Writeacher, I need to rephrase a few verbs related to film stars. I also wanted to prepare a sort of vocabulary to be used when describing music groups.
Can you suggest a website? Thank you very much.
1) She's been involved in show business (?) since she was 7 years old, when she won a talent contest.
2) She first auditioned for a band at the age of eight.
Her big break came (I need to rephrase this) in 1997, when she signed a record contract.
3) After that, her group released (synonym?) several best-selling albums and in the years that followed (in the following years?) they became the most popular female group of all time.
4) They broke up (synonym: split up?) in 2005.Since then, she has had a very successful solo career (rephrase: "solo career").
5) She has already starred in box-office successes (rephrase?) such as Dreamgirls.
to record, to film, to be named etc.
