The flame-haired singer shot to fame in 2011 with his distinctive lyrics and dulcet tones. At number 49 on the Sunday Times Rich List, Ed is said to be worth £45 million, so he must be doing something right! Here are the reasons why we love Ed Sheeran...

1. His talent

There’s no denying Ed Sheeran is talented. Musician, singer, songwriter…he’s got it all. He writes his own material and we love his clever lyrics, not to mention his rapping! The proof is in the many awards Ed’s received.

2. His other successes

Ed has penned tracks for a number of other artists too. Did you know he’d co-written Love Yourself with Justin Bieber, Say You Love Me with Jessie Ware and Best Song Ever for One Direction? No…neither did we! They’re all brilliant tunes too. Just another reason why we love Ed!

3. His determination

Ed Sheeran was just 17 when he left his home town of Framlingham, Suffolk, upped-sticks and moved to London, where he played small venues and started making a name for himself. One year, Ed did over 300 gigs!

Enough said!

5. His charity work

Ed has supported various charitable causes and events over the years, including Band Aid 30, the No Cold Homes campaign by charity Turn2us and he’s an Ambassador for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice.

6. For being him

Ed Sheeran seems like a cool guy…someone you’d want to hang out with and who comes across as down-to-earth. What’s not to love about the man who said he wanted to be the nicest and hardest working guy in the industry?!
