Anne Curtis shared her favorite The Cranberries lyrics on Instagram Stories and ended her tribute with a heartwarming message.
Dolores is considered “a voice of the generation” in the ’90s with hit songs like “Linger” and “Zombie.” Last year, The Cranberries released an acoustic album titled Something Else and was touring North America and Europe.
