Legendary singer David Bowie died Sunday at the age of 69 after an 18-month battle with cancer. The news was posted on the artist’s official social media accounts and confirmed by several news outlets.
As news of his death is sinking in, the world is still shocked to learn that the music icon had been battling cancer. Though best known for his music, Bowie also had a notable career on the silver screen, appearing in films such as “The Man Who Fell To Earth,” “Basquiat,” “The Prestige” and the cult-classic “Labyrinth,” in which he starred as Jareth the Goblin King.
Bowie’s final music video, below, was released just three days before his death. The opening lyrics are both chilling and moving: “Look up here, I’m in heaven.” It’s as if he was preparing to say “goodbye.”
