Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Finding a pop star with a real set of pipes feels like trying to win the lottery. You know it's possible, but the odds are long.

Last night, Rita Ora stopped by downtown Miami's Grand Central for a superintimate acoustic performance of her budding and Billboard hits. It was MTV Unplugged style, as she and her guitarist sat atop stools on the stage, telling little stories behind the songs. This was maybe the best possible way to enjoy Ms. Ora for the first time, because, low and behold, this girl can really, really sing.
