In a first look at Ed Sheeran’s documentary, the singer emotionally opens up about his wife Cherry Seaborn’s health struggles. The couple faced a difficult period as Seaborn was diagnosed with a tumor while pregnant with their second child, a revelation shared by Sheeran on Instagram earlier this month. Tragically, within the same timeframe, Sheeran’s best friend, Jamal Edwards, passed away.
These life-altering events significantly impacted Sheeran’s Disney+ docu-series, “The Sum of It All,” as depicted in the trailer. Sheeran dismisses the initial notion of a documentary focused on studio work and performances, emphasizing the profound personal challenges he faced. The trailer captures a poignant moment in a car where the ‘Shape of You’ singer breaks down in tears.
The YouTube comments reflect an outpouring of support, with fans acknowledging Sheeran’s humanity amid fame. One comment notes that the series reveals Sheeran’s vulnerabilities, emphasizing his relatability. Another expresses excitement for the documentary, recognizing Sheeran’s deserving success and unwavering passion for music. A third comment extends well-wishes to Sheeran, Cherry, and their family, acknowledging the universality of real-life challenges.
The upcoming documentary coincides with Sheeran’s sixth studio album, ‘Subtract,’ promising a journey into the life of an unlikely child with a stutter who rose to global music superstardom. The series offers a searingly honest look into Sheeran’s private life, exploring universal themes that inspire his music. Described as a portrayal of Sheeran’s hardships and triumphs during a challenging period, the documentary aims to provide fans with a deeper understanding of the artist behind the music.
