12-Year-Old Busker Sings Ed Sheeran Better Than Ed Sheeran, Gains Critical Acclaim For Video


A 12-year-old girl named Allie Sherlock is a phenomenal guitarist and thanks to one video — she’s gaining worldwide attention. Her street performance of Ed Sheeran’s “Supermarket Flowers” will knock you off your feet.

Back in June, Allie uploaded the video of her performing the pop artist’s song and it immediately went viral. The internet completely fell in love with the 12-year-old Irish girl. Her talent was incredible.

As she starts singing the beautiful lyrics, “I took the supermarket flowers from the windowsill; I threw the day-old tea from the cup. Packed up the photo album Matthew had made, memories of a life that’s been loved,” her voice is mature beyond her years.

Not only is her voice absolutely magical, she’s playing the acoustic guitar flawlessly. It’s hard to believe that she is only 12-years-old. There’s no doubt that this pre-teen is an old soul.

Allie often performs on Grafton Street in Ireland but this particular video was going to change her life. It even caught the attention of Ellen Degeneres!
