Jason Mraz’s new album Look For The Good has a real feelgood feel about it.
With Look For The Good dropping on Juneteenth, the sense of occasion wasn’t lost on Mraz. He’s decided to donate all profits from it to non-profit organizations.
“On June 19th, a historic day in the advancement of equality, I am proud to stand in solidarity with and be of service to Black Lives by donating all of my earnings from sales and streams of my new LP recording, Look For The Good,” explains Mraz in a statement.
The $250,000 Mraz received as an advance on royalties will go to six beneficiaries, Black Lives Matter, San Diego Young Artists Music Academy, RISE San Diego, Grassroots Law Project, Center on Policy Initiatives, Equal Justice Initiative.
“My personal engagement with philanthropy has never been motivated by a press opportunity,” he continues. “But today I am announcing my contributions publicly in hopes of inspiring other creators and leaders in business to do the same – to share the wealth, to share the profits, and to acknowledge that life is only great when it’s great for everyone.”
Look For The Good spans twelve songs and runs to an hour. Stream it below and read Mraz’s statement in full here.
