The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) have revealed the first winner of the prestigious Freddie Mercury Scholarship!
The winner, Arjelevez Maxwell, will study the Music Industry Practise degree completely debt free and will be based at Metropolis Studios. Maxwell was chosen due to her outstanding talent for songwriting, her passion and potential. The scholarship was announced back in May where both ACM and QUEEN felt the scholarship would perfectly celebrate Freddie Mercury‘s 70th birthday on September 5th.
Speaking about the winner Metropolis Studios CEO, Ian Brenchley, says, ““we are very excited to welcome Arjelevez on to our ACM degree programme here at Metropolis. Freddie wrote and recorded so much material at our studio and we really feel his legacy lives on whenever we hear his Fazioli grand piano played in Studio A. As a creative at the forefront of the industry and a pioneer of his time, I know Freddie too would be extremely pleased to offer this fantastic opportunity to such a talented young woman.”
