Lamb of God and Trey Songz didn’t get to bring home the gold, but Mechanicsville’s Jason Mraz was a mini Grammy darling, claiming two of music’s most prestigious prizes.
Mraz, who lives in San Diego, won his first-ever trophies for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for “Make it Mine” and Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals for “Lucky,” his duet with Colbie Caillat, during the Grammy pre-show yesterday.
“We’re elated,” said Mraz’s mom, June Tomes, who watched the pre-show online in Richmond. “To win both his categories, it’s amazing. He’s worked very hard.”
Mraz, who was not present at the early portion of the show, attended the evening ceremony with his father, Tom, who also lives in Mechanicsville.
