Video: Italian Nun Sr. Christina Sings “No One”!

Published on Mar 19, 2014 – Suor Christina canta “No one” di Alicia Keys. Si girano tutti e 4 i Coach, in ordine: J-Ax, Noemi, Piero Pelù e Raffaella Carrà.

The judges on the show begin with their backs turned to the performer, and turn around only if they like what they hear. As the judges turned to face Sr. Christina, their astonishment was visible at seeing a young nun singing Alicia Keys’ “No One.”

A native of Sicily, Sr. Christina arrived at the show accompanied by four sisters from her community, as well as her parents. The four judges of the popular TV program are the Italian singers Raffaella Carra, J-Ax, Noemi, and Piero Pelu. After her performance, Carra asked Sr. Christina if she is really a nun, and why she chose to compete on the show.

“Yes, I am truly, truly a sister,” she replied.

“I came here because I have a gift and I want to share that gift. I am here to evangelize.”

“If I had found you at Mass I would always be in church,” joked one of the  panel, an Italian rapper known as J-Ax, who then added: “You and me are like the  devil and holy water.” 🙂

They also asked her what the pope would say and she said he encourages sisters to come into the world and spread the word of God and there is no bigger platform than this…

Loved it!!!

Dunno why but my eyes teared up.

PS: It’s gotten almost 2.6m hits already.

Well, went back and watched it again – got the lyrics to Alicia Keys’ “No One” – I can see now – she was deeply emotional because she was singing/praying to Jesus Christ  her love for Him and also praying/chanting for us. I’m not familiar with J-Ax but believe he knew right away (his twitter video explained it – methinks the sign of a great artist) who she was singing to – which is likely why he had tears in his eyes at times. It was a moment of two souls communicating via the Holy Spirit. We’re so far away from our spiritual world on earth that it’s beyond sad. We’ve been trained to think only of this world. Anyway here are the lyrics to the Alicia Keys song…

“No One”

I just want you close; Where you can stay forever; You can be sure

That it will only get better; You and me together; Through the days and nights

I don’t worry ’cause Everything’s going to be alright; People keep talking they can say what they like; But all I know is everything’s going to be alright

No one, no one, no one; Can get in the way of what I’m feeling; No one, no one, no one Can get in the way of what I feel for you, you, you Can get in the way of what I feel for you;
When the rain is pouring down; And my heart is hurting; You will always be around; This I know for certain
You and me together; Through the days and nights; I don’t worry ’cause Everything’s going to be alright; People keep talking they can say what they like;

But all I know is everything’s going to be alright;
No one, no one, no one; Can get in the way of what I’m feeling;

No one, no one, no one; Can get in the way of what I feel for you, you, you Can get in the way of what I feel;
I know some people search the world; To find something like what we have; I know people will try, try to divide, something so real;

So till the end of time I’m telling you there ain’t no one; No one, no one Can get in the way of what I’m feeling;

No one, no one, no one Can get in the way of what I feel for you

.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh [x2]

So when Sr. Christian responded to the question on why she came on the “Voice”  –

she said…

“I have a “gift” and I’m here to give “It” to you.” – “Shouldn’t it be that way”? In context of a spiritual world it makes a lot more sense, right? J-Az got “it” right away! None of the others had a clue no more than myself at the first watch…

Watch it again and see if you agree…
