Why Jason Mraz is one of my favorite artists

I’m doing research for my context paper about the single “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz at the moment, and it has made me remember just how much I love the guy. His concert in Oslo in 2009 was one of the best concert experiences of my life (only beaten by my HERO Unni Wilhelmsen last summer (Sorry Jason…)), and his music always makes me feel good. Which I’m pretty sure is exactly what he wants his music to do – make people feel good. This is what I wrote in my blog while looking forward to the concert:

My own photo from the concert in Oslo 2009

He is magic on stage. He is free. He stands in the middle of the music and just enjoys himself. He is where I wanna be, where I hope to be. He is music. He is not tied down by a genre or a style, he goes excactly where his inspiration takes him. He does the unexpected, and it works, it all works, it moves mountains and melts rocks.

His words matter. He feels, he means. His songs, his voice, the way he plays the guitar… He is my inspiration, and his music pulls me further in, and further ahead. I listen, I try, I understand, I crack codes. He is my soundtrack, accompanies me on my way to becoming the singer, songwriter and musician I know I am.”

I will let the following video explain further why Jason Mraz is one of my favorite artists and show just how diverse he is. He RAPS, for f*ks sake! ❤ On that note, I have to get back to my essay. 222 words to go… ;-P Enjoy, and have a lovely Sunday afternoon! xx
