This Canadian boy has captured the hearts of millions, including ours. His talent can make an audience drool. As if we need more reasons to love Shawn, we have 5 more right here!
1 . Shawn Started On a Media App
Shawn’s career started on an app that only allowed you to post six seconds at a time. Yep, he started on Vine! (RIP Vine)
He uploaded a cover of ‘As Long As You Love Me,’ and it went viral! On top of that it caught the ears of some important people in the music world. I mean technically this could have been any one of us (if we could sing), but were very glad it’s Shawn.
2 . He is Humble
Shawn knows exactly what he has and he is more than grateful for it. His rise to fame has been nothing but an uphill climb from the beginning. He had to go through the transition of Internet star, to being one of the kids that went viral, to music star! He was connected with the right people and had to ask questions about how to keep going. Asking for help is never easy and he asked for help from some of the biggest names in the music world. That will surely keep our boy humble. On top of that, he constantly tweets about how none of this is possible without his fans.
2 . The Love Shawn Has For His Fans
His fans are driven, wild and crazy in love. And we get it! We can only assume that the feelings are mutual for Shawn. He has never been anything but kind and compassionate to his fans. He even got a tattoo that a fan drew. Goals! He can even tell the difference between who is a fan and who came to see him just to sell a picture. In that case, he puts up one hell of a fight. He knows what’s right and what’s wrong, and his fans love him for it.
Could we ask for a better role model?
3 . Family Stays His Number 1 Priority
If you take a look at Shawn’s Instagram, it is filled with pictures of him and numerous family members. Our heart swells looking at little Shawn with his granny. A lot of people forget that he is just as human as the rest of us, but he makes a conscious effort to remind us.
His parents have always been very supportive of him and it shows. The relationship he has between his parents is something we all want. ❤
4 . Shawn Has A Way With Music
Shawn’s first song ‘Life Of the Party’ was released in 2014, while he was still on Vine closely following his first EP, The Shawn Mendes EP. In just the first week it sold over 48,000 copies. Since then, he has opened for artists such as Taylor Swift, and began collaborating with artists such as Camila Cabello, Julia Michaels, and Khalid. Like what kind of dream is Shawn living in?

5 . He is a proud Canadian
It is no surprise that Shawn is from Canada. He is consistently showing pride for his country, and we’re starting to want to be Canadian too. Although, he has said in the past that overly polite Canadians are annoying, we think Shawn is pretty polite. 👀 Either way, we are proud that Shawn is keeping where he comes from in his heart. We love a grounded king.
