Model Answer 1

Well, l am a melophile. I love to listen to various forms of music depending on my mood and situation. Although I listen to all the singer’s songs, my all time favorite is Amarinder Gill. Not just because of his melodious voice but also because of his calm and sober personality.

How do you know this singer?
Once I went to Ludhiana on the marriage of one of my friends, and there this singer was also invited, and when I got to know about this, I was super excited to meet him. That day was too long for me as each and every minute was like an hour to me. Finally, when he arrived, everyone started clicking pictures, and he got immediately surrounded by his fans, due to which I was unable to go close to him.

Do you think he/she is good? and What is this person like?
Then, when he started singing, everyone got mesmerized by his voice. Moreover, all the money collected was donated by him to the waiters who were working in the palace. This moment touched my heart, and respect for him increased. At last, I met him and clicked some selfies and had an autograph that I have kept with a lot of care till now. He is also a brilliant actor, and I have always seen his movies first-day first show.

So, this is the singer whom I admire and is my favorite.
