10,000 Queen fans from more than 120 countries submitted their renditions of three of the band’s classics, and the videos are officially here.
Queen and YouTube Music teamed up with Universal Music Group and Hollywood Records to celebrate “Bohemian Rhapsody” becoming the first pre-1990s video to reach one billion YouTube views by enlisting worldwide fans to create music videos for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Don’t Stop Me Now” and “A Kind Of Magic” as part of the You Are The Champions initiative.
The result is a massive music collaboration that showcases Queen’s limitless influence. “Glad you could all join us. Welcome,” the band’s Roger Taylor said of the creation.
“It’s one of the most rewarding things that can happen to an artist of any kind: to see that our work has inspired folk all around the world to create their own performances and visual art is a thrill,” Brian May added. “And the diversity of their vision is astonishing. Big thanks to everyone who participated.”
Watch all three videos below. “Bohemian Rhapsody” focuses on singers/performers, “Don’t Stop Me Now” focuses on dancers and “A Kind Of Magic” is a montage of bespoke work from visual artists.
