R- Kelly ‘ The world's greatest’

Extracts from this document...


English Media Assignment The first video watched by my class was R- Kelly ' The worlds greatest'. You can tell from the title of the song that it is about Muhammad Ali who was known as being the world's greatest boxer of all time.

There was a wide range of crescendos and diminuendos used, and when the song was coming to an end there was poco - rit, which brought the song to a final close. At the end of the song there was a 'THE END' written which is a classic trademark of western films at the end. ...read more.
