Famous singer takes new name “Shuhada Davitt.
Irish singer Sinead O’Connor has revealed she has renounced Catholicism and converted to Islam, taking the new name “Shuhada’ Davitt.”
“This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim,” the 51-year-old singer wrote on Twitter.
“This is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey. All scripture study leads to Islam. Which makes all other scriptures redundant,” she wrote.
“I will be given (another) new name. It will be Shuhada’.”
O’connor had changed her legal name to Magda Davitt last year.
She also posted a video of herself reciting the Adhan — the Islamic call to prayer.
The singer found international fame with a series of albums and singles in late 1980s, including the 1990 hit “Nothing Compares 2 You”.
