Born in London, England on January 8th, 1947, a renowned singer named David Bowie also known as David Robert Jones began an incredible life. Bowie started off his career with his first hit song, “Space Oddity”, that reached millions of fans through the language of music.

This legend had created a total of 26 albums in his life. With no surprise, due to his nature of being what he was often called, a “musical chameleon”, Bowie made it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.

For some of you that are not as familiar with his music, one of his most popular songs called “Changes” was in the Shrek 2 movie soundtrack. You know, the part that goes, “ch-ch-ch-chaaaaaaangees”?

Bowie was not just the great singer he is known for, he was also a man of many accomplished works. An actor, a painter, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and a record producer were some of his many occupations.

He had just celebrated his 69th birthday a few days before he had passed. After an 18 month fight, on January 10th, the diagnosis of liver cancer is what ended the musical legend David Bowie’s journey full of love and creativity. The great artist passed away with his loved ones by his side, leaving a legacy that will live on forever. He will always be loved.

Rest in peace, David Bowie.
