Young Italian nun astonishes judges of “The Voice”…

… with her performance of Alicia Keys’ hit song, “No One”:

The New York Daily News reports:

The 25-year-old [Sister Cristina, from Sicily] then told the quartet: “I have a gift and I’m giving it to you.”

Fellow Sisters bounce up and down backstage as the judges decide they like what they hear and push their buttons – only to be stunned when seeing the singer.

“If I had found you at Mass I would always be in church,” joked one of the panel, an Italian rapper known as J-Ax, who then added: “You and me are like the devil and holy water.”

Sister Cristina joined J-Ax’s team on the program, saying, “I hope that Pope Francis will call me now.”
