Sinead O’Connor’s Psalms

Theology, the latest album by Sinead O’Connor, is coming next month.

Her life has certainly been interesting to watch from a distance, but I gotta say, there aren’t many singers whose gifts move me the way O’Connor’s voice does. Whatever strange turns she might take, whatever claims she may make about herself in the next wave of interviews, I’ll always be there to hear her sing, and be grateful to the Creator who fashioned that voice.

In fact, I’m going to listen to “Fire on Babylon” right now, just for the thrill of it.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
