Sharing a picture of herself wearing a hijab, the Irish rockstar and mother-of-four who had struggled with mental health problems, broke the news on Twitter.

“This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim,” she wrote. “This is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey. All scripture leads to Islam. Which makes all other scriptures redundant.

“I will be given (another) new name,” she added. “It will be Shuhada’.”

She later posted a video of her singing the Islamic call to prayer known as the Adhan in which some people commented saying it’s forbidden in Islam for a woman to say the Adhan.

“Here is my 1st attempt at singing the Azan,” she wrote. “I got some pronouncition wrong because emotions took me from my page… but there’ll be hundreds of others onstage to come…”

In a follow-up tweet, she added: “Sorry re all the mistakes in my Azan…. 1st attempt. When I’ve practiced it 30 times i’m Gonna make the world stop turning.”
