Later in high school, he formed a band with a few friends called The School Boys, which helped him become used to performing on stage. Once Bruno graduated at age 17, he left Hawaii to LA to pursue his dream of becoming an artist. When he was signed but then dropped by Motown Records, Mars focused on songwriting with Philip Lawrence. Philip Lawrence By the late 2000s, the songs they wrote became popular. Such as Flo Rida's "Right 'Round", Brandy's "Long Distance", Travie McCoy's "Billionaire" and Khaans "Wavin' Flag" which was the theme song in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olypmics. After years of being a songwriter, Bruno Mars broke out as a singer when he featured in the 2010 hit "Nothin' On You". The track with B.O.B. skyrocketed to #1 on the Billboard Singles Chart, instantly transforming Mars from a composer to a pop performer. Several months later he released his first chart topper single "Just The Way You Are". In the following year he also came out with his first studio album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans. The album reached to #3 on the Billboards Album Chart. Around this time, Mars was nominated for a few Grammy's.

Overall, Bruno Mars is inspiring to many people because he never gave up. He started as a poor boy from Hawaii to an international pop star selling out arenas. He is currently living in LA, about to start his Moonshine Jungle Tour. Mars is now trying to enjoy the moment. “Everything’s good right now,” he says. “It’s really paying off because my songs are on the radio. It took me awhile to get it, but when I got it, I think I got it right. And I’m very proud of how my songs are representing me as an artist.” He was nicknamed Bruno by his father because of his resemblance to the professional wrestler Bruno Sammartino. He got the nickname Mars because girls told him he was out of this world. The name Bruno Mars
