Bruno Mars

His performance during the Super Bowl Halftime Show earlier this year proved yet again that Bruno Mars is an artist to be reckoned with. Born Peter Gene Hernandez and raised in Hololulu, Hawaii, in a musical family, Mars started performing in his family’s band The Love Notes at age four and became known as a young Elvis impersonator. His international breakthrough came in 2010 with hitsingle Just The Way You Are and his debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans, both reaching the top of the Billboard Hot 100, as did his second album Unorthodox Jukebox. Within three years, Mars sold over 10 million albums and 58 singles worldwide. He is known for his eclectic stage presence, which incorporates throwback styles from the 70's & 80's, vocally, musically and choreographically.
