Bruno Mars aka Peter Gene Hernandez (born October 8th 1985), is a singer-songwriter and a music producer. Raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, he is one of six children and is of Puerto Rican and Filipino descent. Bruno started his career at the tender age of 4 becoming Oahu's youngest Elvis impersonator. At the age of 16 he did a few shows around Waikiki, opening up for a magic show called the "Magic of Polynesia”. After graduating high school in 2003, at the age of 18 he moved to L.A. to peruse a career in music.
After months of struggle and frustration and trying to figure out how he would break out into the music industry he met songwriter Phillip Lawrence and later Ari Lavine and together they created a production team called The Smeezingtons.
He worked behind the scenes, writing and producing songs for other artists. The hard work paid off and in 2009 he signed with Atlantic and Elektra Records. In 2010 he released his debut album "Doo-Wops and Hooligans" that debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 and went on to sell 24 million copies worldwide, making Bruno breakthrough male artist of the year and an international star.
