“You are the champions”, A message from Queen and Adam Lambert to those on the front lines in the fight against Covid-19
“To all you frontline warriors fighting coronavirus around the world, you are champions”, this is the message that Queen and Adam Lambert want to give to all healthcare professionals and for those who are every day on the front lines in the fight against Covid- 19.
Innovatively collaborating via Instagram between London, Cornwall and Los Angeles, Brian May, Roger Taylor and Adam Lambert in their respective homes recorded a spontaneous new version of Queen’s classic anthem with some subtle changes.
Since the beginning of the isolation period, a consequence of the pandemic caused by the new coronavirus, Bryan May and Roger Taylor have shared small concerts, on social media.
The idea of changing from “We” to “You“, in the song “We Are The Champions”, was Adam Lambert‘s and the video clip highlights the work of health professionals, starting with images of places like London, Paris, the Chinese wall or the beaches of California, always empty, and then scenes recorded in hospitals with health professionals and patients.
All the proceeds are going right towards Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organisation (WHO).
