Marc Martel, a talented Canadian musician, is often considered the reincarnation of Freddie Mercury, and some even speak of a “hidden son”.

You only have to judge for yourself on this video:
Of course, such talent did not go unnoticed. Roger Taylor, Queen’s drummer, invited Marc to the Queen Extravaganza project to be one of the singers.
