James Horner was a Hollywood composer. He composed the music for famous films like The Titanic, The Karate Kid, Avatar, and Braveheart.

James Horner died in a plane crash in Southern California. He was flying his private aeroplane in a national forest. The plane was a five-passenger one, but only one set of remains were found.

The cause of the crash was not immediately known, and investigations continue.

Difficult words: composer (a person who composes – writes music), remains (the pieces of a dead body), continue (to go on, to not stop).
