screenshot-www.biography.com 2016-07-11 09-55-53

U.K. artist Ed Sheeran is a Grammy-winning singer/songwriter known for hit songs like “Thinking Out Loud” and “Photograph.”

Edward Christopher “Ed” Sheeran (born 17 February 1991) is an English singer-songwriter, musician, and occasional actor. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk. He dropped out of school at 16, and moved to London the following year, in 2008, to pursue a career in music. In early 2011, Sheeran independently released the extended play, No. 5 Collaborations Project, which caught the attention of Elton John and Jamie Foxx. After signing with Asylum Records, his debut album, + (read as “plus”), was released on 9 September 2011 and has since been certified six-times platinum in the UK. The album contains the single, “The A Team”, which earned him the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically. In 2012, Sheeran won the Brit Awards for Best British Male Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act.

Sheeran’s popularity abroad began in 2012. In the US, he made a guest appearance on Taylor Swift’s fourth studio album, Red. “The A Team” was nominated for Song of the Year at the 2013 Grammy Awards, where he performed the song with Elton John. He spent much of 2013 opening for Swift’s The Red Tour in North America dates. In late 2013, he performed three sold-out shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden as a headline act.

His second studio album, x (read as “multiply”), was released on 23 June 2014.[10] It peaked at number one in the UK and the US. In 2015, x won the Brit Award for Album of the Year, and he received the Ivor Novello Award for Songwriter of the Year. His single from x, “Thinking Out Loud”, earned him two Grammy Awards at the 2016 ceremony: Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. As part of his world tour, Sheeran played three sold-out concerts at London’s Wembley Stadium in July 2015, his biggest solo shows to date.
