Singer/songwriter/producer Bruno Mars visited The Recording Academy headquarters in Santa Monica, Calif., on Aug. 10, accompanied by singer/songwriter Philip Lawrence and Brian Wiggins on piano, for an intimate acoustic set including "Just The Way You Are" and "Billionaire," a track on which he collaborated with rap artist Travie McCoy.

Following the performance, Mars participated in 5 Questions With..., answering questions regarding the importance of membership in The Recording Academy, hearing his music for the first time on the radio, musical influences and mentors, and where the name Bruno Mars came from.

"I've been Bruno ever since I can remember," said Mars. "The Mars just kind of came out of nowhere...people say I'm out of this world."Subscribe NOW to GRAMMYs on YouTube: http://grm.my/1dTBF8H
