Meanwhile, the Grammy Award-winning singer lent his helping hand in transformation a waste land in Williamsburg, Brooklyn into a community garden on Wednesday, digging the soil and building storage bins with the locals, according to DNAinfo New York.
"If I hadn't been a singer-songwriter, I would have been a landscaper," Mraz was quoted as saying by the website.
Jason Mraz performed at the Wang Theatre last week, belting out some new songs besides his hit numbers. "I've found myself in this realm of positive music lately," The Boston Globe quoted him as saying. "I don't wake up under the rainbow; I have to make the rainbow."
According to The Boston Globe, Mraz's latest album, "YES!" is "a collaboration with the California four-piece Raining Jane." The duo made a formidable pair, sounding good together. Mraz also sang "Everything Goes Quiet," from "YES!" album before taking on "I'm Yours" and cover of Boyz II's "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday" towards the end of the show.
