Last month, legendary guitarist Brian May and his regular collaborator Kerry Ellis teamed up for a special performance at the Earth Day concert, Song For Nature.

Taking to the stage at London Coliseum, the Queen rocker performed a spine-tingling of the Christian hymn 'Amazing Grace' - and now he has shared the rendition to social media.

Alongside the video of their performance, May wrote: "In case you missed our performance of this song on Earth Day, here is some of it!

"Looking at it now, I'm feeling very thrilled that this new arrangement with orchestra actually DID work ... and maybe this is a signpost to where we might be heading."

'Amazing Grace' was written in 1772 by former slave trader John Newton, who converted to Christianity after calling out to God for mercy during a storm at sea in 1748.

Talk about goosebumps!
