Wait, What?! Did Freddie Lend You His Precious Voice?!!!
Yup, that’s right. This dude right here did a cover of one of Queen’s classic “We Are The Champion.” And he nailed it, like having Freddie Mercury back doing his stuff, singing his song, and killing us with awesomeness! — Yeah, that’s what he did!
Meet Marc Martel, a Canadian Christian rock musician. He was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Marc Martel was chosen as the Queen singer by Brian May and Roger Taylor for the Queen tribute Queen Extravaganza, and he now performs as the man singer for The Ultimate Queen Celebration show.
“They hired me to do some of the singing in the movie and give the audience an immersive experience and not be able to tell where the singing is coming from. It is to make the audience believe they are really watching Freddie Mercury sing,” Marc told. “I got to go to Abbey Road for a few weeks and do some recording there. It was the first time for me to see behind the curtain in the music industry. It was really fascinating fun and a very memorable experience”.
Watch the video below and be amazed by how incredible he is, I’m pretty sure Freddie Mercury would be so very proud of this young man’s talent.
Marc Martel will perform for ‘The Ultimate Queen Celebration’ across Australia starting August 28.
