Why Freddie Mercury Was the Greatest Singer Who Ever Lived?

“When I'm performing I'm an extrovert, yet inside I'm a completely different man.”

The first trailer of Freddie Mercury’s biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” dropped last night. And from the looks of it, Rami Malek has perfectly embodied Freddie’s persona.

Born as Farrokh Bulsara to Gujarati parents from India, Freddie lived his early days in India and Tanzania. At the age of 17, Freddie and his family moved to England, where he sold second-hand clothes with his girlfriend Mary Austin. He also played with several bands before he finally joined Queen and took over the world.

So, why is Freddie considered as the greatest singer of all time? His flamboyant performances were ahead of his time. His voice was able to reach notes that were almost impossible to sing. He sang with an incisive sense of rhythm. He wrote lyrics with revolutionary words; unlocking the truths of pain, life, love, and everything else.

Here are the reasons that made Freddie an immortal legend.
