Róisín Waters sang her mother Sinéad O'Connor's hit song "Nothing Compares 2 U" at Carnegie Hall in New York City last night, March 20, during a tribute concert to O'Connor and Shane MacGowan.

Waters, 28, sang "Nothing Compares 2 U" on stage during the three-hour tribute concert to the two Irish music legends who passed away just months apart from each other in 2023.

A cover of Prince's song, "Nothing Compares 2 U" was released in 1990 on Sinead O'Connor's Grammy-winning album "I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got." The song helped spur O'Connor's climb to fame as it spent weeks at number one on the Irish and UK charts.

Waters' performance garnered cheers and applause from the New York audience on Wednesday night. She appeared barefoot on stage and was backed by a live band.

Waters is the second eldest and only daughter of O'Connor's four children.

Elsewhere during the three-hour tribute concert, musicians such as Glen Hansard, Imelda May, former Pogues member Cáit O’Riordan, David Gray, Cat Power, and Resistance Revival Chorus paid tribute to Sinéad O'Connor and Shane MacGowan during "Sinéad & Shane at Carnegie Hall."

Echoing his performance at Shane MacGowan's funeral in November, Glen Hansard paired up with Cáit O’Riordan to perform "Fairytale of New York."

The tribute concert also saw Bettye LaVette sing O’Connor’s "I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got," Cat Power delivered her version of The Pogues’ "The Body Of An American," and the Resistance Revival Chorus covered O’Connor’s "Thank You For Hearing Me." 

Hansard and May joined forces to perform MacGowan and O’Connor’s duet "Haunted," while Billy Bragg put his spin on The Pogues’ "A Rainy Night In Soho."

56-year-old O'Connor was found dead in her London flat on July 26, 2023. Authorities later confirmed that she died of natural causes.

A few months later, MacGowan passed away on November 30 at the age of 65 following a long battle with illness.
