Up-and-comer Shawn Mendes has an app to thank for his music career.... That's right, an APP!
Even though Vine clips are only 6 short seconds, Shawn Mendes quickly gained a strong following after posting covers of songs to his account. Before he knew it, the 16-year-old found himself opening for international super star Austin Mahone and when Shawn's EP debuted earlier this year, he jumped to the #1 spot on iTunes within 30 minutes.
Thank you Internet! The Canadian teen already has the likes of 3 million Twitter followers!
