A Church organist who has become an overnight Internet sensation after he played tribute to music icon David Bowie said he was “overwhelmed” by the experience.
Nearly two million people around the world have now watched a video of Christopher Nickol playing the rock star’s iconic track “Life on Mars” on an organ in Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow. The two minute 35 second video has been shared on Facebook nearly 45,000 times – a level of interest he described as “quite alarming”. The lunchtime performance yesterday was met with rapturous applause by the audience, many of whom had woken up to the news that David Bowie had died aged 69 after fighting a secret battle with cancer for 18-months. Mr Nickol, the director of music at New Kilpatrick Parish Church in Bearsden, said he had grown up with the London-born star’s music and thought it would be appropriate to honour his memory.
People from all round the world have turned their hand to piping out tunes on the handsome organ which dates back to the early 1900s. Mr Nickol, a professional musician to trade who regularly plays at Kelvingrove, said: “David Bowie wrote some very good songs and after I heard on the news that he had died I thought I would play a tribute to him as yesterday happened to be one of my days there.
Mr Nickol, an accompanist at Bearsden Choir, played the song from memory after listening to it online to remind himself of how it sounded. Mr Nickol said he is pleased that the video uploaded by Milngavie-based art gallery owner Gordon Wilson had focused attention on Kelvingrove, the daily concerts and the organists who regularly play there.
The Rev Roddy Hamilton, minister at New Kilpatrick Parish Church, said Mr Nickol was a “superb, first class organist” who sensitively uses contemporary music to link faith and culture together to connect with people. Mr Nickol has previously played James Bond themes, ACDC material and the song Let it Go (from the Disney animated film Frozen) at Kelvingrove.
