Sister Cristina, the famous "Singing Nun" who won The Voice of Italy, is ready to drop her debut album!
And she's starting with a music video for her first single, covering the most appropriate artist a Roman Catholic nun can - Madonna!

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to hear her very different version of Like A Virgin!
Sister Cristina does SLIGHTLY clean up the lyrics, but for the most part she is singing the same song that got Madge in trouble three decades ago!
How does she reconcile that with her faith? She has a unique take on the classic tune. She said:
"If you read the lyrics without being influenced by what has gone before, you discover that it is a song about the capacity of love to make people new again To release them from their past. And this is how I wanted to interpret it. That's why we've transformed it from the pop-dance track it was into a romantic ballad a bit in the style of Amos Lee."
We love the fresh take!
But sorry, Sister, this song is totally about sex. Maybe it's a translation thing…
You can see what else Sister Cristina sings when her album drops on November 11th!
