Watch Miguel cover David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’

R&B star took on the track in Los Angeles earlier this week

R&B performer Miguel covered David Bowie live at an intimate gig earlier this week.

The singer performed a low-key show at Los Angeles’ Bardot venue on Monday (January 25), paying tribute during the show to the late singer with a cover of his classic ‘Space Oddity’.

Watch the acoustic rendition below, which eventually transitions into Miguel’s recent single ‘Waves’.


Miguel released his ‘Wildheart’ album in June of last year and collaborated with Disclosure on their second album ‘Caracal’.

Meanwhile, The Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger has spoken about his friendship with David Bowie, telling Rolling Stone magazine: “There was always an exchange of information within our friendship. And I suppose there was always an element of competition between us, but it never felt overwhelming. When he’d come over, we’d talk about our work — a new guitarist, a new way of writing, style and photographers. We had a lot in common in wanting to do big things onstage — using interesting designs, narratives, personalities.”


Jagger added: “We were very close in the Eighties in New York. We’d hang out a lot and go out to dance clubs. We were very influenced by the New York downtown scene back then. That’s why “Let’s Dance” is my favorite song of his — it reminds me of those times, and it has such a great groove. He had a chameleon-like ability to take on any genre, always with a unique take, musically and lyrically.”
