Irish singer Sinéad O’Connor has announced she has converted to Islam.
The artist, who is best known for her 1990 hit version of the song Nothing Compares 2 U, said she had changed her name to Shuhada’.
In a message on Twitter, she thanked fellow Muslims for their support.
She has said that her decision was “the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey” and uploaded a video of herself singing the adhan, or Islamic call to prayer.
On Thursday, Irish Imam Shaykh Dr Umar al-Qadri posted a video of the singer saying the Islamic declaration of faith.
Here is my 1st attempt at singing the Azan. I got some pronouncition wrong because emotions took me from my page… but there’ll be hundreds of others onstage to come … https://t.co/vDFyheqOOc
