Ed Sheeran Performs An Impromptu Gig When In New York

It was recently revealed that Ed Sheeran performed an impromptu gig on his visit to New York. Sources and witnesses revealed that the singer got on his car to give a show to the people passing by.  

The 32-year-old hitmaker managed to thrill the passers-by when he jumped on the bonnet of a car that was parked outside the pop-up shop that he owns.

The singer’s shop is located in SoHo in Manhattan, which he was visiting at the time. When he walked out, Ed got on top of the vehicle and belted out various tunes for the crowd that had gathered around him. 

Soon enough, a lot of people showed up outside ‘Ed Sheeran – The Subtract Experience Pop-Up’ to listen to the chart star serenade them with songs.

One of the songs that the 32-year-old sang included Perfect and onlookers said that it was a sweet performance, as Ed just sang for people on the street.

The performance came only a day after the singer emerged victorious in his $100 million lawsuit. The legal battle ensued because Ed had been accused of plagiarizing another artist’s song.

The co-creator of Marvin Gaye’s Let’s Get It On, Ed Townsend, has various heirs. They took to accusing the 32-year-old of copying various elements of the song for Thinking Out Loud. 

However, the singer was adamant that he had not copied anything from anyone else and denied any wrongdoing. The court ruled in Ed’s favor, and he was cleared of all plagiarism accusations.

As the star walked out of court, he announced how happy he was for his victory. In his words, it was a win for songwriters everywhere, who are wrongfully accused of copying someone else’s music.

The singer went on to say that he is just an ordinary person with a guitar, who enjoys writing music that people will love and listen to. He firmly added that he will not resort to being a piggy bank. 

According to the artist, he deserved this win and is quite happy with the ruling of the judge. But he did express frustration that baseless claims like these are taken to court at all.

He went on to say that the last eight years were spent discussing two songs in court, which are nothing like each other. Ed said that they have different melodies and lyrics. 

The singer admitted that all of his songs contain four common chords, but he further explained that they are used by songwriters across the globe and are nothing unusual. 

Ed also talked about how these four chords are just building blocks that have been used to make music for a long time. He says that they are the foundation of songwriting and will always continue to be. 

The popstar concluded his speech by saying that no one owns these chords, the same as no one can own the color blue. 

He went on to say that he had been forced to miss the funeral of his beloved grandmother, which was held in Ireland, all because he had been forced to attend his trial in New York.

The singer talked about how regretful he is for not being able to say goodbye to his grandmother. He added that he will never be able to get that time back.
