Ed Sheeran is one of pop’s most appealing artists; if you didn't know this already, you've been living under a rock…just saying. Amazingly, Sheeran has cemented his popularity with a softness – liken him to puppy you can't resist petting. Yeah, that totally sounded odd/wrong, but in all seriousness, Sheeran’s gentleness is part of his widespread appeal.
