Rockers Mourn Iconic Singer Sinead O’Connor, Who Has Died at 56
O'Connor, an iconic singer perhaps most visible in the '90s, was well known for her angelic voice and shaved head. Her cover of Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U" made her a household name.
But infamously, O'Connor gained what might have been her biggest headlines in 1992 when she destroyed a photo of Pope John Paul II during a Saturday Night Live performance to shed light on abuse allegations in the Catholic Church.
Below, see rockers' words for O'Connor.
Among them, The Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan said the late singer was "talented in ways I'm not sure she completely understood. But Sinead stands alone as a figure from our generation who was always true to the piercing voice within and without."
O'Connor's cause of death was not initially reported. The singer's son Shane Lunny died at 17 in 2022. O'Connor is survived by three other children, Jake Reynolds, Roisin Waters and Yeshua Bonadio.
