"Ed Sheeran sang her to sleep."

Ed Sheeran fulfilled a dying fan's final wish mere hours she passed last night.

Triona Priestley, an Irish teen who suffered from cystic fibrosis since she was a child, revealed her final wish last week: She wanted to hear from Sheeran, her favorite singer.

Her friends launched a Twitter campaign, #SongForTri, to help make it a reality, and by Sunday night, the hashtag trended on Twitter with thousands of people tweeting at Sheeran.

He originally promised Priestley that he would see her once he was in Ireland in October, but with her health quickly deteriorating, her friends feared that she didn’t have that long.

Eventually, Sheeran’s management got in contact with one of Priestley’s friends to set up a phone call. Once he got on the line, he serenaded her with her favorite song, “Little Bird.”

Priestley died just minutes after Sheeran finished performing.

Priestley’s brother, Colm, thanked everyone who supported the #SongForTri campaign.

“What they gave us and her was a beautiful last moment together,” he told “Triona slipped into a sleep as Ed was singing to her and passed away shortly afterwards. So Ed Sheeran sang her to sleep.”
