Classical star Alfie Boe and Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh released their cover of Queen’s 1985 classic One Vision today (Friday, May 11). The track is the official anthem of Team GB for the upcoming Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Boe and Walsh will debut the track for the first time live this evening at London’s Royal Albert Hall in front of Prince William and his wife, Catherine Duchess of Cambridge.
However, because Boe and Walsh’s version will be performed in front of Royalty, they have had to adjust the lyrics.
“I love the fried chicken lyric but we thought it was best to change it to One Vision,” Walsh revealed on her Twitter.
The original version of One Vision first debuted on the Official Singles Chart 27 years ago. It charted at Number 7. You can see Queen's full Official Chart history here.Back
