WE DANCE. WE STEAL THINGS.” proved a global blockbuster, earning multiple platinum certifications in numerous territories around the globe. One of the album’s hit songs, “I’m Yours” was a momentous #1 smash in many formats around the world, earning ASCAP’s 2010 “Song of the Year” award while also setting the record for the longest-running song in the 51-year history of Billboard’s “Hot 100.” In addition, Mraz has been feted with a number of other honors, including the Songwriters Hall of Fame’s esteemed “Hal David Starlight Award,” presented to gifted songwriters who are making a significant impact in the music industry via their original songs.
Jason was especially grateful to have been recognized by the Environmental Media Association in 2009 with the Missions In Music award and to have been asked to join former Vice President Al Gore in January 2012 for the Climate Reality fact finding expedition to Antarctica. Mraz is an outspoken advocate for a clean environment, sustainable energy, education and human equality, recently creating the Jason Mraz Foundation.
Jason Mraz’s music is known to have helped many of his fans overcome tough moments in their lives and he hopes that his concert in September will bring in a positive warm aura for the summer. “My mission is simple: it’s to shine a light through music, which can easily be applied to why I sing these songs,” Mraz says. “A little bit of love goes a long way, especially on a planet crowded with individuals struggling with seven billion different versions of human triumph and human suffering. When I remember to simply enjoy being where I am, it makes a world of difference.”
Jason Mraz’s previous concert in Manila in 2011 also at the Araneta Coliseum with percussionist Toca Rivera sold out many weeks in advance. With Jason’s new CD “Love Is A Four Letter Word” just released containing hit single “I Wont Give Up” debuting in the #1 slot on Billboard’s Digital Songs chart, Jason’s 2013 Manila engagement is once again anticipated to be another sold out concert!
