Two million pilgrims enjoyed the voice of Noa, whose song greeted Pope Francis as he arrived at the Campus Misericordiae before the final Mass of World Youth Day.

Noa, an Israeli singer whose full name is Achinoam Nini, sang in English and in Hebrew, words that match very well with Jorge Mario Bergoglio: “Smile, no matter what they tell you. Don’t listen to a word they say. Cause life is beautiful that way…”.
