If we travel back in time to June 2012, we will land right in the time frame of the release of one of the most legendary and influential apps to have hit the app store: Vine. The home of 6.5-second videos was where the current pop sensation Shawn Mendes got his big break. The 14-year-old kid from Canada began uploading clips of himself singing on the app and the rest is history. Now, 8 years later, Shawn Mendes’s life has been forever changed, and the 22-year-old singer is finally giving us an inside scoop on his life in the new documentary In Wonder: The Shawn Mendes Documentary.




The Netflix documentary is set to be released on November 23 and follows Shawn’s most recent tour through North & South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. However, not only will we get to see a look inside his most recent tour but also the early years of his life, with feature footage of the star's early years in the spotlight. As Shawn put it, his documentary is not only showing us all the story of a singer but the story of a guy growing up. Eight years in the spotlight is a long time, especially for someone his age, but Mendes wants fans to understand that, behind all of the costumes, stage lights, and makeup, he is just a normal guy. Will that change his fans' mind? Will they stop coming to shows? Probably not, especially since the Mendes Army is a hard one to break apart!


Thank you for having me @jimmyfallon ?
