Bruno Mars has sold over 115 million records worldwide as a singer, producer and songwriter. This book documents his childhood in Honolulu and how he found fame from the age of four.
Here is the incredible story of Bruno Mars, the obscure Hawaiian singer /songwriter who rocketed to global fame in just three years.
After failure and near poverty in LA where the Motown record label signed and then dropped him, Bruno Mars had a surprise worldwide smash with his fi rst single for Atlantic, ‘Just The Way You Are’. With sales of over 115 million, including two record-breaking digital single releases, Bruno Mars became a major star almost overnight. Even so, his exotic origins make for a story of rare fascination – raised by a family of musicians, learning his craft in Honolulu, playing, writing and performing on other people’s records in LA and surviving a career-threatening drug bust.
This is the amazing biography of Bruno Mars so far. The future promises even more success!
