The Next Lead Singer of Queen?
Marc Martel, lead singer of the Christian band Downhere, nails his Freddie Mercury gig
Queen's drummer has launched a talent search to play the role of the late Freddie Mercury for the upcoming Queen Extravaganza tour. Far as I'm concerned, the search is over:
Three more amazing videos showcasing Martel's voice -- from more Queen ("Bohemian Rhapsody", to a CCM classic (Keith Green's "Asleep in the Light"), to opera (Pavarotti staple "Nessun Dorma"). As one of the commenters said on one of these videos, Martel is "the Swiss army knife of singing." Yup, I'd agree.
