An unexpected contestant on the 2014 season of "The Voice of Italy" gives the judges a surprise of Biblical proportions.


The judges couldn't wait to find out who the songstress belting out Alicia Keys' "No One" behind them was, but none of them could have anticipated seeing Sister Cristina Scuccia rocking out. According to the YouTube video description, the 25-year-old nun had always dreamed of becoming a singer, so her Mother Superiors convinced her to audition.

Scuccia is Sicilian and resides in Milan as an Orsolina nun of the Holy Family. After being unanimously accepted to the next round, she eventually won the entire competition. Time reports that in Dec. 2014, Scuccia met Pope Francis and gave him a copy of her debut album.
