Elizabeth’s Golden Jubilee changed Ed Sheeran’s life (video)

“It was 2002, I was 11 years old, I saw Eric Clapton play ‘Layla’ on the Jubilee stage and I knew at that moment I wanted to do this.”

The famous and multi-awarded pop star Ed Sheeran (Ed Sheeran) confessed that if it wasn’t for Queen Elizabeth, he might not have the path that everyone knows.

During a recent appearance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the musician said his life changed when he attended Queen Elizabeth’s Golden Jubilee, a spectacular event to celebrate her 50 years on the throne, he said.

“It was 2002, I was 11 years old and I didn’t play guitar at the time,” he began the story. “I was watching this thing on TV, Eric Clapton comes on and plays the first track ‘Layla’… The song ends and I knew at that moment I want to be that. I want to have a guitar and I want to sing on stage.”

And his dream came true when he performed ‘The A Team’ for the Diamond Jubilee celebration in 2012, and the song ‘Perfect’ for the Platinum Jubilee earlier this year.
