Known for his feel-good music, the singer-songwriter talked to Houston Life about spreading joy with his music, especially after the pandemic.

“Music is my greatest weapon in the war against unhappiness,” said Mraz, who is committed to making uplifting tunes, even according to him “when he is not always so positive.”

“The magic of music is what has kept me optimistic. When I make music, I like to make music to share with others because it has had a transformative effect on me, and it has changed my disposition from somewhat gray to sunshine,” said the singer who is celebrating the news that his 2008 hit “I’m Yours” just reached 1 Billion streams on Spotify.

Mraz also talked about his life as a farmer in California, where he produces avocados, passion fruit, and coffee beans through Mraz Family Farms.
