Rita Ora pays tribute to a legend in a special performance tonight.

As part of Children In Need Rocks 2018, several pop favourites will be performing one-off covers and classic hits.

This will include Rita Ora performing a new version of George Michael's 'Freedom 90'. Watch a clip from the performance above.

When asked why she decided to cover the song, Rita said: "George Michael and the song 'Freedom' changed my life, it made me feel like I was able to do anything, take over the world. He is an icon, I hope my cover honours him and reminds people of his incredible talent."
