Billie Eilish is an American singer and songwriter. She is eighteen years old. Her career starts in 2016. She is very famous and popular.

Last weekend, Eilish wins four awards at the Grammy Awards. This is an event where singers and bands get awards for their good work.

Eilish writes an album with her brother. They record the album in their home. They win a Grammy award for it. They are shocked and happy. They do not think that they can win.

It is a special night. Eilish wins four main awards. She is the first woman in history to do it.

Difficult words: award (a prize that somebody gets for good work), event (a planned public meeting), shocked (very surprised).
