Sitter in 2 portraits
Dublin-born O'Connor's controversial and forthright style was made evident in her debut WB Yeats-inspired album Troy (1987). Her single Nothing Compares 2 U (1990) catapulted her to international fame and was followed by the 6 million selling album I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got (1990). O'Connor has remained in demand singing with punk, country and rap acts. She released Universal Mother (1994) and co-headlined the 1998 US Lilith festival. In October 2018 she renounced Catholicism to embrace Islam, taking the Muslim name 'Shuhada' meaning 'declaration of faith'. About her decision to convert she has stated 'This is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian's journey'.
