Before became a Muslim, last year she changed her name to Magda Davitt after she took up the Catholic faith. She had previously been ordained a priest by the Irish Orthodox and Apostolic Church back in the 1990s, but she closed the door on Christianity for good. 

The 51-year-old woman also changed her profile picture to ‘Wear A Hijab: JUST DO IT,’ followed by a Nike tagline.

Her decision became a Muslim comes after the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey. 

In a message to her followers on Twitter, she wrote, "This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim. All scripture study leads me to Islam. I will be given (another) new name. It will be Shuhada."

In a follow up tweet, she posted a video of herself singing the Adhan, the Islamic call to prayer. 

In a separate tweet she added, "Sorry re all the mistakes in my Azan…1st attempt. When I’ve practised it 30 times I’m Gonna make the world stop turning."

The singer revealed that she received her first hijab as a gift from her friend, Elaine. 

Earlier this week the singer told Daily Mail that she will be collaborating with Ronnie Wood, from Rolling Stones, as well as actor Cillian Murphy, Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason and singer Imelda May.
