The 46-year-old singer died suddenly on Monday during a trip to London for a short recording session.

Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan, one of the biggest voices of the 1990s alternative music movement, died suddenly early Monday morning, prompting celebrities from across Hollywood and the music world took to express their shock and sadness on social media.

The Cranberries, known for hits hits as "Zombie" and "Linger," posted a picture of O'Riordan on their Instagram and Twitter pages, with the very limited information available about her passing. The singer died suddenly in London during a trip there for a short recording session. She was 46 years old.

"Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time," the post concluded.

From 2003-2009, The Cranberries went on hiatus, during which time O'Riordan released two solo albums. The reunited band dropped their seventh studio album, "Something Else," in April 2017. In May, O'Riordan revealed that she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

Fans from all walks of life were devastated to wake up Monday morning and hear of her passing.

Late-night host James Corden tweeted, "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."

Meanwhile, fellow rock star Hozier took to Twitter to pay tribute with this message of admiration: "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."
