Ed Sheeran is one of the most financially successful singer-songwriters in the music industry.
Ed was born in Halifax, England in 1991 and recorded his first EP in 2005, and caught the attention of a few local fans in London.
On a trip to Los Angeles in 2010, he was noticed by Jamie Foxx who decided to give me a chance. He offered him a place to stay and a recording studio to work in.
He went on to record many more songs and many more albums that ended up topping the charts all over the world.
When he released his second album, x, a star was born and he began making the majority of his money from touring.
He went on tour for his album, Divide, and between March 2017 and August 2019 it grossed $780 million.
Ed selfishly raised $40,000 at a Bristol gig for a charity aiding street sex workers and frequently donates clothing to Suffolk charity shops.
In 2017, Sheeran was honored as a Member of the Order of the British Empire for his contributions to music and charitable work, and his net worth is $200 million!
