It is rare nowadays to see this kind of extended conversation with a renowned musician on religious topics. Sinead O’Connor seems to be one of the few prominent musicians integrating a searching theological sensibility with popular music.

Here she is covering Curtis Mayfield’s “Jesus” in New York City in July:

And here is another version one year earlier in NYC. (Thanks I.F. for the tip.)
