Incredibly, Bruno Mars' first ever taste of fame was as an Elvis impersonator all the way back when he was just SIX years old. He was so convincing in fact that he even appeared in the 1992 flick 'Honeymoon In Vegas' as 'Little Elvis'. Bruno was always destined to hit the big time and his first appearance as an all-out singer was in the Far East Movement's single '3D'. in 2010, Bruno's debut album 'Doo-Wops & Hooligans' was released & he captured the Vodafone Big Top 40 No.1 spot with 'Just The Way You Are'. Fast forward to 2017 and Mr Mars has released two MASSIVE-selling albums 'Unorthodox Jukebox' and '24K Magic'.
