Rita Ora has the performance of a lifetime coming up. She shared her big news during a trip to The Tonight Show, where Jimmy Fallon, asked her about her next big gig, and it turns out it’s going to be singing for Pope Francis, 79. “I’m going to the Vatican! I’m more of a spiritual person, so the Vatican I figured out is actually a big deal,” she joked, being totally chill about the amazing honour.
“I looked at the guest list and I saw P.O.P.E….Pope?!” she sweetly exclaimed as if she was just learning about him for the first time! She noted that she’s singing Greensleeves, breaking into the song with ‘What child is this who laid to rest,’ before laughing that she didn’t know the rest of the words to the hymn. Rita mentioned she’s heading there, “To celebrate Mother Teresa who has now become a saint. I’m going to do a whole ‘What’s up pope’ thing,” before Jimmy advised her to google more proper things to say to the Pontiff.
