Girl Dies With Smile On Her Face After Ed Sheeran Sang To Her In Final Moments

The family of a terminally ill teenage girl who appealed to Ed Sheeran to come and sing to her say she died with a smile on her face seconds after hearing the star.
Fifteen-year-old Triona Priestly told her family her final wish was to hear Ed sing her favourite song 'Little Bird'. So, the family began a social media campaign #songfortri to try and get the singer's attention, which quickly went viral and ultimately got Ed's attention.
Her brother Aidan appeared on Ray D'Arcy's show on RTE One and shared the story of the popstar's kindness on the day his sister died following a battle with cystic fibrosis in April 2014.

Aidan said: "I just remember the day.
"We were in this small little ICU room.
"There was myself, my brothers, our partners, my parents, Triona's godfather, his wife and the hospital staff.
"Triona was in a huge bed, covered with tubes and machines, a little box window ahead of her on top.
"My brother Colm left the room but he returned then and he was on the phone.
"He just says ' I'm going to put you on loudspeaker quickly' and clicks it and we hear Ed Sheeran.

"He says: "Hi Triona, I hear you're a big fan." He heard that her favourite song is little bird and he begins to play and the guitar comes through.
"He plays the whole song. We tell him very quickly thanks very much and that we have to go.
"We have to hang up on him.
"It was probably a bit rude at the time.

"The doctor lifts his stethoscope to tell us that her heart has stopped.
"We take the mask off because she had been on a machine to breathe.
"Just in that moment, I can remember a burst of light comes through that window and she's smiling.
"It's this big room and my family hasn't gotten smaller.
"It's grown by the thousands of people that Triona has invited in.
"I feel that every day, it stays with us all the time."
What a lovely fella.
