The live performances culminate with a very special birthday celebration at Los Angeles, CA’s Hollywood Bowl on Mraz’s birthday, Friday, June 23, marking his third headline show at the Bowl following two previous sold out appearances.

Recently, Mraz teamed up with participants from LIVE ART--an equally inclusive program supported by the Jason Mraz Foundation for both students with and without disabilities, of all ages, who use performing arts to share messages of acceptance, compassion and empathy--for a moving performance of his classic “I Won’t Give Up” at the Opening Ceremony of the 2017 Special Olympics World Winter Games in Austria.

"The opening ceremony of the Special Olympics World Winter Games was by far the most beautiful live concert experience I’ve ever been a part of,” said Mraz. “I am so honored to have been considered worthy of the task. I made some great new friends and left Schladming in awe; inspired by the athletes, coaches and families from around the world. They made a fan for life."

Mraz, an ardent advocate of arts education, recently wrote about the vital importance of the arts in a Huffington Post column.
