Jessie Ware and Ed Sheeran lead the star-studded Jamal Edwards Trust Gala

Jessie Ware showed off her chic sense of style while attending the Jamal Edwards Trust Gala in London on Tuesday.

The singer, 37, wore a black floor-length dress with a plunging neckline and carried a matching clutch bag.

She was joined at the event by pop star Ed Sheeran, 31, who cut a casual figure in a white T-shirt and black trousers.

He completed his look with a pair of white trainers and the extensive body art on his arm was showcased due to his short sleeves.

Ed was in good spirits as he fooled around with event presenter Terry Crews, 54, who looked dapper in a black tuxedo and matching bow tie.

The American actor wore a crisp white shirt and had a matching pocket square tucked into his jacket.

Elsewhere, composer Max Cyrus looked stylish in a brown suit which he paired with a black shirt.

He completed his look by opting for a pair of elegantly polished black shoes.

The late Jamal’s mother, Loose Women regular Brenda Edwards, and his sister Tanisha also posed for photos at the event.

Singer Brenda, 53, wore a royal blue pantsuit which she paired with a tiered white blouse.

She wore a pair of comfortable white sneakers and accessorised with a delicate necklace.

Tanisa wore a blue, black and white mini skirt and a matching jacket which she wore with a white top.

She wore a pair of gray and white sneakers with a picture of her brother Jamal on the side.

The Jamal Edwards Self Belief Trust was founded by his family to support the causes closest to Jamal’s heart – tackling homelessness, supporting people with mental health issues and teaching young people essential life skills.

All funds raised at Tuesday’s event will support these causes, with a focus on giving young people the opportunity to thrive in the media industry.

Continuing the work that Jamal started and in partnership with Centrepoint, a youth homelessness charity, the Trust is developing a grant program and a rehabilitation program for young people at risk of homelessness.

It will develop media careers and opportunities, and secure shelters to help young people finally emerge from homelessness.

Music entrepreneur Jamal Edwards died of cardiac arrest after an overnight cocaine and drinking session in February this year, an inquest revealed in August.

His heartbroken mother, Brenda, described him as “a beautiful and selfless person” in a statement read to the inquest. Earlier this year, she said she wanted his death to help “create more conversations about the unpredictability of recreational drugs.”

Mr Edwards was awarded an MBE for services to music in 2014 and has been an Ambassador for the Prince’s Trust.

In a statement read at the hearing, Brenda Edwards said: “Jamal was a beautiful and selfless person.

“Since growing up with his family in Acton, he has made it his personal mission to open doors for others.

“To help people through life to love and laugh. And above all, to make people happy.”

She added: “Jamal has helped so many and worked tirelessly to give people a platform.
