.
(Gibson) Queen legend Brian May has released his rendition of the Oscar-winning song "Born Free" in collaboration with West End and Broadway star Kerry Ellis, with proceeds of the single going to international wildlife charity the Born Free Foundation.

Written by John Barry and Don Black, the song was originally recorded by Matt Monro in 1966 as the theme to the film of the same name, about the release of an orphaned lioness back into the wild.

The foundation was established by the stars of the film, Virginia McKenna OBE and Bill Travers, which told the story of George and Joy Adamson's successful release of Elsa, an orphaned lioness, to the wild. Inspired by their experiences in Kenya, Virginia and Bill went on to establish the Born Free Foundation. more on this story
