Who says that Sister Cristina should be confined in the convent?
This is confirmed by a nun, who has recently lined up in “The Voice of Italy (Season 2)” just to sing her “divine” rendition of Alicia Keys’ “No One.” Who would have thought that a nun like her will performed in front of the crowd with her black habit and a necklace bearing a cross as pendant? Yet amidst being surprised, the audience gave her a roaring round of applause.
And who is this nun? Well, she is no other than Sister Christina Scuccia, 25 years of age. Although she came from Sicily, she is currently living in Milan. She is also a full-pledged member of the Ursuline Sisters of the Holy Family.
According to Sister Christina, when she was a child, she had a dream of becoming a well-known singer. It appeared, however, that the call of God for her service outweighed her childhood dream. Yet while she is now a nun, she admits that she still loves to sing.
After uttering just some lyrics of her audition piece, “The Voice of Italy” judges started to press their buttons and as their chair turned, they were astonished when they found out that the beautiful voice is owned by a nun.
When she was asked why she decided to join the contest, Sister Christina said that she has a given voice to be shared with the world. Another judge also asked whether Pope Francis knows her audition, she jested that she has been waiting for His call. Moreover, she claimed that Pope’s call of spreading the word has motivated her to go out of the convent and evangelize through her serene voice.
