David Bowie Dies Of Cancer At 69

Iconic performer David Bowie has died at the age of 69 after battling liver cancer. 

"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," a statement on his official facebook account read. 

The entertainer passed away on Sunday January 10 at his home in New York City, two days after his birthday and the worldwide release of his album "Blackstar".

Bowie's successful career spanned over forty years and he influenced other mediums such as acting, fashion and painting.

Hours before his tragic death was made public, it was announced he would be honored at a concert at Carnegie Hall. Cyndi Lauper, The Roots the Mountain Goats and more will perform in the March 31 concert.

Bowie, whose real name is David Robert Jones, was known as an innovator, famous for his androgynous image principally in the 1970s and 1980s. David is survived by his wife, supermodel Iman and children Duncan and Alexandria Jones.
