Ever since David Bowie passed away on January 10th, artists all over the world have honored him with numerous tributes. Now, Cee Lo Green is serving up an acoustic take on the classic “Space Oddity.”
It’s all part of Cee Lo Green: Live in L.A., which will air this Friday, March 11th on AT&T U-Verse and DirecTV’s Audience Network (via Billboard). The program released a 2 minute clip of CeeLo covering Bowie as a teaser to the upcoming special.
Filmed just four days after Bowie’s death, CeeLo spoke from the heart about how much the musician meant to him. “What can we say, we’re speechless,” he told the camera. “You will live forever in our hearts. You are so wonderful; your soul and spirit is immortal. We love you dearly.”
Dedicating their rendition to Bowie, Cee Lo launched into a somber “Space Oddity” replete with acoustic guitar and flute. His magnanimous voice carries the song to new heights.
