Model Answer:
My country, Bangladesh, has produced some really celebrated singers over the years. While all of these celebrated singers have managed to leave their distinct marks in the cultural arena of Bangladesh, one name probably deserves a bit more praise than the others. And the name of this renowned singer is Runa Laila.

Now, it is certainly worth noting that Runa Laila is very much like a household name in South Asia, and she has remained so for more or less over the last 50 years. Born in the year 1952 in erstwhile East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), this Bangladeshi playback singer and composer started her career in the Pakistani film industry in the late 60s, recording over 10,000 songs in 18 languages. 

Being regarded very rightly as a melody queen, this versatile songbird has managed to captivate the minds and hearts of all kinds of people from all ages and backgrounds with her magical voice. Whether it is the modern, classical, pop, traditional, Ghazals (devotional) country or folklore songs, this talented singer just knows how to lift the hearts and minds of her fans with her evergreen and charismatic voice. However, even though people of all ages like to hear the songs of Runa Laila, she is probably a bit more popular among the relatively youth because of her brisk, restless or “swift-moving” voice. Indeed, in her decorated career, Runa Laila, as an epitome of uniqueness and style icon, has achieved such height of fame and recognition that most artists can only dream of. 

Anyway, Runa Laila is my favourite singer, mainly because she is not only talented but also knows how to keep improving her musical style relentlessly. Besides, she is also one of those singers whose attention doesn’t only revolve around her love for music, but she values her roots and tradition tremendously also. After all, she is an artist who refused all kinds of lucrative financial deals from another country to remain in her own country and culture.
