Canadian pop singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes will finally hit Manila! As part of Mendes’ 2016 World Tour, he will be performing on October 26 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Mendes, now 17 years old, released his debut album Handwritten in 2015, which debuted #1 on the Billboard 200 charts and includes #1 at Top 40 Radio, certified 4x platinum single “Stitches.” Other certified platinum singles also include“Life of the Party,” “Something Big”, and “I Know What You Did Last Summer” (duet with Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello).
The Toronto-born crooner was also named as one of TIME Magazine’s Most Influential Teens of 2014 & 2015, as well as one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in 2016, and won “Favorite New Artist” at the 2016 People’s Choice Awards.
Mendes, who cited Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, John Meyer and Ed Sheeran as his musical influences, also joined Austin Mahone and Taylor Swift on her “1989 World Tour”, as well as on his own headlining World Tour—all of which sold out in just minutes.
Looking back in 2014, Andrew Gertler discovered & introduced Mendes to Island Records, Shawn’s debut single “Life Of The Party” broke records, topping the iTunes Charts and selling over 150,000 copies in its first week due to his legions of fans. The success of the song made Shawn the youngest ever artist to break into the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 25 with a debut single.
