Tributes flow for legendary singer Sinéad O’Connor

After her death on Wednesday, Sinéad O'Connor, an Irish singer and activist who was known for being "always brave," is getting a lot of praise for the way her music "changed the industry." The famous Nothing Compares 2 U singer who was known for her unique voice and political protests died on Wednesday, her family said.
The 56-year-old's family said in a statement:
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.- Sinead O'Connor family
Russell Crowe was one of the Hollywood stars who paid tribute to the singer who was called Ireland's “absolute finest, by a long shot.”
Last year, working in Ireland, having a pint in the cold outside a Dalkey pub with some new friends, a woman with purpose strode past us. I met Sinéad. She looked in my eyes, and uttered with disarming softness, 'oh, it’s you Russell'. I had the opportunity to tell her she was a hero of mine. Peace be with your courageous heart Sinéad.”- Russell Crowe
Leo Varadkar, the Irish prime minister, said that her music "was loved around the world and her talent was unmatched".
Michael D. Higgins, the president of Ireland, hailed O'Connor's "authenticity" and her "beautiful, unique voice."
What Ireland has lost at such a relatively young age is one of our greatest and most gifted composers, songwriters and performers of recent decades, one who had a unique talent and extraordinary connection with her audience, all of whom held such love and warmth for her- Michael D. Higgins
The Irish organization that works to stop domestic violence and abuse paid respect to O'Connor.
Thank you Sinéad. For your fearless voice and courageous light. You truly challenged an Ireland, and a world, that stifled women, children and anyone who didn't conform. Your power, your anger, your pain and fragility gave strength to many survivors to speak out.- Women's Aid Ireland
The Big Bang Theory actress Mayim Bialik was also among the celebritiesto pay tribute to the Grammy Award-winning musician after the newsof her death broke overnight.
Remembering the Iconic Sinead O’Connor. Her music changed the industry and her fierce fearlessness made a tremendous impression on my teenage years. She was ahead of her time in so many ways and gone far too soon. Rest in power, Sinead O’Connor.- Mayim Bialik
I once heard Sinead sing a capella in an empty chapel in Ireland. It was under construction at the private home of our host. It was one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard in my life. We then went together to see Eminem at a festival. I loved her. Her music. Her life.- Jamie Lee Curtis
She was a victim of child abuse and a huge change agent for unfair and unjust draconian laws that she helped change in Ireland. She was a warrior. She was a rebel. She ripped up a photograph that was on her mother's wall because of the hypocrisy of the abusive life she was raised in under the banner of the church. Rest well. Rest in power. Rest in peace.- Jamie Lee Curtis
The world has lost an artist with the voice of an angel. Ireland has lost an iconic voice and one of our absolute finest, by a long shot. And I have lost a friend. Sinead's music will live on and continue to inspire! Rest In Peace, Sinead you are home with your son I am sure.- Conor McGregor
Sinéad O'Connor is an Irish singer-songwriter who gained international fame for her powerful voice, passionate performances, and socially conscious lyrics. She was born on December 8, 1966, in Dublin, Ireland.
O'Connor first rose to prominence in the late 1980s with the release of her debut album, "The Lion and the Cobra" (1987), which featured the hit single "Mandinka." However, it was her second album, "I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got" (1990), that brought her widespread acclaim and commercial success. The album's single, a cover of the Prince song "Nothing Compares 2 U," became a massive hit and earned her international recognition. The music video for the song, with O'Connor's iconic close-up shots and emotional performance, remains one of the most memorable music videos of all time.


After she was found unconscious in her London home, Irish singer Sinéad O'Connor's death is not being treated as suspicious, police say. People are saying nice things about the 56-year-old singer, whose version of the song "Nothing Compares 2 U" made her famous all over the world.
The London Inner South Coroner's Court said on Thursday that there was no medical reason for O'Connor's death. The coroner's court will decide if a hearing is needed once the results of the autopsy are known.
