Rita Ora to sing at Soccer Aid

Share article:

ita Ora is to perform at "Soccer Aid" as part of her new role as a UK ambassador for Unicef.

The 28-year-old pop star will sing during during half-time of the charity football match which takes place at Chelsea's Stamford Bridge stadium in London on June 16 and will be broadcast live on ITV.

Rita has supported Unicef UK since 2013, when she featured in the charity's "No Place Like Home" video to help raise awareness of the refugee crisis in Syria, and she is beyond proud to now be an official ambassador.

The 28-year-old singer Rita also recently travelled to her native Kosovo earlier this year in support of the Soccer Aid for Unicef campaign to see how Unicef programmes are improving child health, childhood development and education in marginalised communities.

Speaking about her role with the organisation and "Soccer Aid" show", Rita said: "I'm beyond honoured to be appointed a Unicef UK Ambassador. Since 2013, I have learnt a great deal about Unicef and the amazing work they do to drive positive change for the children of our future. My recent trip to Kosovo allowed me to see Unicef's wonderful work first hand back in my native country, and I am more determined than ever to utilise my position to support, campaign and advocate.

"It's also incredible to be performing at "Soccer Aid" for Unicef this year. This year's event will no doubt be bigger and better than ever before and to be able to play right in the middle of Stamfrod Bridge at half-time is brilliant. It's going to be an amazing match - get your tickets now!"

"Soccer Aid" will feature a match between an England XI, managed by "Good Morning " co-host Susanna Reid and Sam Allardyce, and a World XI that boasts Harry Redknapp and Susanna's "GMB" co-host Piers Morgan as the gaffers.
