UK Pop Star Ed Sheeran surprises Manurewa Intermediate with a mini concert and FREE tickets to his weekend show!
When Manurewa Intermediate children went off to school this morning, they never would have guessed they'd be getting their own mini concert by international pop star Ed Sheeran.
Deputy Principal Ross Devereux told 1News that aside from him and school leadership, none of the staff or students knew about the performance - to say the least, things got wild when he rocked up.
Jerome Tairi shared on his facebook page the childrens reaction when Ed Sheeran walked into the hall - check out the response from the 900 students below -
Sheeran played three songs for the kids with everyone singing along with him.
Ojay Solomona shared the below clip on his instagram of everyone totally hyped and singing along to his slow jam 'Perfect'.
Deputy Principal Ross Devereux also told 1News that he also gave a lovely speech to the kids about what it means to fulfil your own journey in life.
"Find that one thing that you love doing and just do it, and don't let anyone deter you from it." Sheeran said
Before he sang his final song, he then announced to the school he was giving the whole school tickets to his concert this weekend which is part of his Mathematics Tour. How good?!
