There are many statues of celebrities in London, but not a single one for Freddie Mercury. A blue plaque in his first place of residence is not enough. The house he lived in the later years is not enough. Both places have new residents and aren't appropriate locations for fans to gather and pay their respect.
British singer and songwriter Freddie Mercury was born
Farrokh Bulsara on September 5, 1946, in Zanzibar, Tanzania.
He Moved to London with his family in the 1960s. In addition to his talents as a singer and songwriter, Mercury was also a skilled showman. When you search "best male rock singers of all time" or "best vocalists of all time" or even " best frontmen of all time", Freddie usually top the lists. Freddie knew how to entertain audiences and how to connect with them and continues to conquer the heart of millions of people up to this day.
Today, 26 after his passing, his music is still very much alive, but there's no statue in his honor in London. Not a place fans from the UK and all around the world can go to mourn their loss or just be reminded of his greatness. Great artists and singers like Amy Winehouse have one in their honor, so why we, fans from London and fans from all around the world, can't have one placed in London as well, the place he chose to live, in the country he contributed enormously to its musical heritage?
In a world full of hate, music culture is very important to remind us there's still beauty in life. It enriches our souls and our horizons. Please give Freddie Mercury, one of the most recognised artists of the millennium, the long overdue and much deserved statue in Kensington or any other place in the heart of London
