A Ukrainian band turned soldier has received a message of support from musician Ed Sheeran.
Sheeran is performing at a benefit concert for Ukraine in Birmingham next week, and the band Antytila reached out to him via TikTok while decked out in combat gear in Kyiv.
In their post, the band asked to appear on the show remotely, although it’s not yet clear if that will happen.
Sheeran told them he “can’t wait” to hear their music and conveyed his support for the band and the people of Ukraine.
The concert for Ukraine will take place at the NEC on Tuesday March 29 and will also feature Camila Cabello, Gregory Porter and Snow Patrol. It will be shown on ITV.
Proceeds from the concert will go to the Disaster Emergency Committee’s Humanitarian Appeal for Ukraine.
