Bruno Mars (birth name Peter Gene Hernandez) was born in Honolulu in 1985 and is a singer, songwriter, multi instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer. He was introduced to music at an early age by his family (his mother was both a singer and a dancer, his father performed Little Richard rock and roll music, and his uncle was an Elvis impersonator) and began performing with his family’s band when he was just 4 years old. He said in an interview, “Growing up in Hawaii made me the man I am. I used to do a lot of shows in Hawaii with my father's band. Everybody in my family sings, everyone plays instruments...I've just been surrounded by it.” He was inspired by Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Little Richard, and he went to create a unique musical style that can be best described as a blend of R&B, funk, pop, and soul music. He’s had a stellar career with 3 studio albums, 2 extended plays, 19 singles, and he’s collaborated with Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Major Lazer, Mark Ronson, and many other renowned artists.
