rita ora lover of the light

British singer/songwriter and R&B pop sensation Rita Ora recently dropped by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge to deliver a passionate performance of Mumford & Sons‘ “Lover Of The Light.”

The song is one of the highlights of the band’s Grammy-winning  Babel album and Rita more than does it justice. Marcus Mumford’s pleading wail sounds great on the original, but Rita takes it to another range. She scales the high notes with ease and playfully skates around the adept guitar strumming, proving those BRIT nominations are truly warranted. Rita also performs her single “Radioactive.”

Have a look and a listen to her rendition below and be sure to check Jessie Ware’s recent appearance as well here.
