The thing about standards is that it’s easy to do them badly — but that wasn’t the case on Saturday night when Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello teamed up for a cover of “What a Wonderful World,” which is probably best known in Louis Armstrong’s classic 1967 version.
The two of them sat closely together behind a piano, with Shawn playing and Camila working her Fifth Harmony hand gestures. And while they were solid when trading verses, the song really lifted when they harmonized on the choruses, his alto holding down the low end while her higher voice lofted the melody high. The two young singers did a respectful and professional version of a song that might be older than the two of them put together.
