An Ed Sheeran fan got the surprise of her life while singing "Thinking Out Loud" at a Canadian mall when the Grammy-nominated singer joined her on stage for a duet.

Sheeran happened to be in a music store at West Edmonton Mall when he heard the familiar sounds of his own hit song. Just outside the store, 13-year-old Sydney Bourbeau was singing the tune as part of a fundraiser for the local Humane Society.

After the performance, Sheeran's manager contacted the girl and offered her tickets to an upcoming performance, according to MTV.

Cummings posed the video to YouTube and joked on Twitter:

Bourbeau had a tweet of her own:

The teen also posted a video of the moment, taken from another angle:

Sheerhan is making a habit out of these impromptu concerts. Earlier this year, he surprised a couple by performing that same song for them on their wedding day.
