The Algemeiner reports: The famed lead guitarist of British rock band Queen, Brian May, encouraged Jewish singer-songwriter Adam Lambert to perform in Hebrew during their upcoming joint concert in Israel, an entertainment industry advocacy organization reported on Tuesday.
During a recent interview with Israeli television personality Assi Azar, May was played a 2005 video of Lambert singing the popular song Shir L’Shalom, (Song for Peace). May was so impressed by Lambert’s singing of the Hebrew track that he told the American singer, “We have to do that. Let’s do it! Put it in the show.”
“Listen to that voice, wow. That’s amazing…that’s a voice in a billion,” May added in the video interview, which was re-posted on Facebook by Creative Community for Peace (CCFP).
Lambert and Queen will perform at Tel Aviv’s Park Hayarkon on Sept. 12. Lambert, who has never been to Israel before, said he is “really, really thrilled” for the upcoming visit.
