Last night, 11th of November, the American singer-songwriter Bruno Mars performed his final show of his nearly 200-date world tour at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, becoming the first artist to sell out three back-to-back performances at a 50,000-seat venue.
Mars announced on the finale night of his 24K Magic World Tour in his home state of Hawaii that he will donate 24,000 Thanksgiving meals to Hawaii residents in need. The number 24,000 is a nod to the name of Mars’ latest Grammy-winning album 24K Magic.
It won six Grammy Awards earlier this year, including album, song and record of the year. The album includes the hit songs “That’s What I Like,” “Finesse” and “24K Magic”.
The 32-year-old will be taking part in The Salvation Army’s Hawaiian and Pacific Islands Division’s annual Thanksgiving meal program, covering the costs of 24,000 holiday meals. The country admires the entertainer’s great gesture.
The Divisional Leader Major Jeff Martin states “we are humbled and honoured by this generous donation from Hawaii’s own Bruno Mars. Because of his amazing gift, 24,000 meals will be provided to those in need on this Thanksgiving holiday in Hawaii. Bruno is a shining example of how people in Hawaii step forward and take care of one another and we are grateful to him for his ‘aloha’ and ‘kokua’”.
