As the world gets to grips with the surprise death of David Bowie on Jan. 10, one man’s tribute to the Starman is hitting the right notes. 
A Facebook user by the name of Gordon Wilson, like many others, took a walk to clear his head after he heard the news. When he strolled into the Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow, according to various reports, Bowie’s spirit was filling the room.

Wilson captured and shared a video of a “moving” performance of “Life On Mars” on the church’s organ (Christopher Nickol is widely reported have performed the piece).

It appears the now-viral video was filmed at the Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow, and that the man playing the organ in the video is Christopher Nickol.

Not a good day. Took myself off to The Art Galleries...this was moving.
