Sample Answer 1
Here is the sample for “Describe your favorite singer” topic
I’ve recently got into Ariana Grande’s music, so I’m going to talk about her. Ariana’s been around for quite some time now, debuting in 2013, achieving some success with that first album.
However, although her songs have always been catchy, her voice sweet and tender, she wasn’t really a top star until recently. Her latest album is what launches her into superstardom, with the lead single “Thank u, next” topping music charts all around the world.
I think the reason the song catches on is that she has put her personal stories into it, being a kiss-off anthem, full of post-breakup nostalgia and hopeful sentiments at the same time.
I want to meet her just to see her in person, and maybe talk a bit about how she writes her songs. I know this is a long shot, but she did flirt with the idea of touring in my country once. Hopefully she’ll come here some time in the future.

Sample Answer 2
If truth is said, I am a huge melophile. I love listening to varying forms of music depending upon the situation and my mood. Although I can listen to every type of song, my all time favourite is Arijit Singh. I have tagged him as my favourite not only because of his melancholic voice but his sober and calm personality as well.
The first time I heard him sing was in the movie Murder 2. The song ‘Phir Mohabbat’ was his first-ever song. Generally, Arijit sings romantic and sad songs. One of the reasons why I love his songs is because they fill me up with calmness. I have a lot of friends settled and working in Mumbai. Once, when I was visiting them, I had a chance to be a part of Arijit’s concert. All throughout the concert, my levels of excitement had no limits. Standing in the crowd, right in front of the stage, I was only ogling at his generosity. His voice was too mesmerizing.
Fortunately, at the end of the concert, I got a chance to meet him since my friend had some connections with the organization. I was literally shivering while shaking hands with him. I can guarantee that I would have never smiled this big as I did when taking a selfie with Arijit.
Later, I got to know that he donated all of the accumulated money to treat a child fighting cancer. Hearing this, respect for Arijit shot up manifolds. I wish there were more celebrities like him in our industry. He doesn’t believe in showing off. He is extremely humble and down-to-earth. That is one of the reasons why I admire him so much.
