Hace unas horas falleció Dolores O’Riordan, la cantante de The Cranberries, a sus 46 años y de manera súbita. El repentino deceso causó conmoción en sus seguidores y en la industria musical: varios artistas y personalidades públicas compartieron mensajes homenajeando a la cantante irlandesa.
En diálogo con Rolling Stone, el productor Stephen Street dijo: «Todos nos beneficiamos con conocerla y con tenerla presente. Que descanse en paz mi pájaro cantor irlandés».
El presidente de Irlanda, Michael Higgins, publicó un comunicado en el que se lee: «Dolores O’Riordan y The Cranberries han sido una inmensa influencia en el rock y pop en Irlanda e internacionalmente. Recuerdo con cariño cuando Jim Kemmy, político de Limerick, me presentó a Dolores y a The Cranberries, y el orgullo que significaba para él su éxito. Para todos aquellos que apoyan la música irlandesa, músicos irlandeses y las artes performáticas, su muerte será una gran pérdida».

Devastated for fans and her family- Dolores O’Riorden had such an exquisite voice, so distinctive and defining of an era. She would have continued to be a rare musical treasure late into a long life #gonetoosoon https://t.co/2QH2cPgRf6

One of my fondest memories of the last few years was playing a BC show on the rooftop of a hotel in Cabo and then crashing the house bands set with “Zombie” while Payton Manning was hanging in the audience (lol) RIP Dolores, your voice always got me good ? pic.twitter.com/WoeGhM8zCt

My first time hearing Dolores O'Riordan's voice was unforgettable. It threw into question what a voice could sound like in that context of Rock. I'd never heard somebody use their instrument in that way. Shocked and saddened to hear of her passing, thoughts are with her family.

I once met Delores O’Riordan when I was 15. She was kind and lovely, I got her autograph on my train ticket and it made my day. She had the most amazing voice and presence. So sorry to hear that she’s passed away today x

WHAT. dolores o’riordan was an important & (as usual in this industry) under-appreciated poet-power-voice, influencing many…my song “half jack” from the @DresdenDolls 1st record was written directly after hearing “zombie”. may her voice carry on & on… https://t.co/ZuXMPllDPh

Shocked and heartbroken over Dolores O’Riordan’s death. The Cranberries were pinnacle in showing me that it was possible to fully embrace masculine and feminine energy in one cohesive sound. She was a true pioneer ?
