Ed Sheeran sings to sick kids at Australian hospital during surprise visit
| Last updated
Ed Sheeran has turned a sleepy Sunday into a day of magic and musical wonder at an Australian children's hospital.
The 'Thinking Out Loud' singer rocked up to the Queensland Children’s Hospital in Brisbane armed with a surgical mask and his guitar to serenade the sick little ones stuck inside.
The footage, somewhat unsurprisingly, is absolutely heartwarming.
Sheeran is currently touring Australia with his Mathematics tour, performing his greatest hits across his four albums +, x, %, and =.
One teen who had the chance to sing with the British star at his impromptu hospital ward performance said it was a dream come true.
"I was put on the spot, the cameraman told him I could sing and it was in front of everyone so I just started singing," Keasine Latu told Today.
"It was the best thing I experienced my entire life, meeting Ed Sheeran was amazing."
The teen added she was 'so nervous' when the international superstar asked her to sing with him.
Keasine, who has spent a portion of her young life battling cancer, is now free of the debilitating disease.
Her mum, Winnie, said it was incredible to see how much joy Sheeran brought in with him during his hospital visit.
"He's such a superstar and to touch children who have gone through such pain and misery and bring light to their lives, it was amazing," she told Today.
During his tour of the children's hospital, Sheeran posed for selfies and sang both for and with the kids and their families.
But this isn't the first time the 32-year-old musician has made the day of a sick kid.
In 2022, Sheeran sent a heartfelt message to one of his biggest fans.
15-year-old Aussie teen Harry Hunter listened to Sheeran's music as he battled acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.
He was initially diagnosed at only nine years old, and would listen to the 'Bad Habits' singer while he was going through treatment.
During the months he spent on-ward at the Queensland Children's Hospital, the avid fan would organise sing-a-longs with nurses to Sheeran's music.
Well, the British singer somehow got wind of this (Queensland Children's Hospital, we're looking at you) and sent Hunter a video message to tell him to keep up the good fight.
"Hey Harry, Ed Sheeran here. I heard you were a fan of my music so I wanted to make a video for you," Sheeran said, according to 9News.
Talk about making a kid's day.
