Peru’s rocking nuns who have atheists turning their heads now caught the attention of the BBC

Siervas are interviewed by BBC News about their music and their mission

Peru’s rocking nun group “Siervas” has already gained worldwide fame. The video of the group in full habit rocking on a helipad high above the city went viral. Even atheists recognized their talent. They were asked to play for Pope Francis during his visit to Juarez.

The young missionary sisters witness to the love of God through their music. It was a natural path for them to take, the perfect combination of their lifelong love of music and their radiant joy for the Lord.

And now the young missionaries have caught the eye of those across the pond: They were interviewed by the BBC, where they spoke about the formation of the group, their mission, and their concert for the pope.
