The mother of Grammy award-winning artist Bruno Mars has died in Hawaii, a report on the Associated Press (AP) said on Sunday.
Bernadette Hernandez, the Filipina mother of Bruno Mars died Saturday (June 1) of brain aneurysm, the Associated Press reported, quoting a publicist for Bruno Mars' label, Atlantic Records who told the news on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak on the record.
"Hernandez was 55 years old. She died in Honolulu at Queens Medical Center; no other information was given," the AP said.
According to other reports, Bruno Mars' mother suffered a severe heart attack on May 31 and was confined at the Queen's Medical Center.
According to the AP, Bernadette Hernandez was a hula dancer and a singer who immigrated from the Philippines and "nurtured her son's interest in music at an early age."
Bruno Mars expressed his adoration to his mother at an early age. In fact, he had this song I Love You, Mom dedicated to his mother that he sung when he was only 4 years old. Listen below:
