Singer Taylor Swift has written a heart-warming note to friend and fellow singer Ed Sheeran in Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World issue.

The 27-year-old songstress has praised the "Shape of You" and called him as being destined to achieve greater heights as an artist, reported Billboard.

"Whether by choice or an unconscious evolution, when he decided on his musical ambitions, Ed became less of a boy and more of a tank. He is protected by an impenetrable and ever- present armour of enthusiasm that has helped him endure any setback, letdown or underestimation.

"His reaction to any idea that fails is to almost immediately come up with a new one. He's like a fighter who pops back up on his feet before you even noticed he'd been knocked down," wrote Taylor.

The "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" singer added how Sheeran had asked to listen to his song "Thinking Out Loud" before it won the Grammy.

"It was a few weeks later when he met me in a dance-shoe store in London, where I was picking out rehearsal outfits, and said, 'You have to hear this'. It was a song he'd just finished called 'Thinking Out Loud,' which went on to win Song of the Year at the Grammy Awards in 2016," she wrote.
