Just days before her untimely death, Sinéad O’Connor, the gifted Irish singer-songwriter, paid a poignant tribute to her late son, Shane, on July 17. The tweet featured a link to the song “Great Tibetan Compassion Mantra” on Spotify, accompanied by a message addressed to “all mothers of suicided children.” Tragically, last year, O’Connor lost her 17-year-old son to suicide after he went missing from a suicide watch at an Irish hospital.

News of O’Connor’s passing was shared by her family on Wednesday, expressing their deep sorrow and requesting privacy during this difficult time. However, the cause of her death has not been disclosed.

Throughout her Twitter account, O’Connor posted several emotional tributes to her late son, providing glimpses into her grief. In one heartbreaking message also posted on July 17, she responded to a tweet asking users to convey their life status using emojis. O’Connor’s response was a series of crying emojis along with a heartrending caption about losing her son to suicide in 2022. She described living like an “undead night

creature” since his passing and expressed the profound bond they shared, referring to him as the love of her life and the “lamp of her soul.”

O’Connor’s references to the Buddhist concept of “bardo” in her tweets indicate her contemplation of life, death, and rebirth during this period of loss.

In July 2022, after posting distressing messages implying her intention to “follow” her son, O’Connor was hospitalized. Subsequently, her management team announced that all her scheduled gigs would be canceled, and she would not perform for the rest of the year.

O’Connor’s musical journey began in 1987 with her debut album, “The Lion and the Cobra,” which catapulted her to fame at the age of 20. She continued to make a lasting impact, releasing 10 studio albums during her illustrious career. However, it was her rendition of “Nothing Compares 2 U,” originally written by Prince, that made her a household name.

Beyond her musical achievements, O’Connor was known for her unapologetic activism and willingness to challenge authority. In 1992, during a controversial “Saturday Night Live” appearance, she tore up a photo of Pope John Paul II onstage to protest sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.

In 2018, she made a profound spiritual transformation, changing her name to Shuhada’ Sadaqat after converting to Islam.
