Irish legend Sinead O’Connor recently passed away at the age of 56 after years of mental health battles, her ‘devastated’ family confirmed via Daily Mail. She posted this last photo on her second Twitter account.

The Irish singer gained across the world in 1990 by her heartrending cover of Prince’s Nothing Compares 2 U. It comes a year after the mother-of-four’s son Shane, 17, took his life in January 2022 after escaping the hospital while on suicide watch.

At the time of her death, the musician, who changed her name to Shuhada’ Sadaqat in 2018 when she converted to Islam, was thought to be spending her time between Co Roscommon, Ireland, and London.

In her last Tweet, O’Connor posted a photo of Shane and said:

”Been living as undead night creature since. He was the love of my life, the lamp of my soul. We were one soul in two halves. He was the only person who ever loved me unconditionally. I am lost in the bardo without him.”

The mother-of-four also posted a series of Spotify links to relatively sad and heart breaking songs, including one she dedicated to ‘all mothers of Suicided children’.

In a statement, O’Connor’s family said: ”It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Sinéad. Her family and friends are devastated and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”

After signing with Ensign Records she released her first album The Lion And The Cobra in 1987. Her second album I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got, which came out in 1990, sold more than seven million copies and included her breakthrough hit Nothing Compares 2 U.

She wrote other hits including You Made Me The Thief Of Your Heart – for the soundtrack of Daniel Day-Lewis film In the Name of the Father – Drink Before The War and This Is The Day.

She released 10 studio albums in her career, and Nothing Compares 2 U was named the number one world single in 1990 by the Billboard Music Awards. Nothing Compares 2 U received three Grammy nominations and Rolling Stone named her Artist of the Year in 1991.
