Sing like Freddie with app

Queen have launched a new charity app which gives fans the chance to hit the high notes and sound like late frontman Freddie Mercury.

The FreddieMeter app allows users to compare their singing voices to Mercury's on four tracks - Bohemian Rhapsody, Don't Stop Me Now, Somebody to Love, and We Are the Champions.

Created by bosses at Google Creative Lab and Google Research, the initiative works by evaluating singers' melody, timbre and pitch, and awards a score from 0 to 100.

All proceeds will benefit the Mercury Phoenix Trust - the HIV/AIDS charity founded by Queen bandmates Brian May and Roger Taylor, and Mercury's former partner Jim Beach.

The band picked this month to launch the app as it ties in with the 44th anniversary of Queen's first ever live concert at Liverpool, England's Empire Theater in November 1975.

Mercury died in 1991, aged 45, of complications from AIDS.
