Ed Sheeran Serenades Dying Fan
Helping to fulfill one of his devoted fan’s wishes, Ed Sheeran serenaded 15-year-old Triona Priestley on Sunday (March 30) over the phone.
While battling cystic fibrosis complications, friends and family of the Scottish teenager took to Twitter asking for Ed to perform her favorite song “Little Bird” as her final wish, using the hashtag #SongForTri.
Immediately after #SongForTri began to trend, Sheeran’s management contacted Triona’s friend Lucy Hanlon to arrange the phone between the girl and her idol.
After the exchange between Miss Priestley and the “Lego House” hitmaker, Lucy took to her Facebook and wrote, “Ed rang Triona and personally sang ‘Little Bird’ to her as she took her last breaths. Triona left us listening to her idol surrounded by all the people she loved.”
“People’s respect is incredible. We would like to thank everyone,” she added.
