10 Ed Sheeran Ed Sheeran Edward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk.

So I had a MAJOR ed sheeran phase back in 5th grade, but then he kinda just took a break, and I forgot how good and addicting his music is and now he just released "Castle on the Hill" and "Shape of You" so now I've retrogressed and gotten back into my ed sheeran phase

Ed Sheeran is without a doubt my favourite singer. I just love his music, the lyrics, the genre, his voice, everything, my favourite song being "Castle On The Hill".

Ed sheeran is so talented in every way! His voice, his tunes, and not to mention the powerful lyrics that he writes himself! Definitely should be higher on the list!

So much talent! Wish he could sing me to sleep every night... in person of course!
