Ed Sheeran’s famous voice is about to put you to sleep. 

The “Bad Habits” singer is joining the league of celebrities who have taken part in CBeebies Bedtime Stories.

The popular segment is the last thing to air before the British children’s channel stops broadcasting for the evening and features top names reading storybooks. Those whose famous voices have helped kids go to bed include Ryan Reynolds, David Schwimmer, Tom Hiddleston, Dolly Parton, Sir Elton John, and Orlando Bloom.

Sheeran’s story, in particular, will reach close to him as the former stutterer will read a story about a little boy with a speech impediment. He previously shared that he managed to overcome his own stutter by rapping to Eminem. 

“I’m delighted to be reading this story for CBeebies Bedtime Stories, especially as I’m a new dad myself,” the Grammy winner said of his reading I Talk Like a River by Jordan Scott and Sydney Smith. “I hope the story helps inspire and support other children who stutter.”

Make sure you tune in on November 5th for your @Ed-time” story!
