O’Connor, who currently uses the name Shuhada Sadaqat, signs with ICM for North American representation in all areas. The Irish singer-songwriter will be represented by a team of agents led by partner/co-head of worldwide concerts Rob Prinz, Mike Hayes and Brandon Zmigrocki. She is managed by brothers Kenneth Papenfus and Carl Papenfus of 67 Management.
Best known for 1990’s “Nothing Compares 2 U,” O’Connor recently converted to Islam and is working on her 11th studio album, “No Mud No Lotus.” She is expected to tour behind it as well.
“We are truly excited and honored to be working with such a talented, unique and groundbreaking artist,” said Prinz. “We cannot wait to see her performing in North America again.”
