David Bowie

Just last month, the world was shocked by the news of the death of music icon David Bowie. Bowie had suffered from cancer for 18 months prior to his death and passed away just days after his 69th birthday. As the 2016 Grammys are just around the corner it seems only right that organizers plan a tribute to the rock legend.

In an interview with the New York Times, longtime Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich revealed that after taking some time to deliberate, Lady Gaga will preform the tribute to David Bowie. Gaga was already a part of this year’s performance line up and will put on the six to seven minute tribute. According to Ehrlich the tribute is set to pay tribute to Bowie’s influence on the music world, but also fashion and pop culture.
