Berklee Rewind from February 8, 2018
Berklee Performance Center
Bruno Mars is influenced by the showmanship of Elvis, Prince, and Michael Jackson, and the music of Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouse, and the Roots. These artists have paved the way for Mars to become one of the most influential musicians today, winning Grammys and Brit Awards, and a place on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list. Berklee pays tribute to Mars with a full production of his music with choreography.
The Bruno Mars Ensemble, composed of outstanding student singers, musicians, and dancers, will perform popular hits by Mars, including “Uptown Funk,” “Runaway Baby,” and “24K Magic.” The ensemble is handpicked and directed by Professor Tia Fuller, a former member of Beyoncé’s band.
