River City star Tom Urie has racked up almost 50,000 views with his incredible rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody.
Paisley-born Tom showed his musical talent is as good as his acting skills as he sang all of the legendary song’s different melodies, layering them over each other in separate clips and combining them for the final track.
All captured on video, the 51-year-old matched Freddy Mercury note for note, earning thousands of impressed admirers after posting the video on Facebook. Oh, and he nailed the guitar and piano parts too.
After the video reached 35,000 views, Tom commented: “Can’t believe this has just hit 35,000 views in under two days. Utterly heart warmed by people sharing and all the good feedback – these past few weeks with depression and anxiety have been frightening, and this is the kind of thing that pulls me out.”
