Nun Stuns on Italian 'Voice'

An Italian nun has become a national star after she wowed judges on Italy’s version of "The Voice" this week.

25 year-old Sister Cristina Scuccia is a performer and an Ursuline Sister of the Holy Family.

A fact the judges were surprised to learn, as they turned around to see who was singing Alicia Key’s “No One” during a ‘blind’ audition.

As the judges looked to see who was performing, you can see their shock to discover a nun belting out the tune.

During her performance the camera pans to her fellow sisters cheering her on.

According to the Catholic News Agency, Sister Cristina 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 has moved on to the next round on the program.
