This Vocal Only Version of We Are The Champions is Pitch-Perfect

Fact of the day: Freddie Mercury was one of the only recording artists in history to have a five-octave vocal range.

It’s no wonder he’s constantly voted the best rock vocalist of all time.

Biographer David Bret described his voice as "escalating within a few bars from a deep, throaty rock-growl to tender, vibrant tenor, then on to a high-pitched, perfect coloratura, pure and crystalline in the upper reaches."

Playback.fm have now isolated the vocals from a live performance and combined it with footage of four shows to highlight just how impressive Freddie’s vocals are.

The performance is absolutely pitch perfect. They sure don’t make them like this anymore.
