Sinéad O’Connor death: Latest tributes for Nothing Compares 2 U singer

Sinead O’Connor dies, aged 56

Police have issued a statement on the death of Irish musician Sinéad O’Connor.

O’Connor’s death was confirmed by her family in a statement provided to BBC News on Wednesday. The Irish musician died on Wednesday aged 56, after being found “unresponsive” in “a residential address” in the Lambeth area of London.

According to The Irish Sun, police said in a statement that O’Connor “was pronounced dead at the scene” and that her “death is not being treated as suspicious”.

The Dublin-born singer-songwriter’s death comes a year after the death by suicide of her 17-year-old son Shane. Throughout her life, O’Connor was known for her political activism and personal candour, as well as a string of acclaimed albums and her 1990 cover of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U”.

O’Connor changed her name to Shuhada’ Sadaqat in 2018 after converting to Islam, but continued to work and perform under her birth name.

Conor McGregor and Russell Crowe have led tributes to the “Jackie” singer.

In his lengthy tribute, Crowe shared the story of an encounter he had with O’Connor outside an Irish pub in 2022.

“We sat there the four of us and variously expressed the same thing. What an amazing woman. Peace be with your courageous heart Sinéad,” the Unhinged star wrote on Twitter.

Aisling Bea pays touching tribute to Sinead O’Connor

Aisling Bea has written a lengthy tribute to Sinead O’Connor.

On Wednesday (26 July), the Irish comedian took to Instagram to write a tribute to the late singer.

“How desperately sad the loss of Sinéad O’Connor is,” she wrote in her post. “For music and Ireland.

“I did the Late Late Show with her a few years ago, a classic Irish lineup of all sorts of us, but I’d like to think including some women making their own paths in their worlds and not ones likely to be told to be quiet. She was an absolute hero of mine and one of the few people I’ve ever been star-struck by.

Bea continued: “I think she could tell because I became a chatty mess. She was dry and funny and kind and sharp and incredibly gentle.

“There’s a beautiful documentary out about her life now which is inspiring but also so desperately sad, not just because of what she went through but because of how she was treated, often by her own. She was vilified, humiliated at times, metaphorically crucified when alone and in her twenties.

“Everything she stood up for and against then, including racism in the music industry, has been proven to have been needed and right. She wasn’t just trying to look out for herself. She was the original truth sayer who wouldn’t go easy into the night. The original “difficult” woman who didn’t make it easy. Because easy wasn’t the right thing to do and it wasn’t the truth. Gone too soon. Nothing compares to you.”
