The official song at the 2012 Olympic Games in London may be sung by Coldplay should the band receive and accept the invitation to perform. According to a committee insider, the band would perform a specially penned song to open the Olympics to a crowd of more than two billion people.
A source close to the event told the Daily Mirror:
“Chris is at the top of the list to front the official record. He’s a huge star and a British musical icon, with an international profile. We’re pulling out all the stops to get hold of him, ideally with the rest of Coldplay involved, too.”
The deal is far from closed with Muse and Joss Stone also in the running for the honor of opening the event on July 27, 2012.
