Bruno Mars dedicates his 24K Magic World Tour to helping make sure 24k people have a warm cooked meal this Thanksgiving.
Singer and Hawaiian native Bruno Mars has been away from home and on a world tour since March of 2017. Finishing up yesterday in his hometown of Honolulu after a total of 214 performances, Mars has got to be one exhausted entertainer.
Though he probably won’t be settling in to make himself a home cooked meal, the thirty-three year old has decided to team up with the Hawaii Community Foundation and the Salvation Army to ensure that 24,000 people won’t celebrate this Thanksgiving hungry.
His third studio LP 24K was released in 2016 and lended its sound from his archetypal soul and R&B roots. In 2018, the album was honored at the Grammys with the win for Best R&B and Album Of The Year.
On January 28, 2018, 24K Magic won the Grammys for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical; Best R&B Album; and Album of the Year. Due to the albums high demand, the 24K Magic World Tour was ranked the tour of the year pulling in over $50 million from it’s European leg alone.
While Mars has had quite the honorable career since breaking out with his hit single ‘Just The Way You Are,’ he has won numerous awards from music ceremonies and named on Time magazine’s 100 list in 2011.
He is also no stranger to philanthropy. Making the charitable donation of more than $200,000 to the orphaned victims of Typhoon Haiyan and Yolanda, he also fought to end poverty in New York by offering resources and assistance to over 200 charitable organizations, and donated one million in support of the water crisis in Flint.
