AN organist at Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Museum has paid tribute to the late David Bowie with a special rendition of Life On Mars.
On the day of Bowie’s death, Chris Nickol had heard of the music legend’s passing on his way to a performance at the city attraction.
He added the song to his set list, and he became a viral hit online with over three million people worldwide watching a recording of his beautiful version.
Nickol says he was ‘gobsmacked’ by the response the video received, so it was only fitting that he should play it again on the second anniversary of Bowie’s passing.
A large audience gathered in the lobby to witness the occasion, which you can watch part of in our Facebook video below.
