    Smile will vs will be

    Hi Teacher,
    I can not mark the difference between "will" and "will be" .I know the grammer rule ,and the situation to use it .But I hv doubt.

    Example 1:

    I am jeni.I would be singing a song for u.

    Why cant we say like :

    I am Jeni.I will sing a song for u.

    Is there any strict rule.Which is more natural.If there is difference,please give some more example showing when to use what .

    You could say "I will be singing a song for you".

    In the first sentence you've demonstrated that you can use "you" correctly.
    We also don't normally say "I'll be doing something now". This is always a sign of futurity - even if it means, "I will be doing that as soon as the noise stops."
