Happy Birthday Freddie!

Today would have been Freddie's 67th birthday and we are celebrating by throwing a party across the globe with the annual Mercury Phoenix Trust initiative Freddie For A Day!

Fans throughout the world are helping raising funds in our fight against HIV/AIDS by donning the Freddie moustache, parading around at work in one of his instantly recognisable costumes, throwing their own parties or simply raising a glass to him and donating to the charity. Simply put, having fun in Freddie's name for a great cause.

For 2013, actor, comedian and dedicated Queen and Freddie fan Matt Lucas, kindly recorded a lovely piece to camera relaying his fondness of our birthday boy and the extent to which we still need to fight HIV/AIDS. Click here to watch his message on behalf of the MPT. 

This year we have teamed up with Hard Rock Cafe, who have worked with us in arranging official Freddie For A Day parties right across Europe and beyond. All manner of things have been planned from Freddie cocktails, raffles, tribute bands, special menus, staff dressed as Freddie and special photo boards in the restaurants...and all of this soundtracked by, you guessed it, Queen. Click here to check out the full Hard Rock Cafe list and see if there is one near you!

2013 also sees the return of the Freddie Angry Bird and our friends at Rovio. This year they have gone one better and extended their support to Freddie actually appearing in the game itself. The Freddie For A Day tournament on Angry Birds Friends will be available to play on Facebook or mobile between September 2nd and 8th. For full details and to get playing click here!

Our friendships have also expanded to the fashion world. Queen fan and award winning British fashion designer Julien McDonald has produced a unique Freddie T-shirt that is exclusive to the Queen Store and limited to just 300!

Tonight, there will be a gala event in London at Queen AIDS Benefit in aid of the Mercury Phoenix Trust and to celebrate Freddie's birthday. Roger Daltry from The Who, Spice Girl Melanie C, Alfie Boe and many others will be performing in memory of Freddie. Images and reports of the night will be forthcoming.

Once again, thank you all for your support this year, without your passion, drive and enthusiasm and clear love of Freddie, we would not be able to do this.

Happy Birthday Freddie.

Happy 67th birthday to Freddie Mercury.
You are my hero. My everything. Your music has saved my life on several occasions.
You showed me that even when you feel so weak, you must make yourself strong and face life with a smile.
Freddie, if I had a thousand years I still don’t think that would be enough time to explain to you what you mean to me.
On top of being ridiculously talented, you are also so sweet, kind, loving, silly, and absolutely drop dead sexy. :)
All in all, I miss you so much it hurts and I’ll always love you!!!!!

Wow Fireddie, already 67. I like to imagine the amazing things Queen would be able to accomplish as a while if you didn't pass away. Then I think to myself 'what am I saying.let's not focus on the maybes or the could have beens. Instead let's focus on the success this band has made throughout it's twenty+ years. The amazing records you have set, the amazing songs written, and all the instruments and vocals that personally shaped and changed my life. Goodness let's ask look back on this long journey and realize how magnificent and God like this band is, and no I do not say was because to me the music, images, and videos are still there as if he never passed on. Let's think for a minute and look back on personally my favourite quote 'it's Better to have loved and lost than to not have loved at all'and I think that fits perfectly with Freddie. We were granted and honored with his beautiful voice and astonishing skills in the prime of his lifetime. Then we lost him, in a time that seemed to go by as fast the time we had with him. We all miss him dearly. And although he is no longer with us, I know that he's somewhere up on heaven singing to God, and that's why he was taken from us. Don't blame him for his own death, something that was irreversible. Yes he may have had some interests that you don't personally applaud, but if we focus on what we think is someones negatives then we will leave this earth as a hollowed out nothing. So join me today in song, not in words of hate. Sing they're hits on the top of your lungs and just have fun with it...because isn't that all Freddie wanted from us? R.I.P.. Freddie Mercury

Michaila

Dear Freddie,
You are my favorite singer in the whole world,
I would always listen to your Music, and your beautiful voice, I wish you were still here because it's not the same. Even though I was born late, I'm your biggest fan and I miss you. Hope you have a rocking 67th birthday. Keep on singing in heaven.
-From a young Queen fan of yours
Michaila :)
