There has been an outpouring of tributes to David Bowie in the aftermath of his death from cancer earlier this month. According to the singer's Facebook page, the latest homage comes from New York City. A new post reads, "Mayor Bill de Blasio has proclaimed today, January 20, 2016 in the City of New York as David Bowie Day. The proclamation will be read tonight at the curtain call of the final performance of the sold-out run of Lazarus, the New York Theater Workshop production conceived and co-created by Bowie."
