Ed Sheeran performs bedside gig for dying schoolgirl
Ed Sheeran has made a dying fan’s wish come true after performing a special gig at her bedside.
The flame-haired singer-songwriter was sent a video message by cancer-stricken 14-year-old Abigail Fleming, who explained that seeing him in concert was one of the things she wanted to do before she died.
But as she was too sick to travel, Sheeran decided to make a special visit back from his touring duties in France to play several of his hits at Sheffield's Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice instead.
Abigail’s mum, Maria, told The Sun: “She really loved it. He didn’t just make her day, it made her life.
“He was a complete gentleman. He flew in from Paris to London and then caught the train to Sheffield.
“Abigail gave him a card and a key ring to say thank you. He gave her a bracelet which somebody had given him for his 18th birthday.”
Abigail died shortly after but has inspired Sheeran to become an ambassador for the charity, who he plans to raise funds for by selling some of his prized Lego.
