Nun’s performance on Italian version of The Voice has become viral and been viewed more than 20 million times on YouTube in a few days. Read this article and talk about it in our Sunday Group Lesson!

Sister Cristina Scuccia, a 25-year-old Sicilian who appeared, habit-clad, on the Italian version of TV show The Voice on Wednesday, has become an instant star, with her audition racking up more than 3 million views on YouTube.
