Watch Ed Sheeran surprise a fan singing his song at a mall by joining her for a duet

The Edmonton Humane Society of Canada was having a fundraiser at the West Edmonton Mall the other day, and 13-year-old Sydney Bourbeau was onstage singing Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.” What were the odds that Ed Sheeran himself would be in a music store nearby? He heard Sydney singing a familiar song and he joined her on the stage:

Sydney, who’s been taking singing lessons for about a year, but has been singing “forever,” told the Edmonton Journal it was the best thing that had ever happened to her. “I was like, should I stop? I didn’t want to stop, but I wanted to talk to him.”

Proof that Ed Sheeran is a cool guy with a big heart.
