Downhere’s lead singer, Marc Martel, has become a youtube sensation, as Martel entered the Queen Extravaganza contest with his rendition of Queen’s hit, Somebody To Love, which can be viewed at www.queenextravaganza.com/auditions/. His recording is the top video in the Queen Extravaganza auditions with over a million hits and as of yesterday was the 18th most viewed video of the day. The Wall Street Journal has just interviewed him because of this tremendous response. The winner of the contest will tour with Queen in honor of the band’s 40th anniversary. Martel has an amazing voice and a striking vocal resemblance to Queen’s lead singer, the late Freddie Mercury.
He really does an awesome job. Check it out (without having to search through all the other entries):
