Ed Sheeran: Wedding Performance Of ‘Thinking Out Loud’ Surprises Couple
It’s a fairytale wedding come true that ended with a private concert from 24-year-old Ed! In a new video, we learn that Matt and Kya were all set to tie the knot when Kya’s mother tragically took her own life. They put the nuptials on hold and then struggled with the financial cost when they restarted their wedding plans.
Matt took a long shot and wrote into radio station KIIS 1065’s program, Kyle and Jackie O. They were so taken by Matt’s story that they decided to throw the couple a $65,000 wedding! But the best part came at the reception when Matt and Kya prepared for their first dance as husband and wife to Ed’s hit “Thinking Out Loud”. But why dance to just a recording when you can get Ed himself?
You can see the joy in their faces and it’s wonderful! Ed seemed to get a kick out of it to, posing with the new family for a picture he shared on Instagram.
If being a worldwide pop superstar doesn’t work out, Ed now has a fall-back career as a wedding singer.
