65,000 Fans Start Singing Queen Song In Unison & The Sound Is Hauntingly Beautiful.

Attending a live performance of your favorite band is something everyone should experience at least once. After all, you never know when something magical might happen.

On July 1, 2017, American band Green Day was getting ready to rock out in front of a sold-out crowd in London’s Hyde Park. There were over 65,000 people in attendance, and they were getting restless as they waited for the band to take the stage. The sun started to set, casting a rosy glow around the audience, and then something incredible happened.


The crowd began to sing.

The PA system had been playing music to keep people entertained in between acts, but when Queen’s iconic rock ballad “Bohemian Rhapsody” came on, everyone spontaneously joined in on an unprecedented sing-along that somehow stirs up deep emotions.

Perhaps this impromptu moment happened because everybody knows the words, in spite of the fact that the song debuted over 40 years ago.

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality
Open your eyes,
Look up to the skies and see,
I’m just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
Because I’m easy come, easy go
Little high, little low
Any way the wind blows doesn’t really matter to me, to me.

Or perhaps the London crowd was remembering one of their most famous and beloved musicians. Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of Queen, made this song famous.

With his stunning four-octave vocal range and animated stage persona, Freddie was a beloved fixture in British rock until his death in 1991, at age 45.

No matter what the cause, one thing is for sure: watching all of these people join together in song will give you goosebumps. It’s just a stunningly raw moment that connects thousands of people like only music can.


Later, Green Day took the stage, and the band recognized how special the Queen moment had been. After the show, Green Day uploaded the clip of the crowd singing “Bohemian Rhapsody” to their YouTube page so that everyone could share this unique and faith-affirming experience.
