David Bowie's music has touched so many lives, with the superstar embracing all kinds of music genres and making such a massive impact on his fans and pop culture.

His impact was clear after his death in 2016 when there was a global outpouring of grief, knowing that one of the brightest stars of the past fifty years had faded prematurely.

David's only daughter Lexi was just 15 when he lost his battle with liver cancer on 10th January 2016, since then though, it seems she's been delving into the music her father made, even covering a couple of his songs in a video that's recently resurfaced.

Born Alexandria Zahra Jones, 'Lexi' has amassed a sizeable following of over 200k users on Instagram now that she is in her early 20s.

She has developed an online presence for obvious reasons, but she has also started establishing herself as a musician and poet despite remaining relatively private.

Lexi treated her fans and followers to an impromptu performance of two of her late dad's legendary songs.

As she live-streamed to her many followers with the camera pointed in close proximity to her face, she launched into two heartwarming renditions.

Firstly she began singing 'Starman', the song that made David Bowie a bonafide star back in 1972.

She then followed up by sweetly singing 'Life On Mars' the intergalactic, eccentric ballad that is widely considered to be one of Bowie's greatest-ever songs.

Fans noticed she shares the same mannerisms as her dad, using her mouth to sing the same way he does, and her eyes also look uncannily like her father's - without the different colours of course.

Her soft and controlled voice won praise from her followers and fans of David Bowie alike, with many commenting that they hope she follows in her father's footsteps. 

On the anniversary of her father's death earlier this year, she shared a sweet video of the two of them practicing piano together.
