Ed Sheeran Surprises A Singing Girl At A Mall
Jun 18, 2015
Just two weeks after buying tickets to a Sheeran concert, New Zealander Jess Knight was diagnosed with leukemia. Too sick to attend the gig, friends started a campaign to get Sheeran to visit her. They created a Facebook event and tweeted using the hashtag #KiaOraEdPlsVisitJess. Their efforts went viral, gaining attention from local and national media outlets.
While celebrating her 20th birthday in the hospital, Knight got the best present she could ask for when Sheeran himself appeared. He stayed and chatted with her before taking time to visit other patients, too.
This teen was certainly in the right place at the right time. It also doesn't hurt that her favorite musician is Ed Sheeran, who has made a habit of surprising his fans.
