Ed Sheeran traveled 5 hours to give a private performance for two singers recently.

Jake Roche, the frontman in boyband Rixton, proposed to Jesy Nelson, one of the singers in X Factor-winning band Little Mix, during the girl group's soundcheck at Manchester Arena on Sunday.

Sheeran was also on stage, singing his love song Tenerife Sea. 

Roche posted a photo of the engagement on his Instagram account, writing: "A year ago today I met her at Manchester Arena, so it was only right, with a little help from my friend, that this happened. Best day of my life."

Nelson shared the same image, which shows Sheeran looking on, and wrote: "everyone that I love most was there to share it with us."
