When you think of the band Queen, what comes to mind? Is it one of the 18 number-one singles the band released? Or perhaps it’s the energetic performances the band was known for (their energy and high tempo actually led to one of their songs being named the happiest song in the world, according to a neuroscientist). If you’re like me, Queen is all about the stunning vocals of frontman Freddie Mercury. Mercury’s four-octave vocal range was constantly on display in many of the band’s smash hits, including “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Killer Queen,” “Somebody to Love,” and “Don’t Stop Me Now.” One of their most famous songs, however, is “We Are The Champions.” In the following video, you’ll hear a version of this song with the audio stripped out, leaving only Freddie Mercury’s outstanding voice. And while we love the music that accompanies Mercury on every song, hearing him perform a capella really allows you to appreciate just how magnificent of a singer he was. Check out the performance below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
