We are extremely saddened to report that, while most of the world was fast asleep, news broke that legendary singer David Bowie died at only 69 years old.
David Bowie Dead At 69 Years Old
An official statement was posted to his Facebook page five hours ago that reads the following:
“January 10 2016 – David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.”
Fans of Bowie know that just last week he released a new album. In addition, his off-Broadway show, Lazarus, is currently playing at the New York Theater Workshop to a completely sold out run.
We are deeply saddened to hear the news and will keep you posted on more details as they emerge.
