Ed Sheeran appeared out of nowhere a couple years ago. One day, he had a single slowly climbing the charts and the next he sold out Madison Square Garden in three minutes. He is a one of a kind artist who has many people falling in love with him and his music. Here are 12 reasons why everyone should love Ed Sheeran:
1. His hair is perfect
I mean look at those luscious ginger locks.
2. His live shows are better than his records
The things he can do with just an acoustic guitar are amazing.
3. He was an adorable child
Although he's just as adorable now as he was then.
4. He isn't afraid to sing about the tough stuff
Whether it's about an alcoholic father, a struggling young actress addicted to drugs or the death of a grandparent; he's written a song about it.
5. He can take a joke
After many jokes were made about how similar he looked to actor Rupert Grint, he made a whole music video about it. How many artists would do something like that?
