Our host Simon Mohos had a little fun with Shawn Desman and together they prank called some of the singer’s biggest fans!
Desman tried his best to disguise his voice but sometimes, his best just wasn’t good enough. One dedicated fan instantly recognized Desman right away.
“Is this Shawn Desman?” she asked.
“I don’t know, I don’t know what that is.”
“It is you, isn’t it?”
Luckily for us, it wasn’t the only call he made. The singer gets a little creepy and gets hung up on, is sweet on the voicemail and wishes another fan a very Happy Valentine’s Day.
R&B singer Shawn Desman is currently on the road for his first ever headlining tour!
Desman has been hitting the road to bring you the best of his new album, ALIVE, which has recently been nominated for Best R&B/Soul Recording of the Year at this year’s JUNO Awards.
Desman spills the beans on thinking outside of the box and moving into the film business. He recruited none other than Degrassi’s Melinda Shankar and Heartland’s Kaitlyn Leeb for his first movie project (which also shares the name of his latest album), Alive. Desman talks about working with the two ladies and how that experience was kind of like opening “The Shawn Desman School of Dance.”
Singer-songwriter Anjulie is currently touring all across Canada with none other than Shawn Desman!
“I’m actually a big fan of Shawn Desman, a big fan,” said the singer who previously met the R&B singer when they sang together with Elton John at last year’s Fashion Cares gala hosted by the music icon.”But this is my first time kicking it with him and seeing his shows, which I hear is amazing because I heard he can dance his ass off.”
The “You and I” singer will visit seven cities across Canada, including Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto. Anjulie is currently nominated for Dance Record of the Year for this year’s JUNO Awards.
“We’re just really excited for the tour but we’re not excited to be driving through this torrential in a van all across Canada,” she said. “It’ll be an adventure.”
In this exclusive video of Anjulie prepping for her cross country tour, the singer shows off some of her sick dance moves and dishes on how her training routine. Make sure to catch Anjulie and Shawn Desman live when they roll into your ‘hood (remaining tour dates below)!
