The Singing Nun Knocks 'Em Dead At Italy's 'Voice'

Sister Cristina Scuccia received a standing ovation appearing on Italy’s The Voice after performing Alicia Keys’s “No one.”

Anyone who's ever been taught by nuns is never surprised by what they have up their sleeve. Sister Cristina Scuccia received a standing ovation appearing on Italy’s The Voice after performing Alicia Keys’s “No one”:

The nun, who has an easy smile and is a member of the Ursuline Sisters of the Holy Family, said: “I came here because I have a gift, and I want to share that gift.” One of the judges, Italian rapper J-Ax, said he was “moved to tears.”

She said she had been inspired to go on the show by Pope Francis, who “told us to come out” of our convents and spread the word of God.

Asked by judge Raffaella Carra what the Vatican thinks about her going on a talent show, she said: “I’m waiting for a call from the Pope!”
