The audience weren’t sure what to make of 25-year-old Cristina Scucci when she first walked out on stage. Dressed in her nun’s habit and a dowby pair of black pumps, she didn’t exactly look like the typical contestant on The Voice.
That all changed when she began to sing (and groove) though. Cheered on from backstage by three of her fellow nuns, the soulful sister blasted her way through the Alicia Keys hit No One, and soon had the Italian audience on their feet.
In true The Voice style it wasn’t long before the impressed judges span round to take a look, and their shocked faces are simply priceless.
Asked why she applied to the show, sister Cristina replied: ‘I came here because I have a gift and I want to share that gift.’Can we get an amen for that? by Siam Goorwich for METRO
