The British musician first hit the airwaves with his hit “The A Team”.
“‘The A Team’ came from an experience I had when I did a gig at a homeless shelter,” says 21-year-old British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran of his breakout single. “I was 18 at the time and kind of quite naïve. So, I was a bit taken aback by some of the stories that I heard. I got home that night and I just wrote a lot of the lyrics. I wanted to write it so it sounded kind of upbeat, so you wouldn’t really know what it’s about, because it’s quite a dark subject.” he told Billboard.
In May of 2012, he beat out Adele and Florence and the Machine for Best Song musically and lyrically at the Ivor Novello Awards. It’s kind of like the British version of the Grammy’s.
At the closing ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics he covered the Pink Floyd song “Wish You Were Here”.
