David Mitchell is an award-winning novelist from England, known for best-selling works such as Ghostwritten, Number9Dream, Cloud Atlas, and the semi-autobiographical novel about his struggle with speaking, Black Swan Green.
Award-winning singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran shares about his stuttering during an AIS event June 8th in New York City.
While Sheeran may be famous now, he used to just be a bullied kid with a debilitating stutter, he shared. But one thing helped him overcome that stutter and a troubled childhood: Music.
When you hear about famous people who stutter, you often hear stories about the struggles they faced as a young child, before they outgrew or overcame their stuttering. Annie Glenn has a different story to tell. The wife of John Glenn, the first U.S. astronaut to orbit the earth, Annie Glenn lived a very public life with a severe stutter for more than 50 years.
Now a seasoned singer/songwriter, Ed Sheeran first burst onto the music scene with his hit single, The A Team, in 2011. Sheeran hit No. 1 on the iTunes chart before even signing with a record label. Since then, songs like Give Me Love and Thinking Out Loud have kept Sheeran at the top of the charts. He is also widely recognized for collaborating with big artists such as One Direction and Taylor Swift.
