Sinéad O'Connor aka: Shuhada' Davitt (born Sinéad Marie Bernadette O'Connor, 8 December 1966) is an Irish singer-songwriter who rose to fame in the late 1980s with her debut album The Lion and the Cobra. As Sinéad O'Connor, she achieved worldwide success in 1990 with a new arrangement of Prince's song "Nothing Compares 2 U". Since then, while maintaining her singing career, she has occasionally encountered controversy, partly due to her statements and gestures—such as her ordination as a priest despite being a woman with a Roman Catholic background—and her strongly expressed views on organised religion, women's rights, war, and child abuse. In addition to her ten solo albums, her work includes many singles, songs for films, collaborations with many other artists, and appearances at charity fundraising concerts.

I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got (1990)
- Maybe it sounds mean
But I really don't think so
You asked for the truth
And I told you
Through their own words
They will be exposed
- The Emperor's New Clothes
- I'm walking through the desert
And I am not frightened although it's hot
I have all that I requested
And I do not want what I haven't got
- I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got
Don't Cry For Me Argentina (single) (1992)
- I have an invitation for you.
Is there a celebration?
No, I'm not inviting you to a celebration.
I'm inviting you to a war...
I'll lead you, if you have sheep, give them away
If you have a family, leave them
- Ave Maria
