Transcript of Bruno Mars✌

After graduating from high school in 2002 at age 17, Mars decided to leave Hawaii for Los Angeles. During his first few years in California, he struggled to make a breakthrough in the music industry. Since he had performed so frequently while growing up in Honolulu, Mars grew frustrated with waiting for his career to move forward. Which is when he turned to songwriting.

Peter Gene Hernandez, known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is an American singer-songwriter and record producer.
His stage name, “Bruno Mars”, was inspired by the chubby wrestler Bruno Samartino, because Bruno was a chubby kid. And the Mars came along because he needed some pizzazz to add to his name and girls used to say he was “out of this world,” therefore the Mars. Bruno Mars has affected society by making music that his fans can relate to within themselves. •Born: October 8, 1985 (age 27), Honolulu
•Height: 5' 5" (1.65 m)
•Nationality: American
•Albums: Unorthodox Jukebox, Doo-Wops & Hooligans, Earth to Mars, Locked Out of Heaven, Grenade.
•Siblings: Eric Hernandez, Jamie Hernandez, Presley Hernandez, Tahiti Hernandez, Tiara Hernandez. In Waikiki Beach, Mars' family performed revue that included Motown hits, doo-wop melodies & celebrity impersonations. Growing up around entertainers, he began picking up musical instruments & experimented with them. "I've always had a drum set, a piano, a guitar.. and never got trained to play. It was just always there. That's how I learned, just being surrounded by it my whole life." At the age of 4, he joined the family musical act as an Elvis impersonator and quickly become one of the stars of the show. He continued to perform with his family throughout his childhood, & as he approached adolescence he added Michael Jackson to his impersonation repertoire. His first music video was Just The Way You Are in 2010. Mars attended Roosevelt High School, where he and several friends formed a band, The School Boys, performing classic oldies hits alongside his family's act at the Ilikai Hotel in Honolulu. " Mars credits his fearless stage presence to his unusual childhood. "Performing from such a young age just got me so comfortable on stage," he says. "Growing up performing—that was normal for me. Everyone in my family sings, plays instruments. It's what we do. "I only started writing songs when I moved up to L.A., because when I was in Hawaii I never really needed to, but it stemmed from just learning that you have to do everything by yourself. It's not like what you see in movies, where you walk into a record company and you're given all these great songs to sing. You have to write the song the world is going to want to hear." Mars recalls. A friend introduced Mars to songwriter Phillip Lawrence who agreed to help Mars write material. They presented a song they had written and recorded to a record label, who liked it but wanted one of their own artists to perform it. Mars states, "We were so broke and struggling, we had to do what we had to do, so we ended up selling the song." Even though he was upset he said, "The light bulb went off. I decided to push the artist thing aside and get into the business this way. We can write songs and produce songs." Bruno Mars released his first solo single, "Just the Way You Are," on September 8th 2010, another single that landed the artist on top of the Billboard singles chart. The track served as the lead single for Mars' debut studio album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans, released in October 2010. The album reached No. 3 on Billboard's album charts, and its follow-up singles, "Grenade" and "The Lazy Song" also cracked the top 10 on the singles chart. He also scored another hit with "It Will Rain," which he contributed to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 soundtrack in late 2011. Bibliography http://www.brunomars.com/about
