Illuminate (Deluxe)

Shawn Mendes

Shawn Peter Raul Mendes (born August 8, 1998 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian singer-songwriter. Since the release of his self-titled The Shawn Mendes EP and his debut single Life of the Party, he has been gaining mainstream success as a singer-songwriter and touring artist. Mendes was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and was raised in Pickering, a suburb of the city. He is the son of Karen, a real estate agent, and Manuel Mendes, a businessman. His father is of Portuguese descent (from a family from Lagos), while his mother is English. He first started posting cover videos on the popular social video app Vine in 2013 and picked up millions of views and followers in a matter of months, becoming well known for his six-second snippets of renditions of many popular songs. Artist manager Andrew Gertler discovered Mendes online in January 2014, bringing him to Island Records where he eventually signed and released his first single Life of the Party in June 2014. He is the youngest artist to debut in the top 25 with a debut song on the Billboard Hot 100, making to number 24 for the week ending July 12, 2014 at 15 years, 11 months and 4 days of age. Prior to his signing, Mendes toured as a member of the MagCon Tour alongside other young artists and social media sensations such as Nash Grier, Cameron Dallas, Jack & Jack, and more. Mendes was also on a nationwide tour with Austin Mahone as an opening act and released his debut major label EP in July, with a debut album due out later in 2014. He won the Teen Choice award in 2014 for Webstar in Music. Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.

    I've known him since Magcon. He's come far and he's only rising. Keep doing what you love because you shown us that dreams will come true if you believe in yourself, and only yourself.
