Ever heard of Peter Hernandez? He’s sold a couple records and won some Grammys under the name Bruno Mars, and now, his four singing sisters will join him in Hollywood when their reality show, “The Lylas,” premieres this fall.
Tiara, Tahiti and Presley Hernandez have left their hometown of Honolulu, Hawaii to join their older sister Jaime Kailani in Los Angeles. Calling themselves the Lylas, which stands for Love You Like a Sister, the ladies have nabbed an eight-part, hour-long show to document the recording process for their first album. The girls are gorgeous, and with a brother as successful as Bruno, their journey might not be as tough as other dream-chasers who move to the City of Angels each year. But you never know.
“The Lylas are fierce, independent women, leaving their home — and in some cases their relationships and kids — for a chance at pursuing their love of music,” WEtv’s Lauren Gellert said in a statement. “Their story is one filled with all of the drama and chaos that comes from making a major life change, with the added spice of doing it alongside your sisters.”
The Lylas are following in their brother’s footsteps literally. Bruno himself moved to L.A. to live with Kailani after he graduated high school. He’s often said in interviews that his entire family had musical talent, and it sounds like they have worked together as entertainers for a while. According to Mars’ official website, the singer started watch his family performing when he was 4.
The Lylas’ debut music video “Come Back” has about 285,000 views on YouTube. (Use your hit-making powers to get your sisters some views, Bruno!) There’s some heavy autotune enhancement on the bridge, but the video also shows them playing piano and writing lyrics, so judge their talent for yourselves.
