Shawn Mendes Joins BBC's Children In Need Lineup

Shawn Mendes has been confirmed to join the lineup for the BBC’s Children In Need appeal show.

The 22-year-old will appear on the special fundraising event in the UK, which is set to air on BBC One on November 13.

Mendes is gearing up for the release of his Netflix documentary, In Wonder, on November 23. The feature-length documentary is an intimate look at his life and journey, filmed over the last few years. It arrives just days ahead of the Canadian singer-songwriter's fourth studio album, Wonder, which is set to be released on December 4. His first three studio albums all reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

This year’s Children In Need will be celebrating its 40th anniversary culminating in a very special evening of unmissable television live from BBC Elstree Studios on Friday 13 November.

From Strictly Come Dancing, to EastEnders and Doctor Who, the fundraising spectacular will be jam-packed with exclusive sketches, exciting performances, music, dance and a few surprises! Hosted by some of the biggest names in entertainment, the show will be a brilliant spectacle not to miss and will raise money for children and young people across the UK facing a range of disadvantages, who need help now more than ever. The money raised through BBC Children in Need’s 2020 Appeal will help support local charities and projects which are providing essential frontline help to children and young people in communities throughout the UK. 

This year's show will be hosted by Mel Giedroyc, Stephen Mangan, Alex Scott MBE and Chris Ramsey.

Earlier this year during the lockdown, Britain's Children In Need and Comic Relief united for a fundraising event titled, The Big Night In, which raised over ($87 million) £67 million, and featured the premiere of the video for Radio 1's Stay Home Live Lounge charity single of Foo Fighters' 'Times Like These'. The song shot straight to No. 1 on the Official Singles Chart the week after.
