Estate of Sinead O’Connor Criticizes Trump for Using Singer’s Hit Single at Rallies




Sinead O'Connor's estate slams Trump for using singer's best-selling single at rallies

The late Irish singer-songwriter Sinead O’Connor’s estate has criticized Donald Trump for using her song ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ at his campaign rallies. The estate demanded Trump to stop playing the song immediately. O’Connor, who passed away in 2023, was known for her strong moral code and criticism of the Roman Catholic Church.

In a statement to ‘Variety’, O’Connor’s estate and label Chrysalis Records expressed outrage at Trump’s use of her iconic performance. The estate stated that O’Connor would have been disgusted and insulted by the misrepresentation of her work by someone she referred to as a ‘biblical devil’. They demanded Trump and his associates to stop using her music.

This incident adds O’Connor to the list of musicians who have objected to Trump using their music at rallies. Artists like Johnny Marr, Adele, the Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, and many others have also refused Trump’s use of their songs. The statement from O’Connor’s estate highlights the ongoing trend of artists standing up against the unauthorized use of their music for political purposes.
