MARC MARTEL not only sounds spot-on like Freddie Mercury, but also embodies the heart and soul Freddie poured into every song. After hearing Martel’s astonishing audition video – a cover of “Somebody to Love,” which has since garnered over 13 million views on YouTube –Queen’s Roger Taylor and Brian May handpicked the singer to take on lead vocals for this Queen tribute tour.“That voice. You listen, close your eyes and you think it’s Freddie. It’s really uncanny,” says Taylor.
In addition to all the hits, THE ULTIMATE QUEEN CELEBRATION also incorporates an entirely unique angle that will have fans clamoring to hear several other sides of Martel. “Near the end of Freddie’s life, he explored other styles of music beyond rock, including opera, so with that in mind, the show also includes a segment of familiar songs in the flavor of what they might have sounded like had Freddie ever gotten the chance to sing them,” Martel explains. “For instance, I perform ‘Ave Maria’ by myself on piano and also the great opera aria ‘Nessun Dorma’ in the style of Freddie, so it gives the night some imaginative elements in the spirit of Queen, rather than strictly the letter of Queen. You could call it a greatest hits show with a twist where I get to explore other things that I wish Freddie could have recorded himself and wonder what could have been.”
