Watch Glen Hansard pay musical tribute to Bowie at his NYC home


As the world continues to grieve over the loss of David Bowie, one talented Irish musician paid an emotional musical tribute to the star at his New York apartment. 

Glen Hansard was filmed alongside a mountain of flowers left at the site by a well known photographer who had arrived at the scene. 

The video was unplanned as rock photographer Kevin Mazur happened upon Glen at the lodgings where he had come to take photographs. 

The Dublin musician played a haunting rendition of Bowie's seminal hit Ashes to Ashes alongside other people who had come to grieve at the location. 

David Bowie died on Monday at the age of 69 following an 18-month battle with cancer.
