Not everyone can be a great artist but a great artist can be anyone, even 25-year-old nun, Sister Cristina Scuccia, the new winner of 2014 edition of The Voice Italy.

In March 2014, during the blind auditions, Sister Cristina dazzled the jury with her voice. It took them few seconds to turn and discover that behind this pure voice is a nun.

Sister Cristina got the chance to share the stage with Kylie Minogue and Ricky Martin. Performing from Bon Jovi and Alicia Keys’ repertoire and dancing in her nun black habit and crucifix around her neck, the Sister caught the audience’s attention and support. With 62.3% of the voices, she was declared a winner of a contract with Universal Studios. But the young talented nun, who reminded many of us of Sister Act, isn’t looking to pursue a singing career. She had a gift and wanted to share it with the audience.
Sister Cristina took bravely the criticism of many conservative spectators. She was blessed by more people cheering and voting for her.

She was also blessed by her coach. J-Ax and Sister Cristina’s relationship was a beautiful message about how the world should embrace the differences: I want to live in an Italy like this: where I — an atheist rapper, can showcase, with all due respect, a nun being embraced by an Italian with Mauritian roots. I want to live in this kind of Italy”, said the coach.

We, too, want to live in this kind of world…
