Take a Bow! Sister Cristina Debuts in “Sister Act”

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 01/04/16

The singing sensation has taken her gig to a new stage:

The popular Italian nun, Sister Cristina Scuccia is now going into acting. Last year, this “Singing Nun” performed and won ‘The Voice of Italy” award on June 5th, in Milan, Italy, which is also the city where her convent is. Scuccia will be starring in a musical stage production of the 1992 hit movie Sister Act; It will be opening in Rome on December 10th at the Brancaccio Theater. Last year, 27-year-old Sister Christina, also known as “Suor Christina”, blew away the judges and the audiences with her exceptional vocal performances on Italy’s version of The Voice. She performed renditions of pop/Top 40 classic hits by artists like Bon Jovi and Alicia Keys and ended up signing a record deal with the Universal recording company.

Just before New Year’s, a video preview was released, below:
