16MayEclectic artist, Jason Mraz

Jason Mraz is one of my favorite artists in the music industry. Its been a long time since I heard him sing. It just so happened that while I was listening to my AI7 mp3s, I noticed that one of the contestants (Jason Castro) sounded like him except that Castro couldn’t belt out.

Jason MrazJason Thomas Mraz (born June 23, 1977) is an American singer-songwriter, born and raised in Mechanicsville, Virginia, a suburb of Richmond.

Mraz is an eclectic artist with multiple and varied stylistic influences, including pop, rock, folk, jazz, country, and hip hop.

06MayThe Best of American Idol 7

I love editing sounds. So I’ve compiled some of what I think has the best VOCALS on American Idol 7. Songs were cut off at about 15-30 secs each to show off the artist’s vocal range. Total Time: 4 min, 23 sec (4.03MB, 128kbps, mp3 format)
