After a whirlwind year filled with an acclaimed third album, a world tour, and breaking his own world record as the 1st person under 20 to score four No. 1 singles, Shawn Mendes was given the opportunity to celebrate his success with a personal invitation to the GRAMMYs museum. Read on to check out a few snaps from his big night!
In a press release for the event, the museum revealed that lucky fans would get to enjoy an “intimate conversation and performance.”
The Q & A session was hosted by GRAMMY Museum Artistic Director Scott Goldman, who was, no doubt, eager to find out a few of the Canada native’s secrets to success.
In a recent interview with Variety, the “Lost In Japan” singer admitted that the most important ingredient in his recipe for success and superstardom was getting out on the field. He said, “People forget how important groundwork is — physically being in every city, meeting people, like in a presidential campaign.”
He continued, “I’ve known nothing but that since I was 15, so it’s not like I was at one time very private and now I have to be open. I’ve always been like that. I don’t find it hard or disruptive, and I think I’m OK with it — until I’m not, anyway.”
Also in attendance at the museum was Foo Fighter frontman and former Nirvana drummer, Dave Grohl. Hopefully, the 20-year-old got to leave a cooler and more coordinated impression on the rock legend! Last time the pair met, the “The Pretender” singer was watching on as Shawn slipped and fell during his performance at the Festival d’été in Quebec this past summer.
