Shawn Mendes tour

18 year old singer/songwriter Shawn Mendes is one of the biggest singers today as he has had two of his singles reached the Top 20 on Billboard’s Top 100 and Radio Charts.

Shawn got his start after posting a 6 second video on the app, “Vine,” of him singing an acoustic version of Justin Beibers “As Long As You Love Me” on July of 2012. Overnight he got over 100,00 likes and his follower count kept increasing. His fan base grew quickly over a course of a couple of months as he was on Vine, YouTube and Twitter.

When he began posting videos on YouTube, he posted himself doing covers and also posted videos teaching people how to play the guitar. According to an interview he did with The Telegraph UK he claims that, “If you look on YouTube and see some of my first covers you will hear that I did not sound good.” Regardless, he continued to post covers and improve his singing. Now, according to cheat sheet.com, he has over 3.5 million followers on Vine, 2.4 million on Twitter, over a million ‘likes’ on Facebook, and over a million subscribers on YouTube.
