(Radio.com) Ed Sheeran covered the song he co-wrote with Justin Bieber, "Love Yourself," on Wednesday night (November 30th) during an intimate acoustic performance he gave at the East Anglian Children's Hospice gala. It marked his first show of 2016.

Sheeran's version is slightly jauntier than Bieber's more somber take. Though he had a hand in its creation, Sheeran doesn't see himself playing the song much in the future. "I'll probably never play it again, but I just want to play it once," he told the audience before he began strumming.

He also made fun of the cut he sustained on his face when Princess Beatrice reportedly pretended to knight James Blunt at a party. "Hung out with Japanese people…got my face cut open. Anyone read about that?" Sheeran quipped (via BBC News).

While Sheeran has kept a relatively low profile throughout 2016, he has made time for worth causes. Besides playing this gala, he visited a 9-year-old fan earlier in November while she was in the hospital. The little girl has spent a reported 80% of her life in hospitals and enjoyed a private serenade from Sheeran. Watch Sheeran's cover of "Love Yourself" here.
