O’Connor, who infamously tore a photo of Pope John Paul II in half in 1992, protesting of the Catholic Church’s cover up of child abuse, created a backlash, when she did so, on an episode of Saturday Night Live. She went on to find worldwide fame in 1990 with her cover of Prince’s song, “Nothing Compares 2 U,” which was named the number one world single that year by the Billboard Music Awards.

She was presented with the inaugural award for Classic Irish Album at the RTÉ Choice Music Awards earlier this year. Reportedly, the singer released ten studio albums over her career.

O’Connor had announced In 2018, that she had converted to Islam and changed her name to Shuhada. She is survived by her three children, Jake, Roisin, and Yeshua. Her son, Shane, died last year at the age of 17, leading to a medical episode for her. No cause of death has been given.

According to an earlier report by Breitbart News-

“You’ve got to take care of us. We’re not like everybody. If you have a family member that suffers from mental illness, care for them, tenderness, love, care for them. Visit them in the hospital, don’t dump them in the hospital and bugger off.”

Mental health is the reality of some in this population who are often not taken seriously. Seeking help for what is not understood is a far better plan, than allowing a real disease of brain chemistry to rob any individual of their sanity or the joy of seeing life as it really is. Seek help.

“Bipolar robs you of that which is you. It can take from you the very core of your being and replace it with something that is completely opposite of who and what you truly are. Because my bipolar went untreated for so long, I spent many years looking in the mirror and seeing a person I did not recognize or understand. Not only did bipolar rob me of my sanity, but it robbed me of my ability to see beyond the space it dictated me to look. I no longer could tell reality from fantasy, and I walked in a world no longer my own.”
