This Makes Us Love Ed Sheeran Even More

This makes us love Ed Sheeran even more… Triona Priestley, a 15-year-old girl battling cystic fibrosis, died in Dublin on Tuesday — just moments after her idol Ed Sheeran sang her to sleep on the phone.

Her dying wish was to make contact with Ed and was granted after family and friends started a #SongForTri campaign on Twitter that got the attention of his camp. Ed Sheeran called Triona in the hospital and sang her favorite song, "Little Bird" as she listened.

It was the last thing she ever heard.

Her brother Colm 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," he continued. "Triona slipped into a sleep as Ed was singing to her and passed away shortly afterwards." After she died, Sheeran tweeted this:
