Tribute- “Nothing compares to u” by Davina Dugnas
Sinéad O'Connor saw music as the therapy to escape a turbulent childhood.
At 16 her father moved her to a boarding school in Waterford where a teacher recognised her talent and helped her produce a demo tape featuring two of her own compositions.
A meeting with the producer and composer Colm Farrelly saw them come together with other musicians to form the band Ton Ton Macoute.
They made an immediate impact and, when they relocated to Dublin, O'Connor dropped out of school to go with them.
Her rendition of the Prince song “Nothing Compares 2 U” shot to No. 1 in 1990, buoyed by the iconic music video which featured LPO’Connor, with close-cropped hair and a dark turtleneck.
The song was nominated for multiple Grammys and scored O’Connor wins for both MTV video of the year and best video by a female artist. Other songs on the album that reaped praise for the singer included the pointed and politically charged anthem “Black Boys on Mopeds.”
She was a precocious talent who used music as a means of dealing with the demons inside her. A contradictory figure in many ways, she always refused to toe the establishment line, something that saw her achieve less success than she deserved.
The singer though was unapologetic and unrepentant for those life choices. "I always say, if you live with the devil, you find out there's a god."
