Ed Sheeran has shared a video of himself playing music as a child as part of his collaboration with charity Hope and Homes for Children charity.

The Framlingham superstar took part in an interview series as part of the charity’s End the Silence campaign.

The charity’s campaign comes from the idea that when a baby in an orphanage cries there is nobody there to comfort them and as a result, these children learn not to cry which leads to lifelong mental and physical damage.

The charity wants to end the silence and is urging everyone to share their most precious musical memories from their childhood.

The project is aiming to create the world’s largest online musical memory time capsule – it also includes videos from Emeli Sandé, Paul Weller and Damon Albarn.
