Like something straight out of a holiday Hallmark movie, Martin helped raise over $4,000 for the mission through ticket sales from the sold out event.

Audience members were treated to a mixture of Coldplay songs, along with special performances of Prince's Purple Rain, David Bowie's Life on Mars?, and The Beatles' classic Yesterday.

Mission's Director of Outreach James Macklin said the performer "lifted our spirits," telling E! News:

"Chris Martin proved once again the power of one person to make a difference through The Bowery Mission. As the temperatures drop and we serve thousands of lonely people during the holidays, Chris has lifted our spirits today."

What a way to end the year before spending the holidays eating Gwyneth Paltrow's Christmas goose!

Fans can send donations through the organization's website.

In addition to the amazing emoji news, the famous art gallery Sotheby's just announced David's secret and immense art collection will hit the auction block on November 10 and 11.

According to the art house, the collection includes Jean-Michel Basquiat's insanely expensive 1984 painting Air Power, as well as a spin painting Bowie himself created with Damien Hirst in 1995.

While there are HUNDREDS of high-priced pieces in the stockpile, the Basquiat takes the cake with a price tag of $3 million dollars while his collaboration with Hirst comes in around $350K.

Damn! We imagine many of Bowie's dedicated fans will be chomping at the bit to bid on those pricey items!
