Jason Mraz Tops Bill At Myanmar Charity Concert


Jason Mraz

Jason Mraz has become the first world recognised artist to perform in the Asian nation of Myanmar in decades, after the 'I'm Yours' singer topped the bill at a charity concert to raise awareness of human trafficking in the city of Yangon.

The American singer closed the day-long concert today (Dec 16) in front of a crowd of approximately 50,000 people at the base of the famous hill and pilgrimage site of Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, the country's biggest city (the capital city is Naypyidaw).

Mraz' performance in Myanmar, or Burma as it is otherwise known, was accompanied by a number of other artists throughout the day, the majority of whom hail from the South-East Asian nation. The event was organised by MTV, with contributions from the American and Australian government aid agencies and the anti-slavery organization Walk Free. The fundraising effort, the main purpose of which was to raise awareness of some of the plights that have dominated Burma over the past few decades, went all but seamlessly, and all parties involved have since said how well the event went.

Last night (October 22, 2012), Ellen Degeneres, 54, was awarded the 15th Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

Her wife, the actress Portia DeRossi, was one of the first to congratulate Ellen and told reporters on the red carpet “I am very, very proud of Ellen. She's not only the funniest person I know, but she's such a good person.” She added, affectionately “I really like those little moments that only I recognize as her being her true self, when I can see she's being vulnerable.”

Portia wasn’t the only star to attend the bash at the John F Kennedy Centre for Performing Arts. The Will & Grace actor Sean Hayes said “like to think that Ellen made Will & Grace possible. And Will & Grace made it possible for Modern Family. (DeGeneres') fearlessness was her contribution and it continues to be.” The Glee star Jane Lynch said “She's the one who went in with the machete and did it all by herself,” whilst the singer Jason Mraz referred to DeGeneres as his “favorite aunt,” USA Today have reported.

Jason Mraz, Interview


Interview with Jason Mraz

After the mammoth hit that was 'I'm Yours' four years ago, you'd have though that that kind of success would go to a guy's head. Fortunately enough though Jason Mraz is not that kind of guy, still maintaining the same level of cool he has always been renown for and not letting an ounce of success get to his head. Before he heads off to the Orient to kick-start his extensive world tour in the summer, we caught up with him to talk water metaphors, the idea of love and the vast, white wilderness of Antarctica.
