Somewhere in heaven, Freddie Mercury is probably grinning from ear to ear.
Not only is there a new biopic about the former Queen lead singer’s life in theaters now, but a video of one tiny fan singing “Bohemian Rhapsody” is taking the internet by storm. Little Holly Lee is only 3 years old, but she already knows all the words to the epic rock ballad and she simply can’t stop singing it.
Holly’s mom, Charlene McMahon, says she first introduced her daughter to the song while on a long car ride about three months go.
Charlene said, “She was bored in the car and I was trying to entertain her. It’s the only song I knew all the words to so I started singing it. Since then she loves watching the video and singing it. She watches the video about five or six times a week and sings the song three or four times a day.”
One September afternoon, Charlene was in the car with Holly and her 1-year-old son, Ruaridh Lee, waiting for the kids’ father to get out of work. Charlene pulled out her cell phone and proceeded to film Holly in action, and the resulting video is simply adorable.
“She bounces about and when it’s the bit with the heads she just sings and tries to do everyone’s different voices – the high pitch and the low pitch,” Charlene said with a chuckle. “It’s so funny when she comes out with these words like ‘monstrosity.'”
Holly was an instant hit. Charlene’s Facebook video has now been shared hundreds of thousands of times, and it’s still gaining momentum.
The proud mom gushed, “People were commenting saying … they’re impressed that she knows all the words. It’s funny because she’s the shyest little girl ever. If someone comes up and asks her to sing she won’t do it … She likes to do it in the house but not in front of an audience.”
Not only does Holly nail every word of the song, which she referred to as “the Galileo song” before she learned how to pronounce the actual title, but she even gets the all-important headbanging chorus down pat.
Nailed it! Holly, all we can say is, “We’re not worthy!”
Charlene says Holly can’t wait to see the new Queen movie, and while she loves the fact that her little girl likes to sing, she’s still holding out hope that she’ll eventually get into something a little more typical for a Scottish lass her age: Highland dancing. Whatever she winds up doing, we’re absolutely positive it will be epic.
