Now that Ed Sheeran has nabbed his first Grammy nomination -- he's up for "Song of the Year" for his hit "The A Team" -- he's being invited to prestigious Grammy events.
The British singer-songwriter will perform at a concert event called "Play It Forward: A Celebration of Music's Evolution and Influencers," taking place at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills, California on February 7, just days before the Grammy Awards. The event plans to explore the history of music's most influential figures and their "impact on the American cultural landscape."
Joining Ed on the bill for the event are country music legends Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell , as well as British soul singer Lianne La Havas . Other artists will be added to the bill in the coming weeks .
Proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Grammy Foundation's mission of preserving our musical past for future generations. Visit GrammyFoundation.org for more information.
