Many can try, but not a lot of people can pull off Queen's songs to a tee, let alone their rock 'n' roll hit "Bohemian Rhapsody". 

But there's one guy who was seemingly gifted with all the tools to follow the late Freddie Mercury's footsteps. Singer Marc Martel, whose recent cover of "Bohemian Rhapsody" went viral, will get you in the mood as Queen's biopic arrives in Philippine theaters.

Not only does he bear a striking resemblance to the Queen frontman, he also sounds like him too! What's even more impressive is that he did it all in just one take. Watch his flawless rendition of the 6-minute masterpiece right here.

The Canadian singer first caught the attention of fans and the surviving members of Queen themselves, Brian May and Roger Taylor, after his audition video for the Queen Extravaganza went viral on YouTube in 2011. He ended up being one of the competition's winners and has continued touring for the tribute show since 2015.

Martel also contributed vocal recordings used by Rami Malek for Bohemian Rhapsody - hitting Philippine cinemas on October 31st - and honestly, there's no better guy for the job.
