Bruno Mars

Simultaneously retro and radio friendly, Bruno Mars is a multitalented vocalist, dancer, instrumentalist and songwriter – and one of the most entertaining showmen of the modern era. Born Peter Gene Hernandez in 1985 to a family of musicians, Bruno began his career early, impersonating the King of Rock and Roll as "Little Elvis" around his native Hawaii. He made his name writing songs for others, but soon became known as a performer by appearing on tracks by B.o.B and Travie McCoy. He exploded onto the scene with 2010’s ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans,’ featuring the massive hits ‘Just the Way You Are’ and ‘Grenade.’ His next album, ‘Unorthodox Jukebox,’ won Best Pop Vocal Album at the Grammy Awards in 2014. Mars truly became a household name when he was picked as the half-time entertainment at the 2014 Super Bowl.
