Triona Priestley, who received a phone call minutes before her death from singer Ed Sheeran.

Triona Priestley was a 15 year old girl residing in Dublin, Ireland that had been battling cystic fibrosis her entire life.  As her health took a turn for the worst last week, friends and family started Tweeting #SongForTri @EdSheeran on Twitter to try to get his attention and have him call the girl.  By Sunday, when he called, the hashtag was trending on Twitter with thousands of people behind the campaign.  Soon after, Sheeran’s management contacted a friend of Triona to have him contact her.

Ed Sheeran called Triona on Sunday evening and sang her favorite song to her, Little Bird, as she listened, surrounded by family and friends that she loved.  A few minutes later, she passed away after her long and tough battle with cystic fibrosis.

Sheeran Tweeted in her memory later that evening:

Rest in peace Triona, so heartbreaking x

Though a phone call was a simple thing for Ed Sheeran to do, it was a very thoughtful and caring act from the singer, to give a young girl an amazing last few minutes of her life.
