On Monday night, Bruno Mars wrapped up three big concerts in his home state of Hawaii, and Hawaiian governor Neil Abercrombie honored their local-boy-made-good by proclaiming "Bruno Mars Day" throughout the Aloha state.
The proclamation of Bruno Mars Day -- April 21, 2014 -- notes Bruno's many accomplishments, and states that his "talent for combining catchy pop melodies, hip-hop beats and feel-good lyrics has helped him emerge as one of Hawaii's most popular artists."
In addition, the Hawaiian legislature honored Bruno backstage at his concert with a special certificate, according to the Hawaii Reporter .
"Bruno Mars, a young man born in Hawaii, has become a musical phenomenon and a global icon, and an exceptional representative of the people of these islands," reads the certificate. "The Senate and House of Representatives of the Twenty-seventh Legislature of the State of Hawaii hereby commends and congratulates Bruno Mars on his outstanding career and extends our best wishes for his continued success throughout the years to come."
"Can't describe how it feels to be singing @ home. I love you all," Bruno tweeted when he first arrived n Hawaii for his shows. For at least one of his concerts, his father's band was one of his opening acts. As many Bruno fans know, his father is a longtime musician and bandleader, and Bruno got his start as a very young kid, performing onstage with his family.
