They Removed Background Music In Queen’s ‘We Are The Champions,’ The A Cappella Result Is Pure Magic.

Freddie Mercury singing

There are few entertainers whose talents stand the test of time. But Queen’s Freddie Mercury is undisputedly one of the greatest singers in rock-n-roll music. He was, and is known for a voice with an uncanny knack to captivate the masses with his unmatched versatile ability.

It turns out that Mercury had a passion for the opera as well. The performance was filmed in 1988 when the Olympic flag arrived in Barcelona in preparation for the 92′ summer Olympics. Mercury took the stage with Madame Caballe, a friend and world-renowned opera singer, with the classic anthem “How Can I Go On?†The performance and subsequent record release was a smash hit and cemented Mercury as one of the most prolific performers of our time.

24 years after his passing, it can be easy to forget just how much of an extraordinary talent Mercury was. But this clip from live performances and studio session of “We Are The Champions”isolates Mercury’s vocals from the band’s instruments, showing just how much of a musical legend this man was… and is to this day.

Hearing Mercury’s voice singled out is a chill worthy experience. See for yourself in the video below!
