Text: “ Music in our life “ • People cannot live without music. They listen to music , dance to music or learn to play musical instruments. There is music everywhere : at home , in a concert hall , in the park , at the seaside , in the forest or even in the street. Music is not only a combination of pleasant sounds. It is an art which reflects life. Music reflects people’s ideals and emotions.
In this world of ours , filled with conflicts , tragedies , joys and hopes , music strives to speak to people of what is most important , urgent and poignant. Music in the lives of different people is different : some compose music , others play music , and others only listen to it. Different people like different kinds of music. You may prefer pop or rock music , country or folk music , classical music or jazz , but you certainly cannoy think of a day without music. It is a great pleasure to be able to play an instrument and I like it a lot.
Text: “My favorite singer” • Elvis Presley came from a very poor family. He was born on the 8 th of January, 1935 in Mississippi. • Elvis loved music. He went to church every Sunday and sang in the choir. • One day in 1954 he went to a recording studio called Sun Records. He wanted to make a record for his mother's birthday. The secretary at the studio, Marion Keisker, heard Elvis and she told her boss, Sam Phillips. • Elvis was just what Sam Phillips dreamed about: "a white boy with a black voice".
• Phillips became Elvis's manager and Elvis made his first single — "That's All Right, Mama". • In 1955 Elvis appeared on TV in New York. • In 1958 Elvis joined the American army and went to Germany. • Elvis was a millionaire, but he was a very lonely man. In his last years he became fat and depressed. He died of a heart attack on the 16 th of August, 1977 in his mansion at Graceland, Memphis. • But for his millions of fans Elvis is still the King, the King of Rock'n'Roll.
