We’ve read countless stories listing the distressing impact COVID-19 has had on the world. However, we think it’s time for some positive news! 

Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor, alongside (virtually, of course) singer Adam Lambert have recorded a new version of the Queen classic, We Are The Champions.

As you know, Brian May and Roger Taylor have been performing pop-up concerts from their respective homes while in lockdown and the seeds of this new May, Taylor and Lambert version of We Are The Champions were sown when May posted a MicroCon invitation to jam with him on the classic Queen track on his Instagram.

Taylor was first to respond, followed by Lambert who in his at-home performance changed the lyric mid-song to You Are The Champions.

Overwhelmed with calls for the track to be made available to download, the resulting ‘virtual jam’ is available now on all streaming and download services.

Proceeds raised from the track will go to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organisation (WHO), powered by the United Nations Foundation. The Fund provides tools and resources to health workers on the frontlines globally, including PPE, testing kits, trainings, and more.
