Italian nun breaks Psy's record with her voice
Sister Christina Scuccia has owned the internet with her ‘heavenly’ voice.
The last time a nun sang something other than a hymn in a church, they made a whole musical about it and called it ‘The Sound of Music’. But maybe it’s time for Maria to take a backseat, because Sister Christina Scuccia has owned the internet with her ‘heavenly’ voice.
The Sicilian nun left the audience speechless with her rendition of Alicia Keys’ ‘No One’ in Italy’s edition of ‘The Voice’. But that is really not it.
Sister Christina has become an internet rage, with over 32 million hits on the Youtube video, nine days after it was first posted. She broke singer Psy’s record, where his ‘Gangnam Style’ video had garnered 10 million views in 18 days. Gangnam Style is still the most watched video, ever.
Maybe Sister Christina will break that record, too?
If her tweet is to be believed, Keys seemed floored with the performance as well. Here’s what she said:
Now, THAT'S what beautiful, pure energy looks like! Sing it, sister Christina! 😉 https://t.co/yGJnu56dqM

The 25-year-old nun also trended on Twitter with the hashtag #SuorChristina. One can safely say she had Twitter by storm.

Now to hope that the Pope does call her, like she hopes!
