We’re a little under 36 hours away from the premiere of VH1 Storytellers: Jason Mraz, which will be making its debut on VH1 tomorrow night, June 1, at 11 p.m. ET/PT. We’ve already shown you an advance look at Jason’s highly emotional performance of “I Won’t Give Up,” which is indicative of the entire evening’s vibe. But before the show taped last month here in New York City, we were able to grab a few minutes with Mr. A-Z himself to ask him the creative process that he went through in trying to determine which songs from his rich catalog he was going to include in his VH1 Storytellers set.
“When I first found out I would possibly do Storytellers, I did do a tweet to the masses that said, ‘Hey, if I were to do Storytellers, which songs would you want to know the stories behind?’,” he explained to us. Considering that his @jason_mraz feed is made up of some 3.6 million followers, that’s a lot of healthy insight! “[The rest of the set] is a little combination of greatest hits, and some songs that just have a great story [behind them] that I had to put in.”
To find out which songs made Jason Mraz’s VH1 Storytellers setlist, be sure to tune-in to VH1 tomorrow night at 11 p.m. ET/PT!
