Irish singer Sinead O’Connor has converted to Islam, adopting the name Shuhada’ Davitt in the process.

The singer, who is best known for smash 1990 remake of Prince’s Nothing Compares 2 U, made the announcement via Twitter yesterday.

The 51-year-old singer, who had changed her name to Magda Davitt last year, also tweeted a photo of her wearing the hijab, and also a video of her singing the Azan, apologising for getting some of the pronunciations wrong.
