“It was a pretty crazy move to start the film with me in the shower… That day I was in emotional pain and the director knew it was a special thing to capture.”
Shawn Mendes: In Wonder, a documentary about the 22-year-old singer’s career and life on the road, drops on Netflix today and in advance of the film’s release Mendes sat down for a virtual Q&A with eTalk’s Tyrone Edwards following an intimate virtual “premiere” of the film for fans in Canada.
The documentary follows Mendes as he embarks on an ambitious 109-stop world tour, chronicling small moments with his family, big moments like selling out the Rogers Centre in Toronto, and vulnerable moments like the singer’s agonizing decision to cancel his Sao Paolo concert because of a strain on his vocal chords.
The film opens with a shot of Mendes in the shower, following him as he walks out of the bathroom wrapped in a towel, and the singer explains why he felt it was an important moment to share with viewers.
