Today*s Star- Jason Mraz

You can definitely call Jason Mraz the sweetheart of the acoustic pop world. People immediately think of him playing the guitar while singing romantic songs. “I’m Yours” is his most popular song and it even set a record on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart- 76 weeks as number one! It was nominated for Song of the Year and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance at the Grammy Awards in 2009. 

 

Jason grew up in Virginia and attended music school in New York City, until a West Coast road trip landed him in his current home, San Diego. He is definitely a California boy now- he owns a Vegan Cafe in Los Angeles, and even has his own avocado farm. You can hear that laid back style in his music. He is also influenced by Brazilian music and that is definitely evident in his “I’m Yours”song.

 

His fifth album came out last year, July 2014, but we haven’t really had a HUGE hit from Jason in awhile. He is doing some touring internationally and is very involved with philanthropy- he has performed in a ton of benefit concerts.
