Members of Queen and out singer Adam Lambert have released a re-recorded version of Queen’s iconic song “We Are the Champions” to honor and support health care professionals on the front lines fighting COVID-19.
Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor join forces with Lambert on the new version of the track, “You Are The Champions” in the hopes of showing solidarity with those affected by COVID-19 and making a difference.
Proceeds from the track will go to the COVID-29 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.
“As a father with a daughter in the front line, I am ultra-aware of the vital work they are doing daily to save us and our society,” Taylor said, according to an emailed press release. “Their bravery and sacrifice must not be prejudiced by anything less than a one hundred percent effort by our governments to protect them. They are precious to us all and they are truly our champions.”
“It is with the deepest gratitude to all of those on the frontline all over the world that we dedicate our performance,” Lambert said. “Thank you for keeping us safe, we are in awe of your bravery and strength.”
Queen and Adam Lambert’s “You Are The Champions” is available on all streaming and download services.
