Ed Sheeran (born 17 February 1991) is a British singer-songwriter popular for his singles 'The A Team', 'Lego House' and 'Sing'.
Net Worth: Sheeran has a net worth of $35 million (2016) according to various sources.
Childhood: Ed was born in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. His parents are art curator John Sheeran and jewelry designer Imogen Lock. While still a young child, Sheeran moved with his family to Framlingham, Suffolk. Sheeran was raised a Roman Catholic and joined a church choir at 4-years-old. He attended Thomas Mills High School where he began playing guitar and songwriting. He later became a part of the National Youth Theatre. One of his best childhood memories was seeing Damien Rice live in Ireland.
Musical career: Ed released his debut EP 'The Orange Room' in 2005. In 2008, he relocated to London in search of live gigs, playing almost every single day of the year in 2009 before later hitting the road with Just Jack. After posting a SB.TV video, he went on tour with Example. In 2010, he unveiled his 'Loose Change' EP which featured the original version of his multi-platinum song 'The A Team'. That year, he met Jamie Foxx while doing open mic nights in LA, and subsequently began recording in his studio while staying at his house. Sheeran broke into the mainstream in 2011 with his 'No. 5 Collaborations Project' EP featuring Wiley, Devlin, Ghetts and others. He soon signed to Asylum/Atlantic Records and released debut album '+' which included singles 'Drunk', 'The A Team', 'Lego House' and 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You'. The album topped the UK charts and became the ninth best-selling album of the year.
Ed Sheeran co-wrote the One Direction song 'Moments', released in 2011. The following year, he received two BRIT Awards for Best British Male Solo Artist and British Breakthrough of the Year. He then set out on a tour of the US with Snow Patrol. That year, his track 'Give Me Love' aired on 'The Vampire Diaries' episode 'Dangerous Liaisons'. He was chosen to perform at both the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in 2012 and the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony. He collaborated with Taylor Swift on her song 'Everything Has Changed' and even wrote One Direction's number one hit 'Little Things'. He performed alongside Elton John at the 2013 Grammys when the singer couldn't get Sheeran a solo spot. He set out on tour with Taylor Swift in 2013 and that year featured on Lupe Fiasco's song 'Old School Love' and Naughty Boy's 'Top Floor (Cabana)'.
In 2014, he contributed the song 'I See Fire' to the end credits of 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' and released his second number one album 'X', produced by Rick Rubin. The album peaked at number one in the UK Album chart and in the Billboard Hot 100. 'Sing' was the album's lead single and gained Sheeran his first number one in the UK.
In 2015 Ed won British Male solo Artist and British Album of the year for 'X'. He also co-hosted the MTV Europe Music Awards in the same year. He embarked on a year-long hiatus in December.
In 2016, he won two Grammys for his song 'Thinking Out Loud' and ended his hiatus. In 2017 he launched two new singles - 'Shape of You' and 'Castle on the Hill' - with the prospect of his third studio album entitled 'Divide'.
Other Ventures: In March 2015 Sheeran announced that he was to set up his own record label, Gingerbread Man Records. Jamie Lawson was the first artist to be signed to his label and his self-titled album earned him a number one in the UK albums chart.
Ed likes to be involved in charity work and performed a gig in Bristol in order to raise money for a charity that works to support street sex workers in total raising £40,000 for them.
He has also shown support for Band Aid, worked with the charity Turn2us and is the ambassador for East Anglia's Children's hospice where he frequently donates clothes.
Personal life: Sheeran is a patron of the Youth Music Theatre UK. He bought a farm in Suffolk in 2012 but lived in Tennessee and LA during 2013. In 2012 Sheeran dated Nina Nesbitt who is the subject of his songs 'Photograph' and 'Nina'. After they broke up Ed dated Athina Andrelos who works for Jamie Oliver. The relationship between them fell apart and in 2015 he was thought to be dating Cherry Seaborn who is his former high school friend.
In 2016, it was reported that Ed had been forced to undergo stitches on his face after Princess Beatrice accidently nicked him with a sword while jokingly 'knighting' James Blunt at a party at her Windsor home.
The event included both panel and fan voted categories.
The prizes for the artists of this year's iHeartRadio Music Awards were finally announced this weekend (March 11th 2018), with leading winners including Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, The Chainsmokers and Harry Styles. The show concluded the awards season for this first half of the year.

Unsurprisingly, it was Ed Sheeran who took home Male Artist of the Year as well as Song of the Year for 'Shape of You', while his close pal Taylor Swift was given Female Artist.
Presumably in which to marry his fiancee, Cherry Seaborn.
Ed Sheeran has applied to his local council to build a private chapel on his estate in Suffolk, where it is presumed he is planning to get married to his fiancée Cherry Seaborn, it has been reported.
Speculation has been rife as to where the pop star and his long-term girlfriend are planning to tie the knot, ever since Sheeran announced back in January that he had popped the question to Seaborn.
Now, on Thursday (March 1st), The Sun reports that the 27 year old has submitted an application to Suffolk Coastal District Council to build a Saxon-style chapel built from flint at his home in Framlingham.

Nobody can argue with this year's IFPI selection.
To the surprise of absolutely no-one, Ed Sheeran has been named the Global Recording Artist of the Year by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) after an exceptionally successful year. He's been hitting goal after goal over the last few months, so it's no wonder he's thinking about early retirement.

Not only has the 27-year-old hit the jackpot by being the world's best-selling recording artist of 2017, but he has also set a record by being the first with the title to also have best-selling record and single of the year, with his third studio album 'Divide' and song 'Shape of You'.

Stormzy and Dua Lipa both scooped two awards, while Sheeran lost out in all the big categories.
Indeed, it was the grime artist who took home two of the most prestigious awards of the evening, edging out the multi-platinum-selling Sheeran on both occasions to win British Male Solo Artist and the big prize of British Album of the Year for his debut LP Gang Signs & Prayer.
Having been nominated for five awards, the most of the evening and also a record for a female solo artist, 22 year old Dua Lipa took home two prizes, for British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act. However, her signature hit ‘New Rules’ was confusingly pipped to the post for British Single of the Year by the personality vacuum of Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, whose ‘Human’ single was released all the way back in July 2016.

Who needs Glastonbury when you have The Biggest Weekend?
Music fans across the UK will no doubt be lamenting the lack of Glastonbury Festival fun this year, but they can at least take comfort in the fact that the next best thing is being set up across four different locations. The Biggest Weekend will feature headliners the likes of Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and more.

The BBC has announced the first line-up for their forthcoming Biggest Weekend festival; an event which is set to take place in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland over the May Bank Holiday weekend. Plus, it's probably the best value for money you'll ever see from a festival.
He's been very busy creating his own property empire.
What do you do when you're a multi-millionaire and you can't decide on what massive property to buy? You get them all, of course! Ed Sheeran now has four houses in close proximity to each other within a quaint Suffolk village, which means he effectively owns an entire street.

The 26-year-old popstar has been investing his £40million fortune in the development of his own country estate in the area where he grew up, collecting a vast collection of properties for him and his fiancee Cherry Seaborn to enjoy.

He announced the news on social media over the weekend.
Ed Sheeran has been head over heels in love with his childhood sweetheart Cherry Seaborn for over two years now, and now they are finally sealing the deal by announcing their engagement. Of course, a lot of his female fans are now utterly heartbroken.

The 26-year-old singer-songwriter revealed the happy news via social media last week, alongside a photograph of himself with his arms around his smiling fiancee, kissing her on the cheek. It comes at the end of a tremendous year for Ed, professionally speaking.

The line-up includes just one female performer, Dua Lipa
It’s that time of the year again when award ceremonies for the arts roll around. We’ve already had the Golden Globes and the Critic’s Choice Award for films and the Grammys are BRITs are coming up for the music world. However, there is one artist who is not keen on the upcoming British music award celebrations and that is Paloma Faith.
Paloma Faith has criticised the performer line-up at February's BRIT awards
Speaking about the line-up of artists due to perform at the BRITs in February, the Only Love Can Hurt Like This hitmaker has hit out at the fact there is only one woman on the billing.
She takes her celebration of life to international levels.
Taylor Swift drops her first new video since releasing her latest album 'Reputation' in November, with her old pal Ed Sheeran and Future joining her for an international party adventure in 'End Game'. This is how party-girl Taylor celebrates life in three different continents.

Directed by Joseph Kahn, the video has been shot in three cities; we see her partying on a yacht and driving a supercar in Miami with Future, necking shots at a karaoke bar in Tokyo with Ed Sheeran, and joinging a New Year's Eve party in London complete with a pint of lager and a greasy kebab.

The Look What You Made Me Do hitmaker suffered because she decided to withhold her music from streaming services
In 2017, multi-award winning singer Taylor Swift’s critically-acclaimed album, Reputation, sold more than any other album by any other artist. However, the super star hitmaker hasn’t managed to make it to the number one spot on the Top 10 album chart in the US.
Taylor Swift's album, Reputation, sold almost two million copies in just seven weeks
Despite selling almost two million albums, it seems 1,903,000 records purchased in just seven weeks was not enough to get her to the top spot: because she withheld her music on streaming services until December.
