Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan dead at 46

Dolores O'Riordan, singer for The Cranberries, has died at the age of 46.

Although O'Riordan will be best remembered for her musical achievements, her worldwide fans will no doubt be interested to know that she also featured as a judge in the Irish edition of reality singing show The Voice.

The Limerick, Ireland band became global stars in the 1990s starting with "Linger" off their debut album "Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?" and "Zombie" from their second release.

On Monday afternoon, Holmes did not immediately provide further details on O'Riordan's death.

Holmes says the singer's family is "devastated" by the news.

O'Riordan, who joined the Cranberries in 1989 after seeing an advertisement in a local paper, suffered from bipolar disorder.

The musician was in London for a recording session when she died suddenly.

Higgins described O'Riordan's death as a big loss to Irish music, saying her influence was "immense".

It wasn't until 1993 when the band set of on tour supporting English rock band Suede that their first album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? started to gain major traction after The Cranberries caught the eye of MTV. She was member of the group from 1990 to 2003 before rejoining in 2009. "Looking back, I think depression, whatever the cause, is one of the worst things to go through", she said.

Family and friends have requested privacy at this time. They're known for global hits such as "Zombie" and "Linger".

She is survived by three children - her son Taylor, 20, and daughters Molly, 16 and Dakota, 12, according to People.
