Billboard’s 2013 Artist of the Year, Bruno Mars is a critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, producer and musician. The 18-time Grammy Award nominee and multi-Grammy winner has sold over 130 million singles worldwide. His current album Unorthodox Jukebox and his debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans have a combined certification total of 84x Platinum worldwide. According to Billboard, Mars scored his first five “Hot 100” No. 1s faster than any male since Elvis Presley. As a singer, songwriter and producer, Mars has an impressive catalog of 22 “Hot 100” hits. At the top of 2014, Mars made NFL history with the most watched Super Bowl Halftime Show that amassed a record breaking 115.3 million viewers—the highest ratings of the game’s telecast to date—all while being the youngest artist ever to serve as the sole NFL Super Bowl Halftime headliner. Bruno and his eight-piece band The Hooligans are currently on the second leg of their sold-out 155-date Moonshine Jungle world tour****
The multitalented singer, songwriter,
producer and musician was born to a musical family in Honolulu, Hawaii. His
father, a Latin percussionist from Brooklyn, organized a Vegas-style revue that
featured the entire family, including his mother, a talented vocalist.
Four-year-old Mars observed his family performing Motown hits, doo-wop medleys
and impersonations for enthusiastic crowds all over his native Waikiki Beach.
Soon after, Mars became the world’s youngest Elvis impersonator performing in
front of the same enthusiastic crowds on a nightly basis.
As soon as he graduated high school, Mars left
Hawaii for Los Angeles with dreams of launching his career as a performer.
Those dreams got put on hold, however, when The Smeezingtons, the
songwriting/production team he founded with Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine,
suddenly took off. The trio began crafting major hits for a diverse roster of talent,
including Flo Rida’s “Right Round”, Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire”, and K’Naan’s
“Wavin’ Flag”, which was the theme song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Mars first achieved worldwide visibility and
success as a featured writer/producer/singer on two massive summer hits in 2010
(McCoy’s “Billionaire” and B.o.B’s “Nothin’ On You”).
