Shawn Mendes with Shon Burnett on The Next Star 7

In 2014, as a Top 6 Series Finalist on YTV Canada's The Next Star 7, Shon Burnett had an opportunity to not only perform some of his favourite songs, but also to meet some of the artists behind those songs. One of those artists was Shawn Mendes (pictured above), an incredibly talented and humble guy.

"Talking with Shawn was like talking with my best friend," says Shon. "Even though we had never met before, he had a way of making you feel special, and that's something that I'll never forget."

ON SUCCESS The reason we’re successful, darling? My overall charisma, of course.
— Freddie Mercury
