My daughter and I saw Bohemian Rhapsody this weekend and came straight home to listen to Queen real loud. As we were digging around YouTube, we came across this incredible "Bohemian Rhapsody" cover by Canadian artist Marc Martel. Turns out he's the guy the band's Brian May and Roger Taylor endorsed to travel the world singing as Freddie Mercury in the tribute show, The Ultimate Queen Celebration. He's also the guy whose vocals were mixed in with the isolated tracks from studio recordings of Mercury himself for use in the film. Watch the video and I think you'll see why they chose him. What talent!
He told Noise11.com:
"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...
The way it works in movies the actor will perform their part based on the music. All of the music was prepared before shooting..."
And he told Metro:
"It is an amalgamation of a few voices. But predominantly it is my hope and the hope of everyone that we will hear as much Freddie as possible. I think that is the goal for all of us."
Jewish a cappella group Six13 spun their own adaptation of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” in their delightful “Bohemian Chanukah.”: Is this the eighth night We light with family? Recall with great pride Our escape from Greek tyranny? Kindle the lights Remember the Maccabees How did those five boys Lead us to victory? Thanks, Jake!
This is too silly not to share. Like the headline reads, it’s Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” featuring the vocals of “Mr. Chicken,” an (extra)ordinary squeaky rubber chicken. Thank you, YouTuber Franco Muñoz for bringing us this much-needed laugh. (The Awesomer) Previously: Despacito performed by a rubber chicken
