Sheeran rocks at charity show

Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran delivered an emotional performance for fans in the UK Monday night.

The 23-year-old English singer-songwriter rocked out at London’s Royal Albert Hall for a show supporting the Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity with a mission to support teens fighting terminal illnesses.

UK newspaper The Sun reports Ed opened with Give Me Love and later got concertgoers singing along to Drunk, Lego House and Kiss Me.

Noel Gallagher also took the stage in support of a teen fighting cancer, as did folk-rock singer Passenger.

Fans flocked to Twitter to praise the musicians for their performances.

“Ed Sheeran singing acapela for #teenagecancergigs Amazing emotional night,” one user wrote (sic).

“Best concert ever @passengermusic @edsheeran. In awe of all that you do @TeenageCancer!,” another added.

According to the Teenage Cancer Trust website, the organization’s shows at the Royal Albert Hall have raised more than $28 million since 2000.

One Republic, The Cure and Scottish singer Paolo Nutini are scheduled to perform at another upcoming concert for the charity.

The Who frontman Roger Daltrey, a patron of Teenage Cancer Trust, previously praised the musicians for signing on for the event.

“It’s brilliant to be able to confirm a number one act for our shows,” he previously said in a statement.

“OneRepublic have a lot of fans over here and I’m sure they’ll have a great time and will sound fantastic in the Royal Albert Hall.”

The band will take the stage for TCT on March 27.
