Some Jason Mraz Quotations "You can turn off the sun, but I'm still gonna shine"
“I don't know what the music is gonna do, ... It may bring peace and harmony to the entire world or it may cause the next world war.

Mraz's Impact Jason Mraz has always had a major impact on the world, with his relaxed and thoughtful look on life. However, it is with his musical talent in which he gets his message through to the world; in hits such as "I'm Yours" or "The Remedy," that both capture the world's attention, and send a message through: a message of harmony, thoughtfulness, relaxation, and love which has become known as Jason Mraz's style.
