This was far from the only tribute paid to Bowie.

Members of Choir! Choir! Choir!, a Canada-based singing group, joined forces with The Art Gallery of Ontario and gathered 500 people to sing Bowie’s classic song “Space Oddity” at the Walker Court in Toronto.

Just two days before Bowie’s passing, he released his 25th album, Blackstar. After he died, it became his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts.
