Rita Ora Fights Back Tears While Paying Tribute To Avicii
Rita Ora took the stage at the 538Koningsdag Music Festival Friday night in the Netherlands and got choked up while paying tribute to late DJ Avicii.
Rita stopped the show to share how important Avicii was to her and how he changed her life. She also told the crowd that she was going to perform their song “Lonely Together” which was going to be extremely hard for her to do. Before doing that, Rita asked the crowd to take a moment of silence for her good friend.

There were around 40,000 people at the festival and they all got very quiet, so there were definitely some Avicii fans in the house.
Avicii whose real name is Tim Bergling, passed away last week in Muscat, Oman. His family has since strongly suggested his death was a suicide. “Lonely Together” was the last track Avicii released before his tragic passing. He was only 28.
