    "Firstly, I would like to offer my sincere apologies for my absence over the last few weeks. There has been so much going on in my life that it has been hard to find time to do all that I have promised. I’m sure almost everyone has said to themselves ‘tomorrow, definitely tomorrow’ and then find 10 days have gone by. So, on that note I will get on with the questions." - Phoebe

    “It’s been 23 years since the world lost our beloved Freddie Mercury,” said Queen guitarist Brian May. “We’ve made extraordinary progress in the fight against AIDS in that time. But we cannot simply rest on the fact that the treatment is available. We must ensure that it is provided. Roger and I are proud to lend this rediscovered song to the (Coca-Cola) RED campaign, in the hope that Freddie’s powerful voice can inspire the world yet again.”

    Queen lead the charge with new AIDS awareness campaign

    COCA-COLA INVITES THE WORLD TO “SHARE THE SOUND OF AN AIDS FREE GENERATION” AND SUPPORT (RED)

    Campaign Features a Special Collaboration with Wyclef Jean & Avicii, New Music from Aloe Blacc, Exclusive Remix from OneRepublic, and a Previously Unreleased Song from Queen Featuring Freddie Mercury

    ATLANTA, Nov. 3, 2014 — The Coca-Cola Company, in partnership with (RED), invites people from all over the world to join efforts to help end mother-to-child transmission of HIV with the launch of a new campaign, titled “SHARE THE SOUND OF AN AIDS FREE GENERATION”. The campaign will feature an array of top artists as they debut new music, and offer exclusive experiences encouraging people to come together, to share, and most importantly—to give. Funds raised from the campaign will go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to finance grants which provide HIV prevention, testing, counseling, treatment, and care services.

    The month-long global program which runs through World AIDS Day on December 1st, 2014, shares a message of hope and unity to empower today’s youth to understand they can be the generation to end the AIDS pandemic. 650 babies are born every day with HIV, yet life-saving medication exists and costs as little as $.40 a day. That same medication can reduce the risk of an HIV-positive woman passing on the virus to her baby by 95%. In 2013, for the first time since the discovery of the virus, more people were newly added to treatment than were newly infected with HIV, a critical milestone marking the beginning of the end of AIDS.

    “One of the primary goals behind the movement of this campaign is to use the power of music to rally millennials in realizing that an AIDS Free generation is within reach,” said Emmanuel Seuge, Vice President, Global Alliances & Ventures, The Coca-Cola Company. “We are grateful to all of the artists who are joining us in this remarkable effort.”

    New Music

    The campaign kicks off with the debut of Queen’s “Let Me in Your Heart Again,” a previously unreleased song, mixed by William Orbit exclusively for the (Coca-Cola) RED campaign. The song features the iconic vocals of the late Freddie Mercury, who passed from AIDS in 1991. Each week, a new artist will unveil an original song which will be available to download on iTunes with proceeds benefitting the Global Fund at www.iTunes.com/REDSound. The tracks include:

     - “Let Me in Your Heart Again” (William Orbit Mix) by Queen featuring Freddie Mercury (Week of November 3) - Download now here on iTunes

    “It’s been 23 years since the world lost our beloved Freddie Mercury,” said Queen guitarist Brian May. “We’ve made extraordinary progress in the fight against AIDS in that time. But we cannot simply rest on the fact that the treatment is available. We must ensure that it is provided. Roger and I are proud to lend this rediscovered song to the (Coca-Cola) RED campaign, in the hope that Freddie’s powerful voice can inspire the world yet again.”

    Unique Experiences

    The Coca-Cola Company is dedicated to the fight to end HIV/AIDS. Since 2006, The Coca-Cola Company and its foundations have committed over $15 million in the fight to end AIDS through awareness, education and prevention. In 2011, The Coca-Cola Company initially pledged $5 million to the Global Fund through the partnership with (RED) and has recently raised its commitment by an additional $2 million donation directly to the Global Fund. This year, Coca-Cola will leverage the size and scale of the system to rally for the cause, ultimately activating this campaign in over 40 countries worldwide.

    "Incredible things have happened in the fight against AIDS, bringing the pandemic to a tipping point. There is much to celebrate, but we must also renew our vow to wrestle this virus to the point it becomes part of our history not our present, said Bono, (RED) co-founder. (RED) partners like Coca-Cola are on (RED) alert this World AIDS Day to keep the pressure up, with the help of longtime AIDS activists Queen, and musicians Avicii, Deadmau5, Wyclef Jean, Aloe Blacc and OneRepublic. Music fans have been a real army in the fight against AIDS, we hope this campaign will swell the ranks.”

    A Duet with Freddie Mercury & Luciano Pavarotti

    Marc Martel: "A duet of two of my favorite musical influences, Freddie Mercury and Luciano Pavarotti. This is one continuous performance from start to finish, shot in one take, using two cameras. No audio has been cut or replaced. I added the “Pavarotti” harmony for "Vincero, Vincero!" afterwards, since I have yet to master singing in both voices simultaneously. Stay tuned, though."

Hello and welcome to the new official Freddie Mercury website!

A TRIBUTE TO FREDDIE MERCURY

In 1974 I became aware of Queen because of the single "Killer Queen" and I was infected with the Queen virus due to the uniqueness of the voice and the emanation of Freddie Mercury. Because of my childlike age of 11 ...
