Ed Sheeran turns 28-years-old! Happy Happy Birthday Ed! I've always appreciated Ed, both as an artist and as a person. He is so nice, down-to-earth, and, of course, an incredible natural talent who has impacted the world with his music. I have met him a few times over my time at Z100, a few times towards the beginning of his career, and a few years ago after he had achieved major worldwide success. Ed was always the same- humble, kind and approachable.. just a really nice guy.
Ed posted two photos on Instagram from his 28th birthday. The first is a funny picture of 'TeddysPhotos' surrounded by balloons and a 'teddy' bear.. and an awesome facial expression. Love it! I feel like his face in this pic shows his personality.. he doesn't take himself too seriously and likes to have fun, even though he is one of the biggest artists on the world. To me, that's really important for a big star in order to stay grounded and enjoy life. The second photo is him on stage in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul surrounded by thousands of his adoring fans on his Divide Tour. So I just want to send a SWEET, happiest of birthdays to Ed. I hope you're enjoying it with both your loved ones and your fans, and know how appreciated and loved you are. Your music has connected with so many people on a human, loving level, which will last forever.
