Young Nun Wows Judges on Italy's 'The Voice'

Last edited 20th March 2014

Sr. Cristina Scuccia is a 25 year old member of the Ursuline Sisters of the Holy Family who has appeared on "The Voice of Italy," a reality show akin to "American Idol" or "Britain’s Got Talent." Sr. Cristina surprised the four judges on The Voice of Italy March 19 with both her talent and her habit.

The judges on the show begin with their backs turned to the performer, and turn around only if they like what they hear. As the judges turned to face Sr. Cristina, their astonishment was visible at seeing a young nun singing Alicia Keys’ “No One.” After her performance, one of the judges asked Sr. Cristina if she is really a nun, and why she chose to compete on the show.

“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.”

Wonderful!!! - really - this segment of the show was stunning because it reveals something amazing about people: the ability to be honest when the situation demands it irrespective of how 'used to' façades some people in the entertainment industry have become. When emotional honesty is bared, then pretentiousness loses its' grip and people can just be real. This segment made me laugh with the joy and hilarity of the moment while at the same time something pretty profound was evident for all to see, which only added to the sense of purpose this situation held for those watching and immersed in it. I have to admire Suor Cristina for doing this act cos this has done something brilliant!! Cheers too for all those whom she really touched deeply through her performance - you have indeed been truly blessed! : )))))

Glory to God, how beautiful this Sister Cristina is, and how delightful is her glowing face. And how pitiful are the judges with their strange tattoos and hair styles when juxtaposed with the lovely Sister.

Lovely! Very touching, evangelization has no boundaries, missionaries need to know where, when, and how to approach people, this is the delightful way sister Cristina has chosen, wow!!!!!
