Ed Sheeran to sing in TV commercial
London: Singer Ed Sheeran will make TV history in his native Britain when he takes part in an interactive advertisement during a commercial break.
The ‘Sing’ hitmaker will perform a song from his new album ‘X’ on British channel E4 after comedy sitcom ‘The Big Bang Theory’ airs, Thursday, reports contactmusic.com.
Before the sitcom starts, Sheeran will ask viewers to pick which track he will play live at the end of the programme.
Fans can vote on micro-blogging site Twitter by posting the name of their chosen song as a hashtag within that half hour slot. The results will be recorded in real time and the singer will perform the winning track.
"For me, this is a really cool way to show songs from the album that fans will have never seen performed in this way before... It gives my fans the chance to decide (which song) from the new album they want to see most. Their involvement is really important to me,” he said.
