The "Space Oddity" singer died at age 69 Sunday following an 18-month battle with cancer. Bowie was one of the music influential artists of the past 50 years, known for making hits like "Changes," "Moonage Daydream," "Heroes," "Young Americans," "Ziggy Stardust," "Rebel, Rebel," "Five Years," "Modern Love" and "The Man Who Sold the World." The two-time Grammy winner released what would ultimately become his final album, Blackstar, on his 69th birthday Friday.

Bowie is survived by two children, Duncan Jones and Alexandria "Lexi" Zahra Jones, as well as his wife Iman, whom he had been married to since Apr. 24, 1992.
