Christopher's performance of Bowie's 1971 track Life on Mars was part of the regular lunchtime recital at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow and was filmed by Gordon Wilson who put the video of the performance on his Facebook with the comment "Not a good day. Took myself off to The Art Galleries...this was moving."

The video has since been watched over 2 million times and feautured on major news channels such as the BBC and The Scotsman.
