Share this article


Rita Ora paid an emotional tribute to the late Avicii during her set at BBC Radio 1's Biggest Weekend. 

The DJ and producer was tragically found dead last month at the age of 28. 

Rita took to the stage to perform their track 'Lonely Together' yesterday, admitting she finds it hard to sing the song, which was the last single Avicii, born Tim Bergling, produced before he died. 

Avicii's name flashed up on the screens on stage as Ora performed the collaboration.

"Thank you for singing that with me. It's always hard for me to sing that, so thank you so much for singing along", she told the crowd after the performance.

Rita previously described Avicii as "a really good friend" who "changed my life".

Ora will perform at Summer in the City at Dublin's RDS on June 24th, alongside The Chainsmokers and John Gibbons.
