MARC MARTEL of DOWNHERE was honored last night at the MTV O AWARDS 2. Fans voted him the winner of Best Fan Cover.
MARTEL was unable to attend the online ceremony having just returned from a tour in NORWAY. He sent a pre-taped acceptance speech thanking the fans for supporting him.
Martel became a viral sensation when his "Somebody To Love Me" audition for the QUEEN EXTRAVAGANZA had over four million hits on YOUTUBE. ROGER TAYLOR, drummer for QUEEN, called MARTEL "an extraordinarily good singer who would make a wonderful FREDDIE" during a recent FOX NEWS interview.
