He may be a global superstar, but he hasn't forgotten his Irish roots.
Ed Sheeran took part in a charity gig to raise money for the London Irish Centre the other night, and by playing a set at the centre he helped to raise a whopping £250,000.
Presenter Dermot O'Leary was also part of the fundraising drive, which was organised by musician Gary Dunne and will help to revitalise the centre - with more fundraising events planned in the coming years.
Sheeran played to a crowd of around 400 people - a lot less than he's used to - while wearing an Irish soccer jersey, no less. Other Irish musicians, including Loah and Annie Mac, were also in attendance, as was Sheeran's BFF Courteney Cox and comedians Dara O'Briain and Aisling Bea.

I can’t congratulate @GaryDunne enough for bringing an A* night to the #LondonIrishCentre last night. He and the centre work tirelessly for the Irish community. Loved hearing stories from #EdSheeran about his days when Gary was his teacher . Well done all at the @LDNIrishCentre pic.twitter.com/bdBsqLnNpN
