"Irish and global singer Dolores O'Riordan has died suddenly in London today". Dolores won an EBBA (European Border Breakers Awards) in 2008, which recognized her as one of "10 emerging artists or groups who reached audiences outside their own countries with their first internationally released album in the past year".
Her publicist confirms the singer was visiting a london studio for a short recording session. She went into self-protection mode but with massive success she then began to embrace the possibilities of fame and became increasingly outspoken - sometimes her views on controversial social issues in Ireland saw her cast as a pretender to Sinead O'Connor. In fact, the website claimed the group sold more than 15 million albums in the US alone.

On the official Cranberries website, "medical reasons associated with a back problem" were cited as to why O'Riordan was unable to perform on the tour.
Ms. O'Riordan's unusual and immediately recognizable voice alternated between delicate and powerful rawness and, with her yodels and Irish accent, came to characterize the band's sound.
I once met Delores O'Riordan when I was 15. Our thoughts go out to her family at this awful time.

The song was written during The Cranberries' English Tour in 1993, in memory of two boys, Johnathan Ball and Tim Parry, who were killed in an IRA bombing in Warrington, England in February 1993.
"She was an inspiration to many across the world and had a truly unique voice".
Dave Davies, a founding member of 60s rock group The Kinks, expressed his sadness and surprise at O'Riordan's death. "So sorry to hear that she's passed away today", he wrote. I'd never heard somebody use their instrument in that way.
