Austin Mahone debuts ‘Shadow’ on ‘Today’; live concert on Memorial Day (video)

The fans of Austin Mahone were glad it was a national holiday on Monday. The talented entertainer had fans who camped out over night to see the star perform a mini concert at the Rockefeller Plaza on Monday morning and they would have missed school if it wasn't Memorial Day. According to the “Today” show on Monday, the entertainer’s fans lined up on Sunday night for blocks in hopes to catch a glimpse of the star and hear his music.

While the fans weren’t disappointed, they got to hear a new song on Monday morning. Austin Mahone performed his current hits, "MMM Yeah" and "What About Love?" for the crowd, but it was his new song “Shadow" that got the fans screaming. Austin knew the fans wanted to hear new music and he definitely offered up his best performance to date.

The 18-year-old entertainer got his start on YouTube, but he didn't mind the national spotlight of “Today.” As the concert could have been loud and over the top (like a typical venue) Austin kept the performance tight with the feel of an intimate setting with friends. Giving fans a great moment and still catering to the cameras (and the fans watching at home) it was the perfect mix.

The fans who got to see the star might have gone home without voices. There was so much screaming from everyone in attendance, it is surprising the star could have heard the music in the background. Mahone is the latest young male artist coming up the charts and capturing the hearts of the young ladies around the world. Following in the footsteps of Justin Bieber and Cody Simpson it appears that Austin Mahone also is working on sharing his singles instead of a compilation of music.

While Austin Mahone doesn't have a full album released yet, he still has some great music coming out. "The Secret," Mahone's second extended play release, will be available on May 27.
