“I’ve had everything. I’ve had all my dreams come true. I was given a great gift, I was given a great community to share it, and I was given a great network of people to get it all around the world. And yet, one still experiences melancholy.”
We told you yesterday that this weekend’s episode of VH1 Storytellers: Jason Mraz was a particularly emotional one, and after watching this special preview of “I Won’t Give Up,” you’ll start to understand what we mean. Jason Mraz is one of those rare artists these days who does not hide their true selves behind a façade of slick, glossy, Top 40 friendly sound. Instead, when he sits down to write a song, he draws from his own personal reserve of life experiences, sharing all of the intimate details surrounding his life’s highs and lows with his audience. This quality is expressly why we chose him to appear on the current season of VH1 Storytellers, and we hope that you tune-in to VH1 this Friday night, June 1, at 11 p.m. ET/PT to experience the rest of this magical set.
