Jason Mraz To Perform Free Concert In Myanmar

In Awareness, Human Trafficking on November 23, 2012 at 10:56 am

Singer Jason Mraz is jetting off to Myanmar next month to perform a free concert to raise awareness about human trafficking.

The I’m Yours hit-maker will headline an outdoor show at the People’s Square in Yangon on December 16th in a bid to draw attention to the international slave trade.

A number of other local musicians will participate in the show, which will be broadcast on MTV next year, and Mraz feels proud to lend his voice to the cause.

He tells the Associated Press, “I thought this was something that was abolished when Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, but all it did is become hidden from our view.”
