Singer Tom Grennan has paid tribute to Amber Sheehy after the eight-year-old died due to a brain tumour.

Amber died on Saturday, January 14, just one day before her ninth birthday, after being diagnosed with a medulloblastoma brain tumour at the age of five.

Grennan posted on Twitter to say: "My little superstar Amber I wish I wasn’t writing this, your passing the night before your ninth birthday has crushed me.

"I know you will be watching and singing at every gig I do and I’ll carry your spirit & smile with me forever.

"Love to the family, f**k you cancer. RIP Amber."


Norwich City and Coventry fans will pay tribute to Amber by applauding in the eighth minute of their match on Saturday.

Known for hits including Little Bit of Love and Let's Go Home Together, Grennan is due to perform in the Forest Live concert series in Thetford this summer.
