine Dion he'd kill me. Oops, I just told The Sun," she laughed in an interview with the British newspaper.

Rita loves working with rapper Jay-Z. The stunning star has previously admitted she isn't star-struck by the international superstar or his equally famous wife.

"Beyoncé comes into the studio when I'm recording. She's there for advice if I'm struggling with a lyric or concept of a song. But it's weird because, even though I love her, for me it's the boss' wife," she revealed.
