Sinéad O’Connor, now known as Shuhada Sadaqat, made an ultra rare appearance on Ireland’s The Late Late Show Friday night.
Dressed in a traditional Muslim hijab, the iconic singer belted out mesmerizing renditions of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” and The Pogues’ “Rainy Night in Soho.”
With a forthcoming tour in Ireland this October, the 52 year old performer has no U.S. planned, yet.
“I am enjoying the feeling of it; it’s nice because I actually thought nobody would be interested anymore,” O’Connor said during the interview portion of the broadcast.” I really thought nobody was going to buy any tickets to the shows. I really thought I wouldn’t even get any shows, that nobody would hire me to do shows after being out so long.”
