Ed Sheeran releases video of himself playing as a child for charity
Ed Sheeran has released a video of himself playing a cello as a youngster as part of a charity campaign.
The video – available below – was made for the charity Hope and Homes for Children.
The “Shape of You” singer was joined by a host of stars including Damon Albarn, Paul Weller and Emeli Sandé who have also teamed up with the charity.
Hope and Homes for Children this week launched its “End the Silence’ campaign, which includes video testimonials from A-list musicians with the aim of creating the world's largest “online musical memory time capsule."
In the video, Sheeran is seen playing the cello as a child, as well as discussing the songs that meant the most to him in his childhood.
Sheeran continues his charity work tonight (Nov 3) with an appearance on Celebrity Goggle Box, alongside Liam Gallagher and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
This week, Ed also announced a host of rescheduled dates for the Asia leg of his World Tour, having postponed the shows recently due to sustaining injuries in a cycling accident.
The crash happened close to the singer's home, with Ed appearing on the Jonathan Ross show to confess to visiting the pub after the incident, then returning home, before finally visiting the hospital at 5am the following morning.
Ed Sheeran currently has the biggest selling album of the year.
"Divide" has sales and streaming figures of over two million whilst popular 2014 single "Thinking out Loud" has just been certified diamond for sales and streams of 10 million.Tags:
