It’s not unusual for a mid- or late-career white pop singer to declare an interest in African-American gospel music, especially from the 1950s, considered its late golden age. Gospel contains forces such singers might desire access to: virtuosity, resistance, belief, magic. But the picture feels different when the pop singer is, say, a 46-year-old Irish female priest — ordained in 1999 by an independent Catholic group not recognized by the church — with serious interests in Rastafari and Hinduism and serious problems with organized religion.

Sinead O’Connor wore a priest’s collar, camouflage pants and bare feet in her first major experiment in this music, her “Gospel Sessions” concerts on Friday and Saturday night at Alice Tully Hall, part of the Lincoln Center Festival. The shows were facilitated by the producer Chris Goldsmith, but you could tell that Ms. O’Connor’s gears were turning. Here was a project she desired to make thoroughly her own, a need carried out with specificity. A few parts of Friday’s concert came off beautifully, and a few more felt respectfully undercooked. But Ms. O’Connor remained careful and joyful, making adjustments as she went. – [NY Times]

Sinead O’Connor just played two nights at Alice Tully Hall (July 26 & 27) as part of the Lincoln Center Festival which wrapped up over the weekend. The Irish singer just announced she’ll be back this fall for a North American tour that includes a three-night stint in NYC at City Winery from November 8 – 10. Tickets are currently on “VinoFile” presale and will go on sale to the general public on Wednesday (7/31).
