Sinéad O'Connor delivers a breathtaking performance
Global superstar Sinéad O’Connor delivered an absolutely breathtaking performance of her 90s hit Nothing Compares 2 U live on Good Morning Britain.
After a five year break from music, the 52-year-old is kicking off a global tour in December in London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
But before her tour commences, the incredible singer-songwriter, who converted to Isalm last year, joined us with the awarding-winning composer Julian Joseph to deliver a spine-tingling performance.
Her wonderful voice left viewers amazed, with many describing it as "stunning", "thrilling", "beautiful" and "incredible".
During the singer's interview, she spoke about being young and not being ready for the amount of success she achieved. She said: “I think I was very young, I wasn’t ready for the type of ‘success’ that happened. I wasn’t really setting out to be a pop star I didn’t really fit the mould, I was more of a punk actually. I didn’t set out to be a pop star. I like that people are focussing more on music, including me.”
Having performed her beloved hit Nothing Compares 2 U live in the studio, she said of the famous track: “I love it. I always think of my mother when I sing it. My mother died when I was very young, in a car crash when I was 18. I always get to spend time with my mother when I sing that song. So I close my eyes and think of my mother.”
Asked what her mother would think of her career, she said: “I’d say she probably does make something of it, in so far as I believe there’s life after death. I’d say she’s very proud. Herself and my father were amateur singers… She had a very broad musical taste, it was really down to her and my father that I became a singer.”
