In 2013, Ed Sheeran took the stage at the 55th Grammy Awards with his mentor.
This came about because of a request made by Elton, who envisioned a duet of Sheeran's Song Of The Year-nominated The A Team.
"I help manage him, and I believe so much in this guy," Elton recalls telling the showrunners of the young man' talent. "[I said,] 'He's gonna be a huge star. What if I do a duet with 'The A Team'? … And that's how we got Ed onto the Grammys."
