Although Bruno Mars now has a collection of catchy music, a large following, and a lavish lifestyle, he comes from humble beginnings. By humble, means homeless.
Times were tough and bleak for the family, which consisted of Bruno, his father, and his brother. He had divorced parents. They lived in an austere building in the center of a birding zoo. It had no bathroom, forcing them to cross the park to find a toilet.
Then the park, which his father was the keeper of, shut down. Bruno and his family would sleep wherever they could, from tops of buildings to back of vehicles.
“My dad was just the king of finding these little spots for us to stay that we should never have been staying at,” Mars reported in a broadcast.
The trio soon found a one-bedroom shack to live in. All that Mars really had at that time was his brother, father, and optimism. His traumatic experiences just made him try harder to reach his goal.
“We had each other and it never felt like it was the end of the world.” Mars said.
He always found a way through. He did anything to survive while developing his skills. Mars’ hard efforts and sheer determination led to him eventually become famous and live a great life.
Bruno Mars’ story is impressive and inspiring enough to make anyone tear up, whether they’re happy or sad tears.
