The King of Britain Ed Sheeran!

Sometime this week I posted a video of this artist.  I gave a somewhat meager description of who he was.  But today I was planning on giving a better explanation.    If you are a fan Britain and singers who come out of Britain than you are going to love Ed Sheeran.   I have to give credit to my friend who introduced me to him.  We were sitting in my dorm common room and she typed in his name, the only description was ” he was dubbed the Kind of Britain”.  I was really intrigued to see who had gotten such a great rating.  Hopefully by the end of the review you see to.

Like most great artists Ed started to play the guitar at a young age. By the age of eleven Ed was already opening for small bands.   During his time in high school he began writing his own songs about he childhood and various trips to London.  In 2005 he started recording his EP The Orange Room.  The next year he released two self titled albums and another one in 2007 titled Want Some? As the years continued he made appearances at small gigs.  He finally broke out In june 2011 with his final release of independent EP called no.5 Collaborations Project.  Soon after that he started to gain mainstream attention.  After appearing on UK TV, he soon released his debut album The A Team.  Since then he has gone on to reap awards from the Brit Awards, BT Digital Music awards, MOBO Awards, and Q awards.

This weekend’s song is not the usual kind of song.  What makes this weekends song really cool is that it is acapella.  If any of you don’t know that means there are no instruments used, you create the melody, harmony, and beat by using your voice.  Not only is he extremely talented but he has a very strong voice.  Even n the higher notes he can keep it in perfect pitch.  This guy is just amazing!  He has so much talent and I hope you guys love it and share with everyone.  Now it’s the weekend go and have fun!
