Mars debuted as a performer in Waikiki at the age of 4 as an Elvis impersonator.
After graduating from Roosevelt High School in 2002, he left for Los Angeles where he began his career writing songs for other artists.
Mars' 2010 hit "Nothin' On You" with B.o.B was his breakout song as a pop performer.
His first solo single "Just the Way You Are" was released in 2010, which transformed the local boy into a Grammy Award winner.
Mars was the halftime show at Super Bowl XLVIII. He also won another Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album for "Unorthodox Jukebox."
Mars' final show of three concerts at the Neal Blaisdell Arena is set for Monday night.
