Irish singer Sinead O’Connor has announced her conversion to Islam, changing her name to Shuhada’ Davitt.
“This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim,” she wrote on Twitter on October 19. “This is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey. All scripture study leads to Islam. Which makes all other scriptures redundant.”
The singer added: “I will be given (another) new name. It will be Shuhada’.”
She spells her new name, which means “martyrs” in Arabic, with an apostrophe at the end.
