When I saw Bruno Mars and company perform the UK's Mark Ronson's tune "Up Town Funk", I thought - There is hope for Pop Music. His voice, his dancing and his music, combining R&B, funk, hip hop and pop, was very impressive. That tune was an absolute mega hit, remaining No. 1 on Billboard's Top 100 for fourteen weeks. This performer, born and raised in Hawaii, has it all - the looks, the voice, the steps and he really seems like a nice guy who loves performing. And no lip sinking for this talented singer!
And for today's 2016 Christmas Countdown, he adds a little doo wop to a well known classic - No. 9 on today's Countdown Tune - White Christmas by Bruno Mars.
OK - I can't help it. Apart from the banal late night talk fests we get through our tubes every night, we get an occasional innovative piece of entertainment from another Brit, Late Late Night's James Corden, and a host of various stars singing their hits with Corden riding in a car - Hilarious!! So, I know its not a Christmas song, but, for fans of talent and humor, here is another Bonus Track - Bruno Mars and James Corden doing Up Town Funk in Karaoke Carpool.
So Get Funky AND Merry This Christmas!!!!
