Vocalist
    (August 8, 1998- )
    Born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada
    Birth name is Shawn Peter Raul Mendes
    Gained a national following after posting several song covers on Vine (2013)
    Signed with Island Records after catching the attention of studio exec Andrew Gertler (2014)
    Debut album, 'Handwritten,' topped Billboard charts, reaching the #1 ranking in both the US and Canada (April 14, 2015)
    Released The Shawn Mendes EP with four original compositions (July 2014)
    Singles include 'Life of the Party,' 'Something Big,' 'Stitches,' 'Aftertaste,' 'The Weight,' 'Show You,' and 'Believe'

    He's a Harry Potter junkie.
    He was being groomed as 'the next Justin Bieber.'
    He claims his first album purchase was either Shania Twain or Hannah Montana.
    He took a crack at breaking the MTV #MostMeowsinaMinute record.
    When asked about his favorite/least favorite foods, he admitted to 'really, really hating tomatoes.'
    Diehard fans constantly have to point out that his first Billboard hit came at the age of 15 years, 11 months and 24 days.
    He invented a sexy 'alter ego' to help himself through photo-shoots which he claims to suck at otherwise (he named himself 'Benito').
    He got sucked into a one-sided 'beef' with Justin Bieber, when Bieber was asked in an interview if he had any advice for Mendes. He feigned confusion, claiming to not know who he was and expressing his intention to 'check him out' (Sept. 15, 2015)
    When questions surfaced as to whether or not Bieber was 'shading' Mendes out of jealousy, a gullible legion of Beliebers emerged to vocally defend him on social media, vehemently claiming not to 'know who Shawn Mendes is either.'
    He taught himself to play the guitar as a kid by watching YouTube tutorials.
    He is characteristically modest without coming off as fake.
    He taught himself to speak Spanish and French simultaneously to better engage with his fans.
    He won the Teen Choice award for Webstar in Music (2014).
    He was named by Time Magazine as one of the 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014, alongside Malala Yousafzai.
    He attracted the attention of Nick Jonas, who solicited his help to pick out his album cover.
    He shares a mutual admiration with Ed Sheeran (who even flew him out to LA so they could get dinner).
    His 'Life of the Party' single reached #1 on the ITunes charts in less than the first hour - 37 minutes to be specific (Jun. 2014)
    At the age of 15, he is the youngest artist (as of 2014) to debut in the top 25 with a debut song on the Billboard Hot 100, reaching #24, and breaking the record set by Justin Bieber for 'One Less Lonely Girl.'
    He handled the Bieber flap with class, saying 'we haven’t met, but I guess he just doesn’t know, I’m definitely a fan' (he actually first became popular by covering Bieber's 'As Long as You Love Me').
