The collective of female artists that is Irish Women In Harmony, have released their own version of Sinéad O’Connor’s Nothing Compares 2 U in honour of the late singer.
Recorded with Sinéad’s former producer John Reynolds, the new version of the hit song features the likes of Aimée, Ailbhe Reddy, Andrea Corr, Emma Langford, Erica-Cody, Fia Moon, Gemma Doherty (harp), LYRA, Melina Malone, Róisín O, SIBÉAL, SOULÉ, Una Healy and many others.
All proceeds of the new release will be going towards the Aisling Project, a charity chosen by Sinéad’s family.
The Aisling Project is an after-school intervention program in Ballymun on the Northside of Dublin, aiding children and young people in need of support, through a wide range of ever-expanding activities in a caring and secure environment.
Speaking about the tribute, RuthAnne, singer and founder of the Irish Women In Harmony collective, said: “It was so important for our collective to come back together for this very special tribute to an iconic Irish female artist like Sinéad O’Connor, who has had such a huge influence and inspired us all in our own careers.
“Sinéad paved the way for the rest of us, her legacy will live forever and we want to celebrate her, thank her and raise much-needed awareness and funds for Aisling Project.”
While Mícheál Clear, Project Leader, of the Aisling Project, said that they were “delighted” to be associated with the female collective.
Adding: “We are so grateful to the Sinéad O’Connor estate and everyone involved for their many kindnesses towards us.”
