Wow! This nun rocks!

Remember the nuns we had in grammar school? I’m sure for most of us they were not like this one.  She is Sister Cristina Scuccia, 25, and a member of the Ursuline Sisters of the Holy Family in Italy. Here she is appearing on “The voice of Italy” the Italian version of “American Idol.”  You don’t have to understand Italian to know what is going on.

During the program the judges have their backs turned to the performer then turn around when they like what they hear. You can see the visible astonishment on their faces as they saw that the performer was a young nun. The way the program runs, after the judges approve the performer, the performer then chooses one of the judges’ teams to be on for the rest of the contest.  Sr. Cristina chose J-Ax’s team because he was the first judge to turn around.
The largest ovation from the audience came when one of the judges, singer Raffaella Carra, asked Sr. Cristina if she was a real nun and why she was doing this.

 “Yes, I am truly, truly a sister,” she replied. “I came here because I have a gift and I want to share that gift. I am here to evangelize.”
Momma mia, indeed!
