Shawn Mendes, a 19-year old multi-talented musician from Toronto, gave a performance worthy of a more experienced musician. He has incredible stage presence and knows how to charm the crowd.

Shawn Mendes, a 19-year-old pop star from Toronto, took over the Plains of Abraham on July 8. Thousands of representatives of Generation Z (people born after 1995) crowded around the Bell stage to see their Canadian idol. Children, teens and young adults started screaming the singer’s name long before he stepped onto the stage.
