Grammy-winning artist Bruno Mars has truly rocked the global music scene. With his heart-stopping grooves and jaw-dropping melodies, he has indeed successfully dominated the hearts of many fans.

But for his Filipino fans, the affection is magnified a hundred times because of the heritage they share together. Since Bruno Mars is half-Filipino, the Pinoy fans strongly resonate with him on a personal level—perhaps one reason why they go wild whenever he releases a new album or visits the country for a concert. Some even fly to nearby countries just to catch him live!

Here are some of the many reasons why Filipino love Bruno Mars:

He writes his own songs
Bruno Mars is a return to the singer-songwriter phase, the kind that is currently hardly scene in other famous musicians. Did you also know that he used to write songs for other artists too? Have you heard of Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire”? Or Flo Rida’s hit “Right Round”? Yep, he produced those hit songs.

He proved fame knows no height
Bruno Mars has perfectly given guys who are vertically challenge a sense of confidence too, as she stands proud at 5-foot-5.

He’s real funny
They say funny guys are the best people to fall in love with, because every minute becomes fun. Bruno Mars captures this with his hilarious impressions that have created hundreds of laughs among the audience. Just check his guesting at an episode of Saturday Night Live and see his bits and limericks as if he’s part of the main cast!

He is proud to be a Filipino
He did not hesitate to assert his identity to the audience on a global scale when he declared on a Hollywood show years ago that he is a proud Pinoy. Bruno Mars, whose real name is Peter Gene Hernandez, said he was born in Hawaii to a Filipino mother and Puerto Rican father. Since his declaration, he has made sure to always mention his mother and her culture to interviews and a TV guestings. It’s no surprise that more and more Filipinos continue to support and cheer for him!

Catch Bruno Mars on New Year’s Eve live at du Arena in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi! Tickets are exclusively available at www.ticketmaster.ae and Virgin Megastore.
