As part of Billboard's Fan Army Face-Off 2015, we've asked people to write about what being part of the fandom means to them. Read below for an essay from an Ed Sheeran fan, who are called the Sheerios.
Ed Sheeran’s fans, the Sheerios, isn’t just a group of talented, smart and amazing individuals but it is also a family. We were brought together by Ed Sheeran’s music; the beautiful lyrics and rhythm, but we stay because of who he is as a person; a lovable, talented and great role model. Ed helps us personally, inspiring us and helping us overcome our problems. He also helps us create long lasting friendships, with people from different backgrounds and countries; local and international, and even some people from different group of fandoms.
