Born Peter Gene Hernandez in 1985, Mars started making music at a young age and performed in a string of behind-the-scenes jobs before making a name for himself. Raised by a Hawaiian family of musicians, Bruno got involved in manifold music engagements early in his career like writing songs for Brandy, singing backup for the Sugababes, and impersonating Elvis.

He cemented his status as the album peaked at number three on the Billboard 200, and his Just the Way You Are and Grenade become worldwide number-one singles. He got seven Grammy nominations at the 53rd Grammy Awards, winning Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for Just the Way You Are. He continued his successful work with his second studio album, Unorthodox Jukebox, which was released on December 11, 2012.
