Rita Ora honors Avicii with tribute

Rita Ora remembered the late Avicii with an emotional live tribute at BBC Music’s The Biggest Weekend.

The 27-year-old singer performed ‘Lonely Together’, which she released with the DJ – who was tragically found dead in his hotel room last month aged 28 – as the words ‘Avicii 1989 – 2018’ appeared on the screen behind her.

During her show on Sunday (27.05.18), she told the Swansea festival crowd after the song: “Thank you. Thank you for singing that with me. It’s always hard for me to sing that, so thank you so much for singing along.”

The track was the Swedish star’s final release before his death, and Rita previously admitted it was tough to perform it during a show in the Netherlands last month. She said at the time: “I had the honor of collaborating with someone who changed my life and he was a really good friend of mine.

“I heard some DJs playing some of his music earlier, and I haven’t sung his song that we did together ever since he passed away, until today. It’s going to be very hard for me to sing this next song.”

Following the death of the ‘Wake Me Up’ hitmaker, the Oman police department found “no criminal suspicion” relating to Avicii’s death and two post-mortem examinations were conducted, with authorities ruling out foul play.

At the end of April, his family released a statement which seemingly confirmed the EDM star had taken his own life.
