Ed Sheeran pays emotional tribute to superfan, 11, after she loses battle with illness
Melody died in her parents arms

Ed Sheeran has taken to Instagram to pay a heartfelt tribute to a young fan named Melody, who lost her life after suffering from an incurable illness.

Ed and Melody Driscoll met back in 2016 when her story touched his heart and he decided to visit her. They then reconnected at a meet and greet at a gig when he played the O2 Arena.

The 11-year-old suffered from Rett syndrome, which affects the brains development, making her unable to walk or talk.

She sadly passed away in her parents arms.

Taking to Instagram to pay tribute to his little superfan, Ed shared a picture of the pair of them together, with the message: Rest in peace beautiful Melody.

In March the singer got involved in her plight as the hospital where she was being treated had decided to withdraw pain relief for fears it would damage her liver.

Her mum Karina had argued that her daughter needed the pain relief to stop her stomach pains and mounted a lawsuit. Ed donated a signed guitar for the family to sell to raise the £50,000 the needed to pay for the suit.

Karina said: Her heart kept beating right to the end. She loved life, she was a living angel.
