Sheeran's record Divide, which became the fastest-selling album by a male artist in the United Kingdom, is set to stay at the top of the album chart, followed by Depeche Mode's Spirit at number two.
Among her other best known songs are I'll Be Seeing You, The White Cliffs of Dover, A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square and There'll Always Be An England.
To celebrate her 100th birthday, Vera Lynn has released a new album.The record features new re-orchestrated versions of her most beloved music alongside her original vocals.
Standing beneath it at the private event will be war veterans, WWII re-enactors, 1940s singers and supporters of Dame Vera Lynn's Children's Charity.
It comes eight years after Dame Vera became the oldest living artist to land a United Kingdom number one album and marks an incredible 93 years in the industry after making her stage debut aged seven.
In 1953, she formed the cerebral palsy charity, SOS and in 1976, the Vera Lynn Charity Breast Cancer Research Trust was founded with Lynn becoming its chairperson and later its president.
Dame Vera, who made her stage debut at the age of seven, was asked the secret of living to a good age.
The care home, joined by friends and family on March 20, celebrated the milestone birthday of "The Forces Sweetheart". with a slice of birthday cake and a tuneful rendition of Vera's popular war-time song "We'll Meet Again".
Throughout her career, Lynn has been recognised with various awards.
"The different places and the wonderful people one meets and the many, many fans from across the world who have supported me".
Dame Vera Lynn is 100 today and her centenary is being marked in iconic style with a 350ft image projected on to the White Cliffs of Dover in a special tribute.
Speaking of her achievements, Lynn said, "It is an unprecedented honour to have my birthday marked in such a attractive way and I am truly thrilled by this wonderful gesture".
Like all Britons who reach 100, Lynn will receive congratulations from Queen Elizabeth II.
She also praised the students for a "very well sung" medley and was virtually presented with a vanilla sponge cake shaped into the number 100.
