Ed Sheeran ‘offers support’ to heartbroken Brenda Edwards at vigil for Jamal

Ed Sheeran was reportedly spotted offering his support to grieving mum Brenda Edwards and paying tribute to his late friend Jamal Edwards at the vigil to remember to music mogul in West London Tuesday evening.

The Shivers hitmaker and his wife Cherry Seaborn were said to be in attendance to pay their respects to the music star, who helped a number of aspiring singers achieve their dream when he set up SBTV.

Jamal and Ed became firm friends early on in the singer-songwriter's career, with Ed's music taking off due to his friend Jamal's efforts to get him exposure on the airwaves.

Ed was in attendance at the mass event alongside hundreds of mourners and other stars, with notable names such as Lady Leshurr also performing in honour of Jamal, who tragically died of after a sudden illness at the weekend, age 31.

Loose Women star Brenda, 52, also channelled her grief into support for her son, as she belted out Whitney Houston's Greatest Love Of All to his mural via a megaphone at the event in honour of her much-loved son.

Ed and Cherry were reportedly seen laying flowers at the same mural, as the vigil was being held in a neighbourhood in Acton.

"Ed and Cherry went to pay their respects on Tuesday night," an onlooker told The Sun.

"He kept a low profile and no one bothered him.

"After all Jamal did at the start of his career it was important for him to be there," they went on. "They stayed at the vigil for about 15 minutes before heading to see Brenda."

According to the publication, the Bad Habits star has also contacted Brenda directly to offer support.

"He's told Brenda he will support her in whatever she needs," the attendee added.
