Queen's Freddie Mercury To Be Made Into Angry Bird
The late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury has been made into an Angry Bird. The animation will be released today to mark the singer's birthday as part of the Freddie For A Day fundraiser, which is organised by his Queen bandmates Brian May and Roger Taylor to raise money for the Mercury Phoenix Trust - Fighting Aids Worldwide. So far the charity has raised over $15 million since its inception in 1992. The video will be made available on Angry Bird creator Rovio's YouTube channel from 1pm (BST). The puzzle game, featuring animated birds, is the top selling paid-for app of all time. A Freddie Mercury Angry Bird T-shirt will also be available to buy with a portion of the proceeds to be donated to the Mercury Phoenix Trust. You can watch a specially-created animation of the Freddie Mercury Angry Bird below. Earlier this year (July 16), Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" was voted as the UK's favourite Number One single. The poll, carried out by the Official Charts Company, asked pepople to vote for their favourite UK Number One single of the past 60 years. The 1975 single sold over one million copies during its initial nine-week stint at Number One.
Thanks to NME for the report.
