“Talk about your favorite singer” is a question that often appears in IELTS SPEAKING PART 2.
Cue card 1 : Talk about your favorite singer
You should say:
- What kind of music do they play?
- Where and when did you hear them for the first time?
- Why do you like their music?
I love listening to different forms of music depending on the situations and my mood. But if I had to choose a singer to talk about, I would like to mention my all-time favorite singer Taylor Swift.
She’s now renowned as a successful pop singer with many hit songs and albums. But she used to pursue a career in country music and she also earned the title “The princess of country music”.
I remember that I first came across her songs when I was in extra class randomly listening to the US- UK Billboard Hot 100, about 10 years ago. At that time, her song “Love story” catched my ears immediately due to its catchy melody and meaningful lyrics. Until now, I still set that song to my ringtone.
Taylor not only has a very sweet and amazing voice, which makes her a talented singer, but she also has a flair for composing songs. Most of her compositions come from her own life and experiences so they’re very inspiring, vivid and touching as if sometimes I think that she is telling my stories. You can listen to her songs regardless of how bored or happy, tired or energetic you are. They still mean something and bring a positive feeling to your mind .
That’s all I want to say about the topic.
Cue card 2 : Talk about your favorite singer
You should say:
- Who this singer is?
- What type of songs he/she sings ?
- What type of people listen to his/her songs ?
and explain Why he/she is your favorite singer.?
There are so many talented artists nowadays that it isn’t an easy task to pick one of them as my favorite. But I’d like to talk about Sam Smith, a recent world’s phenomenon.
Sam Smith is a young English pop singer – songwriter who rose to fame back in 2012 with single “Latch”, which peaked at number 7 on US Billboard Hot 100 and that’s how I found out about him. Since then, he has released several other hit songs, one of which, “Stay with me” won him 4 Grammy Awards last month.
Most of Sam Smith’s songs are sad break-up songs which, according to him, tell about the story between him and his ex-boyfriend.
Besides the fact that Sam Smith is an extremely talented singer who has a great voice, I find his music very touching and inspirational. He’s a gay man and he’s not afraid to show who he is through his music. I think that’s the reason why his music is popular. He stays true to himself and inspires others to do the same.
