Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

With 377,726 views on Saturday, 8 January 2022 our article of the day is Sinéad O'Connor.

Shuhada Sadaqat (born Sinéad Marie Bernadette O'Connor on 8 December 1966) is an Irish singer-songwriter. Her debut album, The Lion and the Cobra, released in 1987, charted internationally and her single "Nothing Compares 2 U", released in 1990, was named the number one world single by the Billboard Music Awards. Since then, while maintaining her singing career, she has occasionally encountered controversy, partly due to her statements and gestures. These include her ordination as a priest, despite being a woman with a Roman Catholic background, and strongly expressing 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.

In 2017, O'Connor changed her name to Magda Davitt. After converting to Islam in 2018, she changed it to Shuhada' Sadaqat (Arabic: شهداء صدقات). However, she continues to record and perform under her birth name.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:56 UTC on Sunday, 9 January 2022.
