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.

Mark......couldn't agree with you more. It is downright EERIE how much Martel sounds like Mercury. He even looks like Freddie with a similar jaw line and upper lip. Now he just needs to wear front teeth extensions ; ) I notice he is starting to grow a mustache as well!

Absolutely awesome, I hope he gets the gig, much better option that Lady Gaga...
