My hero is Shawn Mendes, a famous singer who started singing on an app called ‘Vine’ in 2013. I chose him because he is a great songwriter and cares about his fans a lot. He even travels the world to meet them. The first time I heard him, he was on Vine singing ‘As long as You Love Me’ by Justin Bieber. He was really good at singing. He sang so beautifully. I thought his first song, “Life of the Party” was amazing.
In my first drawing, Mendes is smiling with lyrics from one of his songs in the background. It says, “We don’t have to be ordinary, make your best mistakes,” from his song ‘Ordinary’. It means we don’t have to be the same as everybody else and to live life the fullest. The audience is supposed to feel happy because he looks happy.
Shawn Mendes was born on August ,8 1998 in Toronto, Canada. When Mendes was 14, he started singing at school. He posted a video of him singing and he got over 360,000 views. At age 15, he put his first song on Itunes and received 1,000 views and made $48,000. Mendes went on tour with Austin Mahone, another famous singer in 2014, and this year soon to be with Taylor Swift. He is the youngest artist who has a song on the top 100 list. Mendes toured first with Magcon tour alongside other young artists and media sensations such as Nash Grier, Cameron Dallas, Jack And Jack, and more. He first started with Magcon then he went on tour with Mahone.
The reason why Shawn Mendes is my hero is because he writes because he likes to write. Mendes also makes videos to express his feelings. One quote I found from his song ‘The Weight’ is “You tell you were happier with him, you want me to stay, and you tell me that you needed time but, you push me away, but then you try to take me back, my heavy heart just breaks,No I can’t lift the weight.” After Mendes invited his many friends for the ‘Something Big’ music video, the teen heartthrob went broke right before his upcoming debut album ‘Handwritten’. He describes his song lyrics as ‘not super happy, but it's also not depressing." Mendes loves to sing and says that he wants to do it for his career. I don’t think he writes songs from his experiences.
My second drawing is of Mendes singing one of his songs. It says, “My heavy heart just breaks.” I choose this because he is sad about what happened to him and it makes me sad as well. I understand what he is going through. I relate to him because I once had a really good friend of mine who was super nice and caring. One day we stopped talking because we moved schools, and it broke my heart. We live close together now and when I pass by her house my heart breaks because we don’t talk anymore, like Mendes. It makes me feel better because someone relates to me.
When the two drawings are together, they are supposed to flow like his music and make the audience feel good. I see Mendes as a nice boy and a very good artist. He is important to me because he makes his fans happy and I’m glad he makes them happy. One day if I meet him I will be so happy. His music is important because I love how he writes. It’s amazing, every day I listen to his music.
