My favorite band: Aerosmith
"Janie's Got A Gun" was the very first song that I heard from Aerosmith. Yet many years after that, it still remains to be my all-time favorite hit from the band. We were in the car with my family on our way home and the song immediately grabbed my attention. It was the orchestral feel of the song and the moments of pure rock that really got me hooked.
Aerosmith has been rocking the world since 1970. And their "Dream On," "Pink" "Walk This Way," and "Sweet Emotion" are the earworm power ballads of 1990s till now.
Лексика
all-time favorite - фаворит всех времен
grab attention - привлечь внимание
get hooked - подсесть
power ballads - рок-баллада

My favorite band: Imagine Dragons
Dan Reynolds, the lead singer, songwriter and the founder of the band believes they are an atypical rock band. They are not covered in tattoos, not making antisocial statements, yet have the spirit of rock'n'roll.
Their song "Radioactive" topped the charts for a record-shattering 87 weeks, and the band's 2012 debut album, Night Visions, went double-platinum in the United States.
I think Imagine Dragons are a perfect balance between rock and pop music. Dan Reynolds grew up loving masters of rock melody like Elton John and Harry Nilsson.
When he sang, his brothers would tease him about his voice. But he learned the drums, and at around 12 years old, stole his older brother Mac's microphone and began recording a cappella songs of his own invention.
Лексика
lead singer - ведущий певец
songwriter - автор песен
founder - основатель
atypical - нетипичный
statement - заявление
record-shattering - рекордное
tease - дразнить
invention – изобретение

My favorite singer: Ed Sheeran
Who is the first person you think of when somebody is talking about a male singer with red hair? What song had been played one hundred and fifty million since it was released a few years ago? Yep. It's Ed Sheeran and his best one – "Thinking out loud". When I heard Ed's voice for the first time, I was deeply attracted.
I fell in love with his voice in just seconds. Ed had talent in music from childhood. He joined the choir at four. And he was able to play the guitar at ten and started to write songs in junior high school.
He moved to London and started to make music in 2008. And he experienced many times in singing and performance. His works caught Elton John' and Jamie Foxx's attentions at that time, they became Ed's benefactors.
Ed is one of the most successful British singers.
Лексика
deeply attracted - глубоко привлечен
catch attentions - привлечь внимание
benefactors – благотворители

My favorite singer: Taylor Swift
I like Taylor Swift so much. She's a talent. I have been her fan for over three years now. Everything seems better when I listen to her songs.
Taylor currently plays a very important role in American music. No one would have believed that this small town girl would become a worldwide phenomenon. She first became famous as a top country music singer.
Her success came at a high price. She has been writing songs since she was 13 years old. She was trying hard to make her dream come true while other children of her age were playing, dating and having fun at parties.
She was repelled by her classmates at that time, so she expressed her thoughts by singing them. That's why so many people identify with her songs and they quickly spread around the world.
Many fans have been attracted by both her songs and personality. Her story encourages you never to lose yourself when you're in trouble.
Лексика
phenomenon – явление
to repel – отталкивать
to express – выражать
encourage – поощрять
