Shawn Mendes brings his hits to the TODAY plaza

It's Friday and that means it's time for another live performance on TODAY.

This week, on a humid day on the plaza, teen hit maker Shawn Mendes heated up our summer concert series!

Fans lined up early and packed the plaza to get a chance to see the "Stitches" singer, who kicked off the performance with that hit from his 2015 debut album, "Handwritten."
