Hi Ed

Not sure you will get this but I wanted to know if you will be playing anymore concerts in sydney. My two children aged 7 & 11 are totally totally mad about you but I was not able to get tickets for your concert first time around we are hoping fingers crossed that you will put another show on so we can buy tickets to see our favourite singer.

If I was younger, if I was beautiful...I`m not sure I would not faint if I looked into those eyes...that cheeky smile melts me. I don`t have that and never will but listening to that voice and words makes me want you more. It will never happen so I will simply continue to adore you. X

Hi Ed throughout my daughters pregnancy whenever thing out loud was played, my grand daughter always calmed down n relaxed for bedtime. Now she's very poorly in Birmingham children's hospital with septicaemia, my daughter Hazel is distraught and disillusioned at a time when she should be enjoying her new daughter, Scarlett . To add to this she became a hero on Sunday last when she saved Scarlett's life when she went floppy and stopped breathing. She's since done it again at the hospital and is awaiting a heart scan. Would you help please to heal my daughters heart and get her through this tough time....she's a huge fan and it would give her some faith in herself again if Scarlett could hear u in the flesh ... It may just give her the courage and strength she needs to fight the infection she has and put a beautiful smile back on her face. Many thanks and hope you see this message.

Ok so I'm putting myself out there, please help if you can, How can I get my daughter to met Ed Sheeran, Jessi has had multiple knee surgeries on both legs she also has Tourette's Syndrome, the only time she doesn't tick is when you sing, or when I get her to sing your songs, the only wish I have for my daughter is to meet you as I'm hoping this just might make her Tourette's stop or at least slow down, from a mother asking for 5 minutes of your time, please please help me as I'm not sure how long she can go on doing this, I have managed to get 2 tickets to see you on the 6th of December but if someone can help me get 2 VIP passes I would be very grateful, thank you for listening to me and please Ed, this is not a joke, I am so very serious, please help my child, please, thanks, Jessi Hester will be in the wheelchair as I don't think she'd be able to walk that far or stand, again if you or anyone else can help me, please do as this would mean the world to her.

Not sure if you will read this but thought you should know, When your Thinking Out Loud song was first played on the radio last year before it became a hit it made my girlfriend cry, I didn't think much of it at the time and thought it was sweet because she said it reminded her of me every time it was played.

Anyway as time went by she was still crying every time it was played no matter where she was she had no control, her friends turned the volume up as they found it amusing. We have since danced to it sat under a thousand stars to it made love while it played and still to this very day your beautiful song still brings tears to her eyes in fact now I have to turn the volume down because I don't want her to well up to much.

We first met when we were teenagers and fell in love but got separated by mistake We met up again after 42 years and now have found true love again living our lives just as we was as teenagers.

Many thanks to all the joy and soul you have brought back to the music industry and good luck with your new tour.

Respect from Russ,

Dear Ed,

I have a neighbor who is always calling for his cat. Every night, religiously, he'll call his cat by name. And every night i see that little black cat scurry across the street. And every night, there's a woman, who will walk by our house. And every night, these boys will ride their bikes to their homes near by. And every night i tell my brother to set a watch to it.

The universe always starts over when the sun rises, but i hardly think anythings changes.

When you play your music, i'm wiped out from the world. Your voice and guitar are all i hear. And i find peace among a world so chaotically sound.

Thank you.

I don't know if this truly works but I have to try and pray. My wife and I have been married since 2012 and we have a beautiful 2 year old redheaded son. Until recently I found out she has felt disconnected and emotionally detached to our marriage. We renewed our vows June 27th 2015. I found out things have been feeling distant for her for a while but she's not good with talking about her emotions. I know I'm not perfect either and I should've noticed these things sooner. Right now in her mind we are separated and in mine she's still as beautiful and I'm more in love today then I was when we first met. I'm going to take her to Tinley Park and I am hoping you play Tenerife Sea and give Steven and Anna Jung a shout out or tell my wife you're playing this song for us because Tenerife Sea is our first dance song. I just over all want her to know with the biggest gesture I can by giving her more memories of the greatest things I can give her with the many more years to come. She loves me too she just lost her way and forgot how to be herself more then a mother or a wife. I pray this is heard. I love my wife more then anything in the world and I know this will help bring us closer together because this is one of the biggest romantic gestures we can give her.
Thank you

Hey Ed I don't know if this actually works but I have to try, Your music has gotten me through a lot and ever time I listen to one of your songs I find a new part that I fall in love with. I've been playing guitar for six years now and I've been singing as long as I can remember, all I really do is sing covers (mostly of your songs) but I really want to write songs to bring my music to the next level. The songs I've written sound horrible, I just don't know how to get all of my emotions to pull into the chords. So I was just wondering if you could give me some advice? I don't even think this is real but you're my biggest inspiration so if you could give me advice that would be great.

Dear Ed
People usually write a lot. I have been trying to get in contact with you fore longest time over fb, Twitter, gmail, ou name it. You say people haven't noticed you till you got popular. I am 15 ad I have known you before you were famous. If you ask me, i don't really like the fact that you are a big hit now. Don't get me wrong, you are amazing and I think that You do such a good job. Now that you are such a big hit it is so hard to see you. You travel everywhere and places most people can't go. Your so far away when your on stage an we can't tell if ou are lip singing or not. When I went to the 2015 Mohegan sun concert that you had, my foster mom said that you were lip singing. I thought ou were good. I don't want to keep you long so I'll leave off hear. You are so amazing and don't let those haters get to you. I know you say you don't but words do hurt. Trust me I know. Well keep up the good work Ed

I love your music, in to be honest, their some of the greatest love songs in harmonies I've ever heard, I want my song to be heard by you, from you
So that's why I left it in the comment section, below this

Made by Todd Horton
Sung hopefully by Ed sheeren
Love your music Ed, have fun with this song

When Royals Kiss
Every day is the same
Love is fortune, pride is dignity
No matter the path that the dragon paves
Our love is forever intertwined in legacy
So hold my hand in walk threw the flames
Be my girl till the skies burn away
Take my love within your Palm
Tell me how you love me, how you love me doll
Understand your beautiful no matter if we fall
If we have to climb or swim away
No matter how bad we look at the end of today
We will still be together even if we die
As the queen in king of paradise in the skies
So girl hold me, in yeah I'll hold you
When the world is ending
Royals kiss
Theirs nothing left, so royals kiss
In when they kiss, the skies fade away
In when they kiss, the dragon is slayed
In when they kiss, love comes back today

So stand in the flames of a forgotten love
Cast your flames for the loved ones that burned
Understand the truth in live in the flames
Love is a handle made in the flames
Kiss me my love, we may survive
If we don't, our romance will strive
So listen close as the dragon roars
The war isn't the end of us, no
We will never die, we will never cry
Eternity together me in my wife
So give me strength, yeah, give me love
So give me honor, give me the heavens above
Take away the pain we feel, let our lives end without feel
So we go out of the walls, fight the demons in make them crawl
In as we fight, every day just gets a little bright
Fighting for love, in the kingdoms of heaven above
Heaven above yeah, fighting for our lives in heaven above

Cause when royals kiss
The flames go away
The past becomes a memory
Of a long forgotten day
In as we sing
The clouds go away
Love has survived
Yet another day
Cause royals kissed away the pain
Royals kissed away our pain
Cause royals kissed in saved the day
When royals kiss
The world goes back to the same

I just got done watching the videos again that I took and it brought me to tears. I love Ed so much, and he's my favorite person in the world. Thank u for the great show Ed, and I love U!

Dear Mr. Ed Sheeran,

You probably get a billion emails; fan mail every single day. People saying how much they love you and how well you sing, and all that mushy, gushy stuff. You're probably going to just delete this, or skip over this, too, but if you are reading this, than that's good.

I am 99.99% sure that I am classified as a "Sheeran Fan" to everybody who knows me (even my teacher). But it is way more than just a fan (don't worry, it isn't lovy dovy or anything like that).

Your songs inspire me. You're my idol, or role model. I love the way you write your songs. Also, you know how people think that all pop stars are considered "stupid"? Well, I beg to differ, because I think that you are really smart and interesting, and really different, in a good way, of course.

I have a BILLION questions I would love to ask you, but I don't want to overwhelm you, for you have so many things going on in your life already, like the previous "X" tour you just had. I'm resisting the best I can.

I have no idea who you REALLY are, because I've never actually MET you. I'm not that lucky. I don't know if you're the funny, cool and nice guy I think you are, but if you are that, than I hope to be friends one day. I would actually CARE.

I always see so many comments (I don't know if this will please you or disgust you or not) like "OMG I LOVE ED HIS VOICE HIS SO GOOD OMG OMG OMG" and stuff like that, but me, I'm not in LOVE with you, not even close. I just really admire you, and your talent.

I'm going to stop kissing up to you right now. You're probably tired of it by now, that is, if you are reading this. I think that you're really creative; all your songs have good meanings. Parents and grown-ups usually don't like boy-girl love songs. I don't know if your songs are about boy-girl love or family love or just meanings, but ALL your songs are absolutely wonderful. NOT just one of them. EVERY single one of them are good.

I dream to meet you someday, which I know will NEVER happen. You probably don't want to waste your time on dumb fans like me.

This might seem unnecessary to say or stalkerish, but I am planning to read your autobiography. Your friend, Phillip Butah, is a REALLY good artist.

Am I too gushy? I think I am. Oops, sorry!

Well, you are most likely not even interested in what I am about to say, but besides you, I really like Harry Potter. I know you've met Rupert Grint, the actor of Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies, but that is totally off topic.

To finally "wrap" this all up, I am just saying that when I heard you burst your eardrum by jumping off a yacht, I felt really bad, later on feeling happy because you were happy that you could actually get to finally rest and relax at home, and get off tour. I was also really upset that you "went off to the wild" or are planning to, but turns out that I understand, and hope for the best for you.

Also, I really like your tattoos. They're all so sweet!

A lot of people at school think I'm weird because I "like" you. "He's so ugly" they'd say, and "In the song 'Photograph', he sings so high-pitched! I didn't know boys or men could SING that high!" I don't care, though, of what them people say. I believe in you.

I know there are rumours, and that a lot of people think that you and Taylor (Swift) are a "thing", or going to date, but if you guys are just friends, I respect that; you are just friends.

Thanks so much for taking your time to read this letter.

Best luck and future to you,

Dear Ed Sheeran,
In all of your hippy love songs (I've only heard one but I'm assuming all), you mention souls. If you would care to elaborate what context these souls are, I would be incredibly appreciative.

Hello my name is Michael,
My partner and I are getting married in August in Southern Ireland and we have chosen one of your songs to be our first dance. The song means a lot to us as a great memory from our first holiday together a couple of years ago. Listen I know we're all busy men and I don't expect anything from you, I'd imagine your constantly getting mail for appearances etc. If there was any chance of a gesture of the song for the bride on the day would really make her day even more.
Thank you for your time,

My name is Allie and I am getting married July 1, 2017. My fiancé, Kyle, and I have found this song that we want to use for our first dance. We are in love with the lyrics, but unfortunately, we are not too fond of the artist’s voice. Both him and I agreed that it would be beyond perfect if it were sung by Ed Sheeran. We searched online just in case he had miraculously already done a cover and couldn’t find one.

I am not sure if it is even a “thing” for people to request famous artists to cover songs for them, but I thought that it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try. We obviously don’t need it to be a shout out or dedication or anything of the sorts- we simply want to use the audio for our first dance.

• The song is called Never Stop (Wedding Version) by Safetysuit

We would be extremely grateful to receive the honor of him doing this and hope he will consider!

I know you can't reply to this but I want you to know that I absolutely adore you. You have inspired me to start writing my own songs and I believe you have inspired so many others.
I went to your final concert you did at Mount Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand. It was the most amazing show I have ever been to and thought it was so so so amazing. One day I hope I meet you and will probably be very shy when I do but I want you to know now that, if I meet you, that I'm a major fan and

You have inspired me to want to be a singer/songwriter, but I need help writing the songs.
It would inspire me to talk to you and get help with my songs. I have not told very many people this but I have always wanted to be a singer/songwriter, I just haven't really pursued my dream until I found out about you. One of the first songs I heard was your "Lego House". I loved it so much I put it on repeat for a week, and that song was the ONLY song that I listened to. After a while I looked up the rest of your songs. I think I have maybe listened to half of them. I mostly listen to your songs. I listen to them when I am taking quizzes or tests for school (I am home schooled) and since I started listening to them I started getting better grades. I was getting C's and D's now I am getting A's and B's. I would absolutely love to be able to talk to you about songwriting. Like I said before, you are so inspiring and I think it would be awesome to get help from a professional singer/songwriter.

My husband and I are renewing our vows on 6th June 2018 and we are gonna have our first dance to Perfect. We have been married for 15 year and through that time we have been plagued with tragedy and pain. We lost our beautiful son at aged 13 10 years ago and just when life was getting better Kevin was diagnosed with leukaemia. He has AML and if that wasn't enough, the chemo caused major damage to his nerves and has made him disabled. He is one of the strongest men I have ever met and together we get through these dark times. Kevin proposed to me on 29th February 2016 (again) when he was really sick. He wanted us to renew our love for each other with a wedding day for us and our family as we was married abroad and did it without our families. We want this day to be as special as possible to reaffirm our love for one another but to also to share that love with all our friends and family . We want it to be intimate and not a grand affair. We have found the perfect venue at Tudor barn in eltham Our strength together has got us through all the pain over the years and we are as strong today as we ever was. It would make our day to have you sing our song in person. I understand this would be impossible but my mum always said, if you don't ask you don't get so.... I'm asking. Thanks for reading this. coral. Xx

Dear Ed,
I have never ever sent any fan mail to anyone in my life ever, however you have recently become the most loved person in my house. While pregnant "shape of you" was released and I loved it and played it! My baby is now 4.5months old and is the happiest baby in the world... However on the very rare occasion that she gets upset (screams) the only (really) thing that calms her down is listening to your song... people who have witnessed the first 10 seconds of her absorbing the song and then smiling and calming down cannot believe it and have begged me to contact you! Firstly THANKS and secondly - how cool is it that a baby loves your song as much as I do!! You are a legend and really, thank you!!xxxx

Sometimes life is very hard and I struggle to cope but when I listen to your songs whether it is Lego house or even Photograph it always puts a smile to my face. So I just wanted to say thanks for helping me stay strong especially in the worst of times. So thank you so much, Ed, I don't think you know how much your music helps people out. And even though I haven't met you personally hearing your music is good enough for me so thank you so very much, Ed.
