Madrid, Oct 21 :
Sister Cristina, the Italian nun who became world famous after winning the first edition of “The Voice” contest in Italy this year, is set to release her debut album, in which she sings Madonna’s classic “Like a Virgin”.
The album, to be released Nov 11, has been produced by Elvezio Fortunato and recorded in several studios in Los Angeles, while the videoclip of her first single, “Like a Virgin”, was premiered Monday on the Vevo musical website.
Cristina Scuccia, 25, said her choice of “Like a Virgin” was intended as “a testimony of god’s capacity to turn all things into something new” and of the call she received for a new life, in remarks published by her recording company.
During her participation in “The Voice”, the Ursuline nun got 100 million visits on YouTube, where she appeared singing themes like Alicia Keys’s “No One”.
