Shawn Mendes is currently on tour, and you’d better get your tickets because they are hot, hot, hot! Two things that you may not know about him – one is that he is Canadian. And the other is that he has four names (Shawn Peter Raul Mendes). He’s been on the scene for only about 4 years, but most people remember his first couple of hits “Stitches” and “Treat You Better”. Then came “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” and “In My Blood”. He’s won a lot of awards already in his short career. He’s had 3 number one albums, and one of only five artists to obtain a number one hit before the age of 18. He’s won American music awards, Grammy awards, Juno Awards, iHeart radio awards, and more.
Many people ask the question, is Shawn Mendes hispanic? Actually his father is Portugese, and his Mother is English. Not that it should matter to anyone, his talent is what should shine. He seems to be a very well put together kid, and he was raised from a religious family. It’s funny that someone so young would chart so highly on both pop AND adult contemporary radio. Shawn lists his influences as John Mayer, Justin Timberlake, and Ed Sheeran – and you can see that in both his work and work ethic.
