Ed SHeeran

Is Ed Sheeran a pal or what? The success of his hit single, "Thinking Out Loud," off his most recent album x has helped one of his friends out of financial troubles, and paid off her mortgage. 

In case you didn't know, "Thinking Out Loud," was written by Ed and Amy Wadge. In a new interview with UK newspaper The Mirror, Ed revealed that the song Amy helped write ended up bailing her out of financial trouble.

"[Wadge] was going through financial troubles about a year ago. She drove to my house – my album was nearly done – and she asked if I could put a song from when I was 17 on the deluxe album, so she could get a little bit of money and pay the mortgage and bills and stuff. While she was there, we wrote 'Thinking Out Loud.' Now she never has to worry about money again."

Amy doesn't have to worry about money again, INDEED! "Thinking Out Loud" topped charts in countries all over the world, and went 3x Platinum in the UK. It was also became the first single to ever spend a full year in the UK Top 40.
