Ed Sheeran Sings To Fan Just Before She Dies

Ed Sheeran serenaded an ill fan in Ireland just before she died earlier this week.

15-year-old Triona Priestley had cystic fibrosis and asked to hear from her favorite singer as her dying wish. Her brother Colm Priestly launched a Twitter campaign with hashtag #SongForTri to get Ed's attention.

The Independent reports that on Tuesday afternoon, Sheeran called Triona and performed her favorite song, "Little Bird," over the phone. Soon after, she died. Colm Priestly says, "Myself and my family would like to thank Ed Sheeran and everyone who started and supported the #SongForTri campaign. What they gave us and her was a beautiful last moment together."
