Ed Sheeran made some kids a lot "happier."

On Thursday, May 23, the pop star, 33, met with and performed for kids at Boston Children’s Hospital before his Boston Calling set, per NBC 10 Boston.

According to the outlet, Sheeran met and took pictures with more than 100 patients and their families.

During his visit, Sheeran performed his÷ (Divide) tracks "Perfect" and "Castle on the Hill" in the hospital’s Seacrest Studio.

The performance was also broadcasted to patients' rooms so that those who couldn't attend could still listen to his set.

In an Instagram video shared by Boston Children's Hospital on Friday, May 24, the four-time Grammy winner can be seen sitting at a desk, performing an acoustic rendition of "Perfect."

"Ended the week on a high note, with @teddysphotos at @bostonchildrens! #SeacrestStudios #EdSheeran #bostonchildrens," the caption read.

"Ed filled the hospital with such positive energy," a spokesperson for the hospital told NBC 10 in an email statement. "We know everyone here will be talking about this special day for years to come."

Sheeran has been making the rounds lately.

On May 10, he visited the Fairlight Primary School in Brighton, U.K. to perform for students, sit in on music lessons, participate in Q&As and donate five of his guitars.

During the visit — organized with Create Music, which helps provide education to musicians of all ages — Sheeran delivered live renditions of hits including "Shape of You," "Perfect" and "Bad Habits."

In a statement, the school's headteacher, Damien Jordan, said: "Ed Sheeran coming to Fairlight Primary School isn't an everyday thing, despite me claiming he was one of my celebrity mates! He was amazing with everyone he met — interested in them, chatting to them and he was very humble."

He continued: "He took time to listen to the children and encourage them. He told us how he struggled at school but how music helped him and encouraged him and how he now wanted to do the same."

Jordan added that the school has "60 children who do individual music instrument tuition every week with Create Music, as well as wider music lessons," and some of those students taught Sheeran how to play Queen's "We Will Rock You" on a glockenspiel — "which he loved!"

"The children left school telling their parents all about it and no one believed them," he said. "But it was 100% true — you had to be there to believe it."

In an interview with BBC Radio Sussex, Jordan said that none of the students knew that Sheeran was coming to the school ahead of time, while only a few staff members were aware of the visit.
