Here’s yet another reason to post up for Super Bowl with pupu, poke and beer: Hawaii native and Grammy-award winner Bruno Mars is set to perform at the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show, according to multiple media sources.
It’s one of the toughest gigs in the entertainment industry, drawing more than 100 million television viewers in the United States alone. The 27-year-old singer-songwriter will soon be added to the legendary Super Bowl halftime hall of famers, like Beyonce, Madonna and Bruce Springsteen.
How will he do? He’s going to kill it! So far, every performance I’ve seen him do – whether in person or live on television – he has managed to execute every note and dance move with flawless effort. The great thing about Bruno is that he stays true to that entertainment aspect so crucial to the biz. Every performance is exciting to watch and gets people groovin’ up and and out of their seats.
Before he went big as Bruno Mars, the Roosevelt High grad – whose real name is Peter Hernandez – used to light up the stage in Waikiki. He dressed up as Michael Jackson and Elvis for a nightly Vegas-type show at the Beachcomber Resort Hotel. And you can bet he’d moonwalk across that stage!
Make Hawaii proud, Bruno!
