Sinead O’Connor To Islam: Nothing Compares 2 U
Irish singer Sinead O’Connor has converted to Islam.
O’Connor, who last year changed her legal name to Magda Davitt, said she had ditched the Catholic Church for good in a message to fans on Twitter.
The 51-year-old was previously ordained a priest by a breakaway Catholic sect, the Irish Orthodox Catholic and Apostolic Church, in the late 1990s.
But in a series of recent tweets, the Dubliner revealed she had swapped the clerical collar for the hijab and become a Muslim.
The musician, who underwent intensive mental health treatment in the US last year with the help of Dr Phil, went on to post a video of herself singing the Adhan – the Islamic call to prayer.
