By Amanda Wicks

Nothing brightens the spirit like music, especially when it just so happens to be an in-person performance. One 9-year-old Ed Sheeran superfan, who has spent an estimated 80% of her life in the hospital, got quite the surprise when he stopped by and performed his hit single “Photograph” for her.

Melody suffers from the rare neurological disorder Rett Syndrome. She cannot walk or talk, but her mother says she understands everything. Since 2014, Melody has been taken with Sheeran’s music. During moments of extreme pain, her mother and the hospital staff play Sheeran’s songs to help her cope.

Sheeran visited Melody at Epsom Hospital in Surrey on November 9th (via The Huffington Post). He sat on her bed and played “Photograph” on the ukulele while Melody moved to the song’s rhythm, enjoying the moment with her favorite musician.
