  1. Italy’s New Pop Star is a … Nun

    The country that gave us Luciano Pavarotti is hailing a heavenly new musical sensation, and she’s straight out of a convent. Sister Christina Scuccia seems to be heading for stardom after the video of her audition on the TV show The Voice of Italy went viral with 19 million views in just four days. The 25 year old, who took her vows in 2010, mesmerized judges by performing Alicia Keys’ song “No One” while wearing her black habit and cross. Even the Vatican’s minister of culture, Gianfranco Ravasi, is declaring his admiration for the nun who sings like an angel.
