Edward Christopher Sheeran, MBE (born 17 February 1991) is an English singer-songwriter. In early 2011, Sheeran independently released the extended play, No. 5 Collaborations Project. After signing with Asylum Records, his debut album, + (pronounced "plus"), was released in September 2011. It topped the UK and Australian charts, reached number five in the US, and has since been certified eight-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. "The A Team" was nominated for Song of the Year at the 2013 Grammy Awards, where he performed the song with Elton John.
ED Sheeran has revealed he is building a burial chamber at the bottom of his garden. The Shape of You singer will put the crypt within a church he is building on the grounds of his sprawling estate in Suffolk, complete with a tower, pews and stained-glass windows.
Planners gave the idea the thumbs up in 2019 and Ed has just submitted amended plans to the local council that reveal the structure will have a burial chamber.
The crypt will be constructed under the knave of the church and will be accessed via a stone slab. Drawings sent to East Suffolk District Council last month show that the chamber will be 2.7m long by 1.8m wide.
The plans add: “Burial zone beneath (penetration through slab).” Ed’s church will contain eight pews, an altar, an upstairs gallery and a stair turret with access to the tower.Read more on thesun.co.uk
