Looking back at past Project Ethos events, in 2010 we watched Bruno Mars perform live on the Project Ethos stage at the Music Box singing “Billionaire,” “Nothing On You” and even a Michael Jackson cover, “Dirty Diana.” At this show, we remember Bruno Mars as the new artist on the scene who just started getting airplay on 102.7’s KIIS-FM. In between songs, he told the audience he needed an agent and with his powerful vocals, it was clear that he was going to blow up. Flash forward a few years and Bruno Mars is a Grammy winning artist and is one of music’s most recognized voices singing hits like, “Just the Way You Are,” “Grenade,” “The Lazy Song,” and his latest, “It Will Rain.” We’ll always remember him as Project Ethos’ breakout star.
In 2011, we saw the debut of Will.I.Am’s “I Am” fashion line and the debut of Pete Wentz’s musical project, Black Cards. See concert footage below courtesy of MrJor004 on Youtube:
Project Ethos never fails to deliver and throughout the years, the events have grown and it’s no wonder buyers are attracted to the event to see the latest in fashion.
