These Nuns of “Pop Praise” Are Winning Hearts With Their New Album

Arthur Herlin - published on 10/26/15 - updated on 06/07/17

After their first hit, these Peruvian nuns are at it again

Following in the footsteps of The Priests and Sister Cristina is a new group of women religious-pop musicians singing praise from Peru. “The Servants” won the hearts of Europeans after the release of their first album, called Longing, a year ago.

The group returns this time with a release of their first video, “Confía has Dio” (“My faith in God”), which is meant to remind us that we shouldn’t be afraid or despair, even in times of great darkness.

For this music video, the ten sisters who make up the group have relied on volunteer work of actors and producers who are well known in Peru. For the filming they were even able to use the heliport of a clinic in the Peruvian capital of Lima.
