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.
A STUDENT trawling old family photos suddenly wondered if he was related to Ed Sheeran — but it turned out to be a pic of his great aunt.
Eduard Hromkovic, 23, said the face peering back at him in the 60-year-old snap had an eerie resemblance to the singer-songwriter, 30.
He said: “I was instantly like, ‘Holy s*** — that is literally Ed Sheeran. ” Eduard, from Copenhagen, is not in contact with his great aunt and does not know her name.
He believes she is between 18 and 20 in the photo and is now in her 80s and lives near Prague. Apart from his own similar first name, he does not believe there are any links to Sheeran.Read more on thesun.co.uk
