Ed Sheeran did something so sweet for this grieving fan


Ed Sheeran was asked by a girl, Rachel Murray, to perform at her boyfriend, Less Foster's funeral after the 24-year-old passed away last week following a battle with skin cancer.

Rachel had started a #singforlee campaign on Twitter to try to get Ed to perform at the funeral.

Unfortunately, Ed could not make the funeral as he is currently on tour in New Zealand.

Instead, Ed paid his respects by sending Rachel a huge bouquet of lillies.

Rachel told the Daily Mirror: "Lee was just a normal lad. He was fun-loving and loved life. He had a constant battle with cancer for 15 months but was so positive the whole way through. You wouldn't even know he was ill.”

Lee was a huge Ed Sheeran fan and the couple had planned to go to his concert in July and discussed having "Thinking Out Loud" play at their wedding. 

Lee's funeral will take place today.

Our thoughts are with Lee's friends and family.
