Shawn Mendes joins the lineup for the BBC’s Children In Need appeal show, the corporation’s annual fundraising drive.

The Canadian pop star will appear on the 40th annual U.K. event, which will air Nov. 13 on BBC One.

Mendes is readying the release of his fourth studio album, Wonder, on Dec. 4. and the accompanying Netflix documentary In Wonder, due out Nov. 23.

The 22-year-old is on a streak. His first three studio albums all hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and in the U.K., his last two LPs peaked at No. 3.

This year’s Children In Need show will be hosted by Mel Giedroyc, Alex Scott, Stephen Mangan and Chris Ramsey, and includes appearances by celebrated British soul singer Beverley Knight, and the cast of West End musical Six.

During the lockdown earlier in the year, Children In Need and Comic Relief joined forces to create The Big Night In. The event raised more than £67,100,000 ($87 million) for good causes and featured the premiere of the video for Radio 1’s Stay Home Live Lounge charity single, an all-star cover of Foo Fighters’ “Times Like These.”

The track went straight in at No. 1 on the Official Singles Chart the following week.
