Rita Ora rehearsing yesterday in Vatican with fellow Albanian artists Bujar Llapaj, Genc Tukiçi and Shkelzen Doli.

Rita Ora is to perform in front of Pope Francis at the Vatican this weekend ahead of Mother Teresa’s canonisation.

The British-Kosovan singer and TV star, 25, said her upcoming gig is “massive” and that it is a “real honour” to perform in front of the leader of the Catholic Church.

Ora spoke candidly during an appearance on US chat show The Tonight Show, admitting that she is ” a spiritual person” and that “the Vatican is actually a big deal”.

The show’s host Jimmy Fallon agreed, to which she replied: “Then I looked at the guest list and I see the Pope! I thought, what do you wear to see the Pope?”

Ora revealed she will be singing traditional Christmas song What Child Is This.

She said: “It’s massive, I’m really looking forward to it. It’s actually to celebrate Mother Teresa, who has now become a saint.

“It’s a real honour, and I don’t know if anyone’s really done the whole Vatican venue thing before.”

She added: “It’s a bit interesting that the Vatican is someone’s venue. It’s going to be fantastic.”

Mother Teresa, who was also born in Kosovo, is to have her sanctity as a saint sealed by Pope Francis during a canonisation Mass in St Peter’s Square on Sunday, the eve of the 19th anniversary of her death.
