Shawn Peter Raul Mendes was born in Ontario in 1998 and started his musical journey in 2013 by posting cover videos of popular songs on the social video app, Vine. He cites John Mayer, Ed Sheeran, Justin Timberlake, and Bruno Mars as his musical influences and his short snippet covers of hit songs brought millions of views and followers in a matter of months. He became the third most followed artist on Vine and in 2014 he was discovered by talent manager Andrew Gertler who got him a record deal with Island Records. He released his debut single (Life of the Party) in June that year and it entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart at #24 (making him the youngest artist to debut in the top 25 with a debut song). In April 2015 he released his debut studio album (Handwritten) and it entered the US Billboard 200 chart at #1. The album includes the UK #1 single, Stitches, and has been certified Platinum in the US.
