“That voice. You listen, close your eyes and you think it’s Freddie.
It’s really uncanny”
– Roger Taylor

Whose is that voice you can hear in the trailer for the upcoming movie Bohemian Rhapsody?

Actor Rami Malek who plays Freddie Mercury in the film, says it’s a combination of himself, Freddie Mercury and a ‘sound- a- like’. That ‘sound-a- like’ is Marc Martel.

Martel has a naturally uncanny vocal likeness to Freddie Mercury and he’s headed our way next month in The Ultimate Queen Celebration, supported by a group of master musicians. It will be the closest you will get to hear the original Queen sound.

Don’t take our word for it, YouTube Marc Martel and be prepared to be stunned!

14 million reasons why Queen loves him
A successful musician in his own right, Marc came to prominence when auditioning as a singer for Queen’s Roger Taylor and Brian May’s official tribute band, Queen Extravaganza back in 2012. His audition received over 14 million you tube views and resulted in a performance on Ellen.

Needless to say Marc was handpicked by Roger Taylor and Brian May to front Queen Extravaganza and has toured with them internationally for a number of years.

With this new project, Ultimate Queen Celebration, Marc says, “I get a little more artistic freedom in this show. I feel like I have a good feel for how Freddie interpreted the music. Later in life, he branched out and did his own things, a few covers and some opera. I’ll pick a couple of songs that I wish Freddie recorded in his lifetime and perform them along with the songs that these legendary artists made famous including “Radio Gaga,” “Tie Your Mother Down,” “Fat Bottomed Girls,” “Killer Queen,” “Somebody to Love,” “Bohemian Rhapsody” and many more.

You only need to hear Marc’s recordings on You Tube to realise the incredible closeness to the late great Freddie Mercury’s vocal.

He has recently performed for Celine Dion, who is a huge fan – and has just performed five sold out concerts with Mexico’s Philharmonic Orchestra.
