6,400 kids singing David Bowie will give you chills

10 minute rehearsal, 6,400 kids and one David Bowie song.

Since the world woke up to the news that legendary musician David Bowie passed away at the age of 69, tributes have been flooding from fans all over the world.

Even the ones that probably weren't even born during Bowie's heyday.

The world’s largest children's choir Young Voices paid special tribute to the star at Birmingham’s Genting Arena after hearing the news of his death and mere hours before the opening night of their UK tour.

Singing his hit Life On Mars the choir was lead by singer Tom Billington.

Powerful stuff.
