Singing nun Sister Cristina wins television talent show

Singing nun Sister Cristina Scuccia has won “The Voice of Italy 2014” with 62.3 percent of the vote earning her a recording contract with Universal, Variety reported.

Upon the announcement of her victory, the nun punched the air, thanked God for her victory, and recited the “Our Father” on stage.

The 25-year-old nun from Milan was considered by many to be the front-runner going into Thursday night’s finale of the reality TV singing competition.

She wins a recording contract with Universal.

The nun first made headlines in March with her soulful performance of Alicia Keys’ “No One” on the show. The YouTube video of her performance went viral, garnering over 50 million views, and a supportive tweet from Keys herself.

Sister Cristina’s winning streak on The Voice was fueled by her performances alongside unlikely singing partners, including Ricky Martin and Kylie Minogue. Last month, Sister Cristina performed a high-energy version of “What a Feeling,” complete with her fellow sisters dancing in the studio audience.

Sister Cristina — who was coached by Italian rapper J-Ax — has said she was inspired to audition for The Voice by the words of Pope Francis to “get out onto the streets.”

“I have a gift and I am giving it to you,” Sister Cristina told the judges in March during her blind audition.
