Meghan Trainor - A different kind of hero
45 minutes - that's how long it took Meghan Trainor to write the song that would go on to touch the lives of troubled girls.
She said at a press conference before her concert in Singapore on Thursday (April 23): "I wrote (All About That) Bass in 45 minutes and that's all it took, apparently, to save these lives and help these people feel better."
She was only 20 when her 2014 breakthrough song All About That Bass became one of the best-selling digital singles of all time.
But the American singer-songwriter said that her goal at first wasn't to write songs that would inspire people.
The Grammy-nominated artist only discovered how powerful a song can be after hearing how her fans, known as Megatronz, have connected with the lyrics she penned.
"Hey you saved her (my daughter's) life. She was very suicidal and depressed. She didn't like how she looked and your song helped her," Trainor recounted what a mother told her during a meet and greet session.
It seems the young singer also has the ability to reach out to parents of her Megatronz.
That's probably how she managed to get both teenagers and parents off their feet at her concert here.
The singer, who used to struggle with her body image, proved that she isn't afraid to shake it when she danced to her own songs at Hard Rock Hotel's The Coliseum.
Trainor also had some tips for teenagers with low self-esteem.
"Speaking out loud saying 'I look beautiful today' every day, that helps significantly because then you start really believing it," she advised.
Now even People has recognised Trainor's beauty.
The American magazine recently listed her as one of 2015's most beautiful women.
When asked about the real meaning of being beautiful, Trainor said: " I think if you're a good person, if you're a kind person, that's really beautiful. That's what I try to be every day."
