Yes, that’s right, a nun, Sister Cristina Scuccia wows the audience and of course the judges with her rendition of Alicia Keys’ “No One,” but the most shocking part is when they saw what Scuccia looked like .25-year-old Scuccia, a member of the Ursuline Sisters of the Holy Family, delivering a jaw-droopingly good performance in her black habit and silver cross, as the crowd cheered, her fellow sisters jumped up and down in delight.
The shocked and impressed judges asked her if she was really a nun, to which she replied, “Yes, I am truly, truly, a sister.” A native of Sicily, she arrived at the show accompanied by four sisters from her community as well as her parents. “I came here because I have a gift and I want to share that gift. I am here to evangelize,” she said, reports Catholic News Agency.
“If I had found you at Mass I would always be in church,” said J-Ax, an Italian rapper who is one of the judges. “You and me are like the devil and holy water.” The judges asked her what the Vatican would think of her singing, to which she replied, “I hope that Pope Francis will call me now,” according to NY Daily News.
