The singer says she is "proud to have become a Muslim."

Irish singer Sinéad O & # 39; Connor announced that she converted to Islam.

The artist, best known for her successful 1990 version of the song Nothing Compares 2 U, said she had changed her name to Shuhada & # 39;

In a message on Twitter, he thanked the other Muslims for their support.

She has said that her decision was "the natural conclusion of any journey of intelligent theologian" and he uploaded a video of her singing the adhan, or Islamic call to prayer.

On Thursday, Irish Imam Shaykh, Dr. Umar al-Qadri, posted a video of the singer saying the declaration of Islamic faith.

It is not the first time that the singer, who legally changed her name to Magda Davitt last year, has spoken publicly about religion.

In 1992, it provoked a controversy after breaking a photograph of the Pope live on American television.

Seven years later, she was ordained by a dissident church in Lourdes. The Catholic Church, which does not allow women to become priests, did not recognize the ceremony.
