It official. Ed Sheeran is truly one of the nicest people in the WORLD.

It's recently been revealed that the signer paid off one of his friend's mortgages with a song credit.

The 24-year-old was helping his long-time friend Amy Wadge, who was struggling financially until Ed let her contribute to his last album. 

Ed revealed to the Mirror: "She was going through financial troubles about a year ago."

"She drove to my house – my album was nearly done – and she asked if I could put a song from when I was 17 on the deluxe album, so she could get a little bit of money and pay the mortgage and bills and stuff."

"While she was there, we wrote Thinking Out Loud. Now she never has to worry about money again."

Amy admitted to the Mirror that things had gotten pretty bad.

"I'm not going to lie and say things hadn't got financially difficult. My publishing advance had run out and I wasn't seeing my family at all."

And not only has she been enjoying her new-found richness – Thinking Out Loud has gone platinum three times – she's now writing for other major stars in the business like Ben Haenow and Geri Halliwell.
