The artist, best known for her 1990 hit version of the Prince song “Nothing Compares 2 U,” announced on Twitter that she had changed her name to Shuhada'.

She converted to Catholicism last year and changed her name to Magda Davitt, Metro reported.

“This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim,” she wrote on Twitter. “This is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey. All scripture study leads to Islam. Which makes all other scriptures redundant. I will be given (another) new name. It will be Shuhada.”

Irish Imam Shaykh Dr Umar al-Qadri posted a video on Twitter of the singer giving the Islamic declaration of faith.
