Like other celebrities, legendary rock band Queen and American Idol finalist Adam Lambert are in quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the quarantine did not stop them from rendering one of the band's most famous single, "We Are the Champions."
We Are The Champions Livestream
The band and Lambert made a new cover of the hit single "We Are the Champions". The video was done in their own homes, and they compiled their videos into one collage. Rolling Stone obtained the video, which was also on guitarist Brian May's Instagram account.
"#youarethechampions," May captioned the post. "This version is for those of you who like things to be the right way up!"
In the video, Lambert was teamed up with both May and Queen drummer Roger Taylor. May played the bass guitar; Lambert provided rich harmony vocals and layered guitars of studio cut.
May remains active on social media during the pandemic. He offers a tutorial on how to play a guitar solo using the single "Bohemian Rhapsody." He is also sharing performances of other classics like "Hammer to Fall" and challenge his fans to be with him. He also urged his fans to stay in their homes to observe quarantine measures.
Lambert, on the other hand, is supposed to be in the live stream of Together in Pride: You Are Not Alone of the group GLAAD. The live stream is scheduled on Sunday, April 26, on the Facebook and YouTube pages of the group. Aside from him, there will be appearances from Billy Eichner, Kathy Griffin, Lilly Singh, and Bebe Rexha. Kesha and Melissa Etheridge will also perform. The topic of the show is about the response of the LGBTQ community to COVID-19.
