Ed Sheeran’s Taking A Break From Music, For The Best Reason

Ed Sheeran is proving there is nothing he can’t or wouldn’t do for his fans. He recently invited blind four-year-old Eleanor Stollery to his Wembley Stadium Concert, where he gave her a special mention. She was excited to go and if this tweet doesn’t melt your heart, then nothing will.

Ed Sheeran read about Eleanor on her Twitter page, where her family describes her battle with an inoperable brain tumor that has caused her blindness.

Perhaps even more astonishing is that the crooner plans to take some time off starting next month to help with a local charity. Ed Sheeran plans to take a month off music to work in the Sue Ryder shop in his hometown of Framlingham, Suffolk. Not only will Ed be working at the charity shop, but the International Business Times reported Sue Ryder manager Jacqui Bell revealed Ed has purchased the old police station in town and plans on turning it into a youth club.

“He purchased the old police station to open up a youth club for £1 million, so he’ll also be helping there when it’s up and running. I think he will draw the youngsters into our shop which would be good for us.”

When he’s not giving precious gifts to sick children or taking time off to help local charities, Ed Sheeran is still spreading his magic when he’s onstage. At the recent Riverbend concert, Ed filled the stage all by himself, with nothing more than his guitar and a loop pedal. No backup band required for this musician! His ability to enthrall a diverse crowd and sound just like his recordings is almost chilling. He can slow it down, speed it up, and sing a wide range of styles.

Ed’s amazing talent has landed him three Q Award nominations, including Best Live Act, Best Solo Artist, and Best Act in the World Today. Ed Sheeran certainly didn’t miss a chance to tweet about his nominations, even though he has been busy touring the U.S.

I’m nominated for best live act, best male, and best act in the world today for the Q awards. You can vote here http://t.co/ZaVfqNl4j5 fanks

But he has some stiff competition. As reported by the Daily Mail, Ed is up against some amazing talent, such as his good friend Taylor Swift, Kayne West, Foals, and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds

But whether or not Ed wins any of those awards, it is clear he has already won the hearts of millions of fans worldwide, and mainly by being a genuinely nice guy.
