Farewell to Sinéad O'Connor, troubled Irish singer-songwriter

The Irish singer-songwriter Sinead O'Connor passed away at the age of 56 after a very long period during which she struggled with depression, severe health and existential problems.

Born on 8 December 1966 in Dublin, the singer-songwriter owes her fame to both her music and her nonconformity. Success, for her, came fairly quickly, in 1987 thanks to the self-produced album 'The Lion and the Cobra'.

In 2018, she converted to Islam. The singer-songwriter is also known for having had a very troubled life in which she also had to deal with the death of her 17-year-old son just last year.
