If you could meet a famous entertainer orathlete, who would that be, and why?
If given the chance to meet a famousentertainer or athlete, I would definitely choose Norah Jones, winner of 8Grammy Awards in 2003.
In the first place, as an amateur in jazzmusic, I would like to ask her for some tips in jazz performance. Since I firstheard her voice over the radio, I have been deeply attracted by her uniquevoice, a wonderful mixture of ease, leisure, laziness, a bit of everythingtogether. I’ve always been wondering how to effectively convey my feelingsthrough my voice. A talk with Norah Jones might hopefully give me some inklingand teach me how to make my songs sing for my soul.
Second, having previously known that NorahJones has been performing in a pub as a teenager, I would like to know moreabout her opinions on teenage working, both full-time and part-time. As auniversity student, I’m still struggling between my major and my true calling,which is music. I appreciate her opinions on whether I should follow my musicdreams or shall I just keep it a hobby. And if I were to chase my dream, isplaying for pubs the best choice? Since Norah Jones has more experience on thistopic, a meet with her might very well set my future road towards a steadydirection.
Third, since I personally admire NorahJones to a great extent, I would like to take her on a trip of my own country, China. China aboundswith natural scenery that differs from that of the States, a diversity ofarchitectural styles, different Chinese cuisines, and a host of passionatepeople. Taking a tour of our wonderful country and its distinct culture maygive Norah Jones some inspirations on musical creation. I would be overjoyed ifher trip to Chinawould contribute more or less to her next album. If not, I would still feelsatisfied, since few people can enjoy a trip with their idol. And what’s best,I can practice my oral English with her along the trip!
That’s why I look forward to meeting NorahJones, my favorite jazz singer and composer.
