Khalid makes surprise appearance at Shawn Mendes concert


Thousands of fans packed the Don Haskins Center Saturday night as pop star Shawn Mendes took the stage.

The Canadian singer performed his chart-topping hits including “Treat You Better”, “In My Blood”, and other favorites.

But Mendes had a surprise up his sleeve to make the night even more memorable for his fans in the Sun City.

“I’ve got a surprise for you,” he said as he welcomed El Paso icon Khalid to the stage.

The duo then performed their new single, “Youth”, to the crowd of screaming fans.

As KTSM previously reported, the R&B star is set also to release a new EP titled “Suncity”  on October 19.
