Brenda Edwards praises beautiful Ed Sheeran for support after son Jamal death

Loose Women's Brenda Edwards has praised Ed Sheeran for supporting her following the death of her son Jamal Edwards.

Jamal, who founded the music platform SBTV, which helped launch the careers of huge stars such as Ed and Rita Ora, died at the age of just 31 after he collapsed at his west London home in February.

Brenda, 53, has thanked Ed and his family for their support during the heart-breaking ordeal.

Speaking to The Sun, Brenda said: “Ed is a beautiful soul. He is an amazing, phenomenal talent. I love him and his whole family to the bone.

“We are close, the families are close, and he has been there and offered me support.

“He is there playing to millions on tour, but he is still concerned and worried about me. It warms my heart and touches my heart how so many people have come together to support us through something that is very upsetting and is still very raw.”

Brenda has decided to pay tribute to her son on what would be his 32nd birthday today (August 24) with a special concert.

The event, which will be held in southeast London, will see musicians such as Big Narstie and Fleur East, with all the proceeds from the ticket sales going to the Jamal Edwards Self Belief Foundation.

Jamal was awarded an MBE for services to music in 2014 at the age of just 24 and was an ambassador for the Prince’s Trust.

He helped propel the careers of many chart-topping artists, including the likes of Stomzy, Jessie J and Dave.

The inquest heard that on the night of Jamal’s death, he returned to his home around 4am after playing a DJ set in north London.

He then sat up drinking with his friend Nick Hopper, who was living in an annexe of the house at the time.

Nick said that after a while, Jamal became erratic and paranoid and started throwing things around before collapsing.

Coroner Ivor Collett said: “Jamal had taken cocaine in sufficient quantity to cause an adverse reaction brought about by cocaine toxicity. This then caused cardiac arrhythmia, which resulted in his death.”
