This nun may not fly but she can definitely sing! A nun dressed in full robes sang Alicia Key’s song ‘No One’ on ‘The Voice’ Italy, and the Italian crowd as well as her sisters off stage went crazy.
Sister Cristina, 25, from Sicily and the Ursuline Sisters of the Holy Family order, was performing on the Italian version of The Voice during an open audition on March 19. The judges, of course, all started with their backs turned towards Sister Cristina, but when they turned around after having heard that golden voice their shock and awe was written all over their face.
Italian Singing Nun Shocks Judges On ‘The Voice’ Italy
Not quite sure if you can get the holy spirit by singing Alicia Keys but whatever she got — she let it all flow out in one of the most energetic performances we’ve ever seen any member of the clergy give.
Move over Maria von Trapp because this nun’s bringing the new sound of music!
Things got even better when the camera pans over and you see a gang of nuns, not with their heads down and hands clasped together in prayer, but cheering wildly for their fellow sister who is killing it on stage!
“How did you end up on The Voice?” judge Raffella Carra asked her immediately after her performance.
“I have a gift and I’m giving it to you,” Sister Christina said.
Would you expect any other answer from a nun?
“If I had found you at mass I would always be in church,” joked judge and Italian rapper J-Ax. “You and me are like the devil and holy water.”
Sister Christina ultimately picked the Italian rap star to be her coach and you can see the excitement on his face when she chooses him. We guess he just feels so blessed to have the chance.

When asked what the Vatican would think of her performance on national television the nun replied, “I hope that Pope Francis will call me now.”
The video has more than 2 million views on YouTube and the number just keeps getting bigger.
