Ed Sheeran launched a contest this week for one lucky fan to fly to his show in New York City for a private backstage guitar lesson. 


reports that Sheeran is offering the exclusive lesson in order to raise awareness and funds for Drop4Drop, a charity aiming to provide access to clean water to people around the world. 

"I will teach you to play one of my songs on guitar, and then you’ll get a guitar that I’ll sign and give to you after the lesson,” Sheeran says in a clip promoting the contest. 

“I will pay for you to be there, so I’ll fly you out to New York, cover your hotel and give you tickets to the show." 

The competition is open until September 1, with the lucky winner being chosen on September 7.
