LONDON – Irish singer Sinead O'Connor announced that she converted to Islam and said she changed her name to Shuhada 'Davitt.

The 51-year-old girl has been posting selfies of herself using hijabs on Twitter in a Account registered under its Islamic name in the last days, as well as a video in which he sang the Azan, or a call to prayer.

She tweeted on October 19: "This is to announce that I am proud of having become a Muslim. This is the natural conclusion of the journey of any intelligent theologian. Every study of the Scriptures leads to Islam. What makes all the other scriptures redundant. "

The singer broke a photo of Pope John Paul II during an appearance on Saturday Night Live in 1992 as a protest against the Catholic Church.

In recent years he has spoken openly about his mental health problems.
