Marc Martel is touring New Zealand. He stopped by two New Zealand TV shows "The Project NZ" and "The AM Show". Marc did live one-take Don't Stop Me Now and small a-capella improvisations in the second part of the video.
"Bohemian Rhapsody" Movie Producer Graham King about Marc:
"Rami sings a little bit in the film, there's a lot of Freddie Mercury obviously, and a lot of Marc Martel. He sent a video to Brian May and Roger Taylor and he sounds exactly like Freddie Mercury. We knew that we had someone we could use for parts that maybe Rami couldn't do and obviously Freddie didn't do. So we were in Abbey Road recording studio for maybe two and a half months with Marc and with Rami, recording bits and pieces that we knew we needed. It's hard to find someone who can sing like Freddie Mercury and I'm not sure the movie would have happened if we didn't have Marc."
AIDS: From Freddie Mercury to Liberal Religious Dogma
A disease which specifically targeted certain sexual behaviours has now become part of the liberal metapolitical canon. But a religion that depends on an adherence to unhealthy beliefs cannot last for long...
Marc's notes: Benjamin Franklin once said, "Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, and half shut afterwards." I think maybe he learned that in romance, you subject yourself to being hurt, which can only be overcome by the power of forgiveness. I'm not talking about abuse here - that's a different topic. This is the everyday tension that pulls and pushes two people seeking to put the other's needs ahead of their own. If you haven't checked out my album "Impersonator" yet, here's one of my favorite tracks from it.
Quite fittingly, Crystal helped me make this video. Enjoy!
