A two-time Grammy award winner and six-time nominee, Mraz made pop history with his record-breaking classic single, I’m Yours, while also earning platinum and multi-platinum certifications in more than 20 countries.

Here are 6 things you may not know about Jason Mraz:

1. He's not only a singer, but also a surfer. And a damn good one. Which means two things: he obviously has a great body and secondly we might see him take a dip in Cape Town's cold waters soon... (holding thumbs!)

2. He loves animals... especially cats in a kind of obsessive, cute cuddly way (check out his Instagram).

3. Every song on the Yes! album was written by Mraz himself and Raining Jane.

4. He has this chilled, laid back lifestyle. And is even a photographer in his spare time.

I am grateful for my life; for all of life; for what I see and don't see.

5. He loves his hats.. and is almost never seen photographed without one on (which gives him a cool, hot, earth loving look, no? hmmm...)
