Queen + Adam Lambert – ‘You Are The Champions’
“That means the doctors, nurses, cleaners, porters, drivers, tea-ladies and gentlemen, and all who are quietly risking their lives daily to save the lives of our kin. CHAMPIONS ALL!!!”
In an interview with the BBC, he railed against shortages of protective equipment for healthcare workers in Britain, saying it made him “angry and sad”.
“I think we as a nation have to be ashamed that we were not prepared,” he said.
Taylor said the experience of his daughter Rory working in the state-run National Health Service (NHS) made him “ultra-aware of the vital work they are doing daily to save us and our society”.
“Their bravery and sacrifice must not be prejudiced by anything less than a 100 per cent effort by our governments to protect them,” he said in a statement.
“They are precious to us all and they are truly our champions.”
The song “We Are The Champions” was released in 1977 and has become a global anthem.
It was written by Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, who died in 1991.
He said of the song: “I wanted to write something that everyone could sing along to. And at the same time, I thought it would be nice to have a winning song that’s meant for everyone.”
Queen are a British rock band formed in London in 1970. Their classic line-up was Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon.
