January 10 marked seven years since the passing of  David Bowie, and his daughter Alexandria “Lexi” Jone, has paid homage to her late father on the anniversary of his death with a heartwarming throwback to a happier time.

As fans across the globe took a moment to remember the life and legacy of one of music’s most influential artists, 22-year-old Lexi, joined mourners and offered fans a rare insight into her childhood with her megastar father.

Taking to Instagram, Lexi shared a video clip of her younger self playing on the keyboard with her dad in what looks like a makeshift home recording studio.

She also included a sweet photo of her in her father’s arms as she holds up a colourful umbrella for them to share.

“7 years ago today. I miss you,” she captioned the post.

Lexi is the Space Oddity hitmaker’s only daughter, whom he shares with 67-year-old Somali fashion model, Iman. She was only 15 years old when she lost her father to liver cancer in 2016.

Lexi’s touching tribute comes four months after it was announced that Bowie would be memorialised alongside fellow British music legend on London’s Music Walk of Fame.

“David Bowie is a global influence, one of the ultimate influencers, and sooner or later we had to have him on the Music Walk Of Fame,” Music Walk of Fame founder Lee Bannett said.

“Our intention is for this to be the highest honour a music figure can receive in the UK and beyond, the unveiling of David’s stone ensures that legacy.

“We have huge plans for the future, but for now let’s celebrate one of the greats of music.”

Prior to his death, Bowie had hit record sales estimated at over 100 million records sold worldwide, earning his spot as one of the best-selling musicians of all time.
