Ed Sheeran keeps his tradition of delighting fans during his Mathematics Tour by making unexpected appearances. One of his recent visits turned out to be incredibly heartwarming. Sheeran surprised a youth orchestra recital held at the Tobin Community Center in Boston over the weekend.
In a special moment captured on video, the talented kids performed Sheeran’s latest single from his new album, ‘Eyes Closed,’ unbeknownst to them that the global star himself would be joining them. Sheeran initially sang along off-stage, holding a mic, before eventually making his way onto the stage to join the young performers.
During the event, Sheeran took a moment to converse with the young musicians and the enthusiastic audience. Witnessing the kids’ performance brought back memories of Sheeran’s own musical childhood. “I used to play cello when I was a kid. This reminds me of the things I used to play,” Sheeran shared on stage. He went on to praise the young performers, saying, “This is so good guys, so good. You guys are fantastic. Thanks for letting me play with you.”
With Sheeran now part of the performance, the group continued to captivate the audience by giving a stunning rendition of “Eyes Closed,” with Sheeran strumming his guitar. The heartwarming performance came to a close, but Sheeran wanted to express his gratitude further. He personally invited all the performers and their families to his show later in Boston.
But Sheeran’s generosity didn’t stop there. He also surprised one of the guitarists in the group with an autographed acoustic guitar. Even after the performance, Sheeran stayed behind to take a group photo with the young musicians and joined in on selfies with the audience members.
Ed Sheeran’s impromptu appearance brought pure joy and unforgettable memories to the young performers and the community.
