REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The biggest night of the year for music, the Annual Grammy Awards, was a big night for a Filipino-American singer-songwriter.

Bruno Mars nabbed the Grammy Award for best pop vocal album for his latest album “Unorthodox Jukebox”.

Mars, whose real name is Peter Hernandez, went up against artists Justin Timberlake, Robin Thick, and Lorde in the category.

He was nominated four other times…for record of the year, song of the year, best pop solo performance, and best re-mixed performance.

He dedicated his win to his Filipina mother Bernadette, who passed away last year.
