IELTS Speaking topic: A person in the news that you would like to meet

Describe a person in the news that you would like to meet.
You should say:
who he or she is
what this person shows up on TV
how you know this person
and explain why you want to meet them.

I would say that I’d like to meet the incredibly famous Chinese pop singer, Jay Chou, whom is often seen in the entertainment channel on TV. He grew up in a single-parent family. When he was a little boy Jay didn’t get good grades at school. His mother was really concerned about him, but he just looked on the bright side. When he felt down or lonely, he always looked for nice music to cheer him up.

I firstly knew him in 2000 when he released his first album “Jay”, in which his soft voice was so unique and this album turned out to be an instant hit. I was really impressed by his voice, talent and versatility in music.

His music is always original, and sometimes blends with different genres, like R&B, hip-hop, and folk music. That’s why I simply adore him and just want to meet him in person. Recently it seemed like he was really into giving his songs some traditional Chinese appeal, like he did in “The Porcelain”.
