This almost brought me to tears
David Bowie was one of the biggest legends in the history of music! He changed the entire game with his style, songs, personality and image. He was never afraid to be himself, and when he passed away it was incredibly devastating for the world.
Following his passing, there were many tributes dedicated to him, and this tribute is one of the best we’ve ever seen. Over 500 Canadians gathered in the Art Gallery of Ontario, and sang Bowie’s hit “Space Oddity” in unison. It’s a beautiful cover, and they all sound in perfect harmony! Be warned, though, your eyes might get a little watery with emotion and respect.
Fun Fact: Bowie wrote this after seeing the 1968 Stanley Kubrick movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. “Space Oddity” is a play on the phrase “Space Odyssey,” although the title does not appear in the lyrics. The song tells the story of Major Tom, a fictional astronaut who cuts off communication with Earth and floats into space.
