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 splashed out tens of thousands of pounds on his own forest at his £3.7million eco-friendly Suffolk estate. The Sun can exclusively reveal the Shape Of You singer and wife Cherry Seaborn have planted dozens of trees to make 'Sheeranville' more sustainable.
A source said: "He's spent tens of thousands of pounds on the project - and Cherry's involved too as she's into re-wilding and sustainability. "A huge field where his outdoor wildlife pond will become a dense wood in a few years and he's planted trees six deep around the perimeter to afford him privacy. "It'll help reduce the carbon footprint of him being a touring rock star too." The Sun has contacted a representative for Ed for comment.
