Ed Sheeran. All Songs On +, His Full-length Debut Album. Today, in my weekly section Pop & Art, I would like to speak about the Pop hit of this week:
Live from the Artists Den presents Ed Sheeran at the historic meeting house of the New York Society for Ethical Culture on Manhattan.
This week, at the historic meeting house of the New York Society for Ethical Culture on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, the English artist Ed Sheeran needed little more than his voice and his guitar to whip 700 enthusiastic fans into a fury after a expectant silence. The British star bounded effortlessly from the hip-hop infused pop of ‘Lego House,’ the latest single from his applauded debut album +, to sweetly, crooned ballads before sending an ecstatic audience home with his Grammy-nominated hit single, ‘The A Team.’
Great success! Congratulations Ed!

The English Pop singer Ed Sheeran got an early start on his career singing in his church choir while learning the guitar.

In 2011, Sheeran gained mainstream attention when his self-released EP, No. 5 Collaborations Project, reached the Number Two spot on iTunes. His full-length debut album, +, was released last year, where it went quadruple platinum and won two BRIT Awards. In the US the album has received a Grammy nomination for Song of the Year.
