Rufus Wainright is a singer/songwriter famous for songs such as 'Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk' and his cover of 'Hallelujah'. I really enjoy his music and his unusual voice. Here is an interview with him that appeared in UK newspaper 'The Guardian' last year. All you need to do is match the interviewer's questions with his answers. This is excellent for practising your reading comprehension. Let us know how you get on!
