Happy Birthday Shawn Mendes

By Danie B
Shawn Mendes was just in Orlando for his Illuminate World Tour, and today he’s turning 19!

Of course social media is flooded with Birthday wishes and tributes to Shawn, but here are 5 fun facts about the teen heartthrob!

  1. He was born in Toronto. Wait, does that mean he and Drake are cool?
  2. He learned to play the guitar by watching YouTube videos.
  3. He got his start on Vine. His song covers caught the ear of a couple of artists managers, and the rest as they say is history.
  4. He loves John Mayer. In fact, John is one of Shawn’s idols and mentors. The two even performed together back in April at a concert in Toronto.
  5. Shawn will be performing at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, so make sure you’re watching August 27!
