Describe a band or a singer that you like

When and where you heard them for the first time;
And explain why you like them
I’d like to talk about one of my idols named Mao Buyi282 He’s a famous singer and songwriter in our country. He mainly sings and plays pop music, although he does perform folk music283 from time to time.
I discovered him about two years ago when one of his songs called “A Normal Day” went viral on the internet284. The song is about his pursuit of a normal life as he struggles to escape his fast-paced and stressful lifestyle. I became obsessed with285 the song because of its appealing melody286 and its touching lyrics287.
It was after hearing that song that I began to familiarize myself with Mao and his songs. What really piques my interest about Mao is that he isn’t really known for anything but288 his songs. In fact, he’s far from handsome. He looks a little chubby289 and wears glasses. If you don’t know him, you might think he’s an ordinary IT guy and wouldn’t think of him as a musician.
Despite his regular looks, his works are outstanding. He’s extremely creative and has written tons of beautiful and touching songs, which has helped him grow a population of true die-hard fans290. I consider myself a loyal fan of his, too, because of his talents. I must say that he’ s one of the most innovative figures in the field of entertainment. He works hard and always comes up with fantastic ideas, which will definitely help him become the best of the best in the long haul291.
