Bruno Mars Awarded ‘Artist of the Year’ at 2017 AMAs

One can’t deny Bruno Mars’ infectious vocals, catchy lyrics, and the over-encompassing positivity he brings to the music world.

After the breakout of his hit personal tracks “Nothing on You” and “Just the Way You Are” in 2010, Mars aimed for the stars and surpassed them. Since then, his list of number one singles on Billboard’s Hot 100 continues to grow, his records continue to sell at exponentially fast rates, and his tour stops continue to sell out. 

The 2017 American Music Awards acknowledged these efforts put in by Mars. Unfortunately, he couldn’t attend in person to accept the award, but shared a special acceptance video in place of. The awards show showed appreciation to artists in all genres, including artists and bands such as The Chainsmokers, Linkin Park, Coldplay, Drake, and more.

Mars’ third studio album, 24K Magic, was released in 2016. He spent the majority of 2017 touring everywhere from Paris to Ft. Lauderdale promoting the hit album. 

Seeing Bruno Mars on music festival lineups is something I could get behind. This year in Atlanta, he brought the funk to Music Midtown; however, his festival appearances are few and far between. With the conclusion of his world tour, who knows where we may see him for 2018?
