The LAHT is reporting that for the first time since Freddie Mercury passed away (18 years ago -- in 1991) Spanish soprano Montserrat Caballé will sing again "Barcelona". The legendary, iconic "Barcelona" (one of the songs from the album of the same name, which was released in 1988) was composed by Freddie Mercury to be the theme song for the Barcelona 1992 Summer Olympics. Sadly, Mercury died before the Olympics, and at the opening ceremony, Barcelona-native Montserrat sang it in virtual duet with Mercury in a voice over.
The Spanish soprano will perform the song in a benefit concert in Moscow next week with daughter Montserrat Marti at her side. Russian tenor Nikolai Baskov will also be there to sing the duet, "Barcelona", standing in for the late Freddie Mercury. Go here for the legendary song (embedding disabled).
