Hello folks, listen to the Prophet Song - Great King Rat - Jesus medley by American singer Donalyn Gross. She is a dying and death counsellor who has published a CD with harp music for dying people. However, I think her Queen passion has nothing to do with this part of her life. The song was submitted by Rien (Mercuryparadise.com)with her permission.

I am looking forward to your opinion.

Enjoy:)

This is the first fan cover I don't like.

It was a good idea to do it with piano and vocals. But I think the singer has a really annoying accent and voice


i'm sorry, but they can't be all good :)

I agree with FC that it was a good attempt doing this with just piano and vocals. But for me it just needed a touch more fleshing out and it would have been better. The accent thing didnt bother me at all to be honest as I thought she had a nice voice.

Not the greatest fan version, but certainly not the worst - not by a long chalk thats for sure.

Nice try :)

I kinda like it. It sure takes guts to make a medley out of those 3 songs.

She sounds a bit like Jon Anderson from Yes.

The accent and delivery was a bit distracting at first, but then I started to enjoy it. It's got a nice piano sound and there's a nice.. something to the sound as well. Interesting idea with the medley.

What was with the background noise and distortion bits, though?

How insulting to Jon! No way does she sound like Jon. Are you nuts!?
