A New Jersey nonprofit needs your help to get the attention of a Grammy-award winning artist.

Fantastic Friends would love to have Bruno Mars perform at their prom.

The group holds monthly social events in Voorhees, New Jersey, for young people with special needs.

With help from volunteers, members put together the "promposal."

They came up with dance moves and new lyrics to Bruno's hit song "Uptown Funk."

Now that the video is posted, Fantastic Friends is hoping it will go viral, and get Mars' attention.

Marissa Hacker, the 19-year-old Stockton University student who founded the organization, says it would mean the world to the members.

"It would be so incredible if Bruno Mars could come to our prom because he is full of energy and he is full of fun and he has so much love," said Hacker. "And, you know, having him at our prom would just really promote our national mission on creating awareness and inclusion for people with special needs."

Prom isn't until mid-June, so there's still time for the group's wish to come true.
