Suor Cristina Scuccia canta "Livin' on a Prayer"

Let's hear it for singing sisters! Gregorian chant this is not... But I'm enjoying the idea just as much as the crowd who voted her the winner of Italy's 'The Voice' this year.

"Holy moly, a nun just won Italy's 'The Voice'"

Here's an article about it:
A short excerpt:
After winning, the nun kept her modest attitude up and asked the audience to join her in a recitation of the Lord’s Prayer. Thanking her fellow sisters who had come along to all of the previous rounds, she lifted the trophy into the air and thanked God. 

Leading the audience in prayer is not the usual stuff of those shows.  Go, Sister!

Wonder if she'll accept that record deal... Wonder what her community thinks of all this! My guess is that they're delighted and perplexed at the same time. I doubt their rule of life addresses "reality" television! God is full of surprises, and this is certainly one of them.
