Sinead O’Connor’s Daughter Sings “Nothing Compares 2 U” in Tribute to Mother

On Wednesday, a host of musicians came together to honor late Irish legends Shane MacGowan and Sinead O’Connor with a tribute concert at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

Most notably, O’Connor’s daughter, Roisin Waters, paid tribute to her mother with a stirring performance of “Nothing Compares 2 U.”

The concert also saw Bettye LaVette sing “I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got,” Cat Power put her spin on “The Body of an American,” and Resistance Revival Chorus cover “Thank You for Hearing Me,” among other performances of O’Connor’s music. Additionally, Glen Hansard and Imelda May teamed up to perform MacGowan and O’Connor’s duet “Haunted.”

Among the artists who covered songs by MacGowan and his band The Pogues were Violent Femmes’ Gordon Gano (“A Pair of Brown Eyes”), Gogol Bordello’s Eugene Hütz (“The Church of Holy Spook”), Billy Bragg (“A Rainy Night in Soho,” “If I Should Fall From Grace with God”), The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn and The Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle  (“Sally MacLennane”), and Dropkick Murphys (“The Old Main Drag”).

And as he did during MacGowan’s funeral, Hansard led a rousing performance of “Fairytale of New York” with former Pogues member Cait O’Riordan to close the concert.
