Thanks to a Twitter campaign dubbed #SongForTri that asked the 23-year-old British guitarist to sing a song for Dublin teenager Triona Priestley, Sheeran gave the 15-year-old a phone call the same night as her death.
According to the Irish Independent, Sheeran called Priestley and sang her favorite tune, "Little Bird."
"Triona slipped into a sleep as Ed was singing to her and passed away shortly afterwards," Priestley's brother Colm told the paper. "So Ed Sheeran sang her to sleep."
