Cue Card Topic: Describe a famous person you know…

Sample script:

Celine Dion is my idol. She was born and raised in Quebec, Canada. She started her singing career at the age of 12.

At the beginning, Celine was only singing in her family’s restaurant, but very soon, her tape was sent to a music manager Rene Angelil who later on became her husband. Rene was so impressed and was moved to tears by Celine’s voice, so he decided to help Celine with her career. Therefore, Celine Dion became a rising star in Canada.

Before 1990, Celine couldn’t speak English properly, so all of her albums were in French. But as a fast learner, Celine started to sing in English in 1990 and penetrated the US market very quickly. So far practically the majority of her songs became big hits and so many of them won awards for her. Nearly all her French and English albums have been really well-liked worldwide.

I like Celine Dion so much because she is talented and has a good sense of humour. In 2010 I went to Las Vegas to see her live show, and it was really a marvellous experience! Celine performed five nights a week in Las Vegas at that time, which truly amazed me. As a successful singer, she has been hardworking all her life. Whenever she releases a new album, I am always the first person to purchase it, so apparently, I am her huge fan.

Celine learned English as a second language very well, which also encourages me to learn English well. She is a real role model for me. I am also interested in music because that’s my passion, too. I hope I can also have some success in this industry in the future.
