[ March 2001]
Q. Having worked
with Kathy Burke, is there anyone you would like to duet with?
an interview for BBC's Top Of The Pops, Irish singer David
Gray named Sinéad as his dream duet partner:
really. There are lots of people Iíd like to work with but itís not something
Iíve given a lot of thought to. What normally
happens with these things is that they come out of the blue. You havenít
thought about it and then you think "yeah ". There
are some people with great voices. Sinéad
OíConnor is a really obvious one and Iím
sure there are loads more but Iím rather
bad at remembering this sort of thing. Nina Simone or Tom Waits or someone
like that would be brilliant.

A fanatic heart"
