Video: Singing nun stuns The Voice judges - Sister Cristina has voice of an angel

Move over Julie Andrews - there's a new nun in town with Sister Cristina Scuccia making headlines around the world following her appearance on The Voice of Italy”.

A viral video shows each judge reacting with surprise as they see Sister Scuccia for the first time. She gives a memorable rendition of Alicia Keys’ hit No One.

The 25-year-old nun told Catholic News Agency that she appeared on the show because,"I have a gift and I want to share that gift. I am here to evangelize.”

The first judge to turn around was tattooed Italian rapper J-Ax.

His jaw hit the ground when he saw where the heavenly voice had come from.

He later joked: ‘If I'd had a nun like you at Sunday school I'd be pope now.’

If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
