- Why you want to meet the person.
I’m dying to meet one of my idols, named Ed Sheeran. He’s a famous singer and songwriter in the UK.
I discovered him about five years ago when his song, “Photograph” went viral on the internet. The song is all about understanding and exploring the concept of love, especially the love he feels for his family. It’s quite an emotional song and often reminds me of the ones I love when I listen to it. I became obsessed with the song because of its appealing melody and its touching lyrics.
It was after hearing “Photograph” that I began to familiarize myself with Ed Sheeran and his songs. What is most interesting about Ed is that he isn’t really known for anything but his songs. In fact, he’s far from handsome. He looks a little chubby and has ginger hair. If you don’t know him, you might think he’s just an ordinary guy and wouldn’t peg him as being a musician.
Despite his regular looks, his works are outstanding. He’s extremely creative and has written tons of beautiful songs. I consider myself a loyal fan of his because of his talents. I really hope I can meet him in person one day. I would ask him to take a selfie with me and brag about that for the rest of my life. I also have a few questions to ask him, like where he gets inspiration for his songs. I’m curious about his motivations when it comes to songwriting.
