Jason Mraz Back in Manila for One Night Concert

“Mabuhay Manila! It's good to finally be back here in the Philippines!”

Words very well said by the 34 year old, (born June 23, 1977) singer artist. The Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter twitted these words as he arrived here in the Philippines last October 26. Jason Mraz will again perform and showcase his talents at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City this Sunday, October 30.

For his second time in the Philippines, Jason Mraz will jam alongside percussionist Toca Rivera, his long-time performing partner.

Just for the record, Jason Mraz is the one responsible for you singing "I'm Yours" whenever possible. The single peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100, giving Mraz his first top ten single. The song was on the Hot 100 for 76 weeks, beating the previous record of 69 weeks held by LeAnn Rimes' "How Do I Live". The song was a huge commercial success in the US, receiving a 5x platinum certification from the RIAA for sales of over five million. The song was successful internationally, topping the charts in New Zealand and Norway and peaking in the top ten of multiple international charts.

Just to give you some personal info about Jason, he was engaged to singer-songwriter Tristan Prettyman. On June 7, 2011, Mraz said in an interview with the Daily Beast that he and Prettyman were no longer engaged.

Mraz lives a health-conscious lifestyle and enjoys eating mostly raw vegan foods. He owns an avocado farm in Bonsall in Northern San Diego County. Mraz is an active supporter of several charities including VH1's Save The Music Foundation, MusiCares, Free the Children, Life Rolls On and SPARC. He has been named the 2010 SIMA Humanitarian of the Year. He also received the Clean Water Award in 2010 from the Surfrider Foundation. Jason performed at Farm Aid 2011 on August 13th in Kansas City, KS.

If you ask me, my favorites were, both I'm Yours and Geek in the Pink. I managed to post its vid for you to enjoy ;-)

According to Jason on his interview with the MTV News, “I get to meet a lot of awkward teenagers, and right now they're kind of feeling like they're not cool, but it's usually the geeks that are the cool people, and the people that think they're really cool are usually the geeks. But the bottom line is we're all the same people. We're all just a bunch of geeks trying to make it up as we go along.”

Tickets to “Jason Mraz: Special Acoustic Evening with Toca Rivera” are available  at the following  prices: Patron/Lower Box: P3500, Upper Box A: P2500, Upper Box B: P1500, General Admission: P800.

Hope to see you there ;-)
