The voice that will be delivering the official Assassin’s Creed Revelations song is Madeline Bell, an 18-year-old student from Moraga, California, Ubisoft has revealed.

An X Factor-esque competition was set up to find the singer, which saw a jury consisting of composers Hans Zimmer (Dark Knight, Inception), Lorne Balfe (who composed the song Bell will be singing), and the series’ musical supervisor Simon Landry casting their votes to choose a winner.

“We chose Madeline because we felt that she had a quality in her voice that inspired and moved us all. This was never going to be a contest about right or wrong, but about the ‘perfect fit’ and we were all deeply impressed with the submissions.” the collective voice of the jury explains.

“The overwhelming response clearly proves that we made the right decision to find a voice among the Assassin’s Creed fan community, and that there is a lot of undiscovered talent out there that deserves to be heard.”

As well as getting to work with Zimmer and Balfe on the track, Bell also scooped up a $1000 prize.

The winning performance can be heard on the UJAM website.

Assassin’s Creed Revelations is due for release November 15, on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
