Duncan Jones wants his dad to be remembered as a champion of the weird.
The son of late singer David Bowie took to the BRIT Awards stage on Wednesday to offer a heartfelt message while accepting the Blackstar singer's posthumous award for MasterCard British Album of the Year, after he died of cancer in Jan. 2016.
"I lost my dad last year, but I also became a dad," Jones shared. "I was spending a lot of time, after getting over the shock, trying to work out what would I want my son to know about his granddad."
"He's always been there supporting people who think they're a little bit weird, or a little bit strange, a little bit different. And he's always been there for them," he continued. "This award is for all the kooks and all the people who make the kooks."

Bowie's final album has been nothing short of celebrated, just last week sweeping the GRAMMYs with five posthumous awards.
