marcMartel

Marc Martel was honored last night at the MTV O Awards 2 where fans across the country voted him the winner of Best Fan Cover.  Martel became a viral sensation when his “Somebody To Love Me” audition for the Queen Extravaganza drew over 4-million hits with his Freddie Mercury style vocals. Even Roger Taylor, drummer for Queen, called Martel, “an extraordinarily good singer who would make a wonderful Freddie,” during a recent Fox News interview. Martel wasn’t able to attend the online ceremony having just returned from an international tour in Norway, but sent a pre-taped acceptance speech thanking all of the wonderful fans who are supporting him.

Martel, who is the lead singer for rock band Downhere, will wrap up The Called To Love Tour that concludes November 13th and begin the group’s How Many Kings Christmas tour in Kansas City, KS on December 1st.

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
