Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Jason Mraz headlined a historic concert last year for 70,000 fans to show the power of music at MTV Exit’s unprecedented anti-trafficking concert in Myanmar.
You can now see part of Jason’s performance online: The Freedom Song. It has touched the hearts of thousands of people fighting to end slavery.
“We’ve got some life to bring” Jason sang, while wearing a FTS “Slavery Sucks” T-shirt.
“My mission is simple: It’s to shine a light through music, which can easily be applied to why I sing these songs,” Jason tells MTV Exit.
In 2010, Jason traveled to Ghana to accompany Free the Slaves on a child slavery rescue mission. To his surprise, he was greeted by 20 former child slaves singing the Freedom Song. Jason’s tearful account of meeting slavery survivors was captured in the FTS video “The Journey of The Freedom Song.”
Jason encourages others to tell kids of all ages: “Being part of a movement is cool. That it is the coolest thing you can do. That it feels good. That it is real, and it feels real good.”
