Ed Sheeran is feeling rather humbled and amazed this week, as he took time to ponder the massive progression of his career over the last few years.
The singer only came to prominence after being spotted by Elton John two years ago and in that time he has won two BRIT Awards for Best British Male and British Breakthroug, his first single “The A Team” won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically, the track was also nominated for Song of the Year at the 2013 Grammy Awards and he performed the song in duet with Elton John during the ceremony.
Sheeran has managed to crack the States this year and spent six months of 2013 touring North America with Taylor Swift. He made a guest appearance on Taylor Swift’s fourth album, Red, and also wrote songs for One Direction.
The star can’t believe how far things have come in such a short space of time and yesterday he took to Twitter to thank his fans and his supporters for helping him along the way.
“1st date of MSG is today, then two more, then the two and a half year tour for this album is done. what a way to end it. Thanks to the 175 people who came to the first date at Southampton Joiners, everyone at the gigs in between, and anyone coming to these.”
When Sheeran announced his first Madison Square Garden concert in New York, the gig sold out in just three minutes, leading to the announcement of two more shows.
Sheeran added: “Oh and a special thanks to @marknofriend. we started off just me and him in a mini van.”
Last night Ed took to the stage with a very special opening act and he later thanked the guys from Snow Patrol saying:
“massive love to @garysnowpatrol and the lads being the surprise opening act tonight, such an honour sharing the stage with these guys again”
