Shawn Mendes

Purple Rain by Prince.

What’s your band practice must-have food?

French fries.

What’s the worst gig you’ve ever played? Best gig? Is Instaband your first gig?

The worst time would have to be when I stopped in the middle of a song because I sang the firs verse four times. The best gig was when I sang for the school talent show because that’s when I realized I wanted to pursue music.

Name one song that you would absolutely never cover.

“Despacito.”

What’s your writing process like?

First I come up with music, and then I’ll write a melody. Then comes the lyrics.

Any fun facts?

I sing for charity events and I’ve acted in two school plays.
