It's been a rough year in the music world.
Prince, Glenn Frey and Merle Haggard all passed away this year, and that's just to name a few.
On Sunday evening, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra will honor another artist many fans feel left the world too soon: rock legend David Bowie.
Bowie died of liver cancer in January, two days after his final album was released.
His musical style was characterized by "chameleon-like" genre-jumping and his various stage personalities, including Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke.
