Twenty-five-year-old singing nun from Sicily, Sister Cristina Scuccia, surprises the judges of Italy's version of Alicia Keys' hit song 'No One'.
The looks on the judges' faces and their reactions say it all!
According to the National Catholic Register she told the judges "I came here because I have a gift and I want to share that gift. I am here to evangelize."
Sister Cristina surprised the four judges on The Voice of Italy March 19 with both her talent and her habit.Here's Alicia Keys singing 'No One':
The judges on the show begin with their backs turned to the performer, and turn around only if they like what they hear.
As the judges turned to face Sister Cristina, their astonishment was visible at seeing a young nun singing Alicia Keys' "No One."
A native of Sicily, Sister Cristina arrived at the show accompanied by four sisters from her community, as well as her parents.
The four judges of the popular TV program are the Italian singers Raffaella Carra, J-Ax, Noemi, and Piero Pelu.
After her performance, Carra asked Sister Cristina if she is really a nun, and why she chose to compete on the show.
"Yes, I am truly, truly a sister," she replied.
My vote's on Sister Cristina's version ... and Sister Cristina singing it. It's got more 'soul'.
