Listening to music is a very popular leisure activity for many people nowadays including me. My favorite singer is Taylor Swift who is actually a famous American country singer. In China these days you can hear foreign music almost everywhere including the radio and on TV.
My first time that I heard Taylor Swift’s music was when I was with my best friend and we decided to watch Taylor Swift’s concert on DVD at her house because my she liked Taylor Swift very much. The first song I heard her sing was “Love Story”. After I heard this song I instantly fell in love with Taylor Swift and I also enjoyed her other songs too, she is a really top notch singer. When I got home I hurriedly searched for her on the internet and downloaded a few of her songs.
I like Taylor Swift’s music because of 3 main reasons. Firstly she has a magnificent voice every time I hear it, it makes me very calm. Secondly she is a country singer who are not very common in this day and age, this makes her unique. Thirdly she is very elegant in the way she sings which reflects her sophistication. After my first time listening to her music I have always been a fan and I even recommended her music to all my friends.
