Marc Martel Does Freddy Mercury Vocals On 11/05 Bohemian Rhapsody Movie

Wednesday October 24th, 2018


Marc Martel, star of the Queen endorsed ‘The Ultimate Queen Celebration’, will be heard as part of Freddie Mercury’s vocals for Rami Malek’s performance as the Queen singer in the upcoming biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.

Marc was chosen as the Queen singer by Brian May and Roger Taylor for the Queen tribute Queen Extravaganza and now performs for The Ultimate Queen Celebration show.

“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,” Marc tells Noise11.com. “I got to go to Abbey Road for a few weeks and do some recording there. It was the first time for me to see behind the curtain in the music industry. It was really fascinating fun and a very memorable experience”.

Marc laid down his vocals at Abbey Road before Malek started work as Freddie for the movie. “The way it works in movies the actor will perform their part based on the music. All of the music was prepared before shooting. It was fun, demanding, it could a little bit tedious at times but it was all very good and all very worth it”.

The music for the soundtrack will still be the original music of Queen, but with the mixed vocals. “Queen offered all of their original tracks to the movie,” he said. “The movie will be using a mixture of Freddie’s tracks and me and Rami. It will all be done in a way you can’t tell”.
