This is incredible — and they are REALLY talented!
A group of pop-singing nuns who call themselves Siervas (or “The Servants”) will perform in front of Pope Francis on Wednesday, and it’s about time.
Because they are really talented and wholly fun to watch!!
The group, who went viral last year with their music video Conf├â┬¡a en Dios (or Trust In God), is comprised of 12 sisters based in Peru, all playing instruments and singing along in a very by-the-book pop band!
Now the sisters will play in front of the pope in Juarez, Mexico — one of the stops on their Mexican tour that includes four other cities and performances!
Yes, you read that right… a group of nuns is going on a pop music tour! Incredible!
Ch-ch-check out the video for Conf├â┬¡a en Dios (below)!!!
As you might expect, even the nuns are shocked about the opportunity to play for the Vatican leader, with one sister, Cindy, saying:
“I went to the Brazil [in 2013] during the Pope’s trip there and got to see him in the popemobile, but never dreamed I would actually get to play for him. Words cannot begin to express how overwhelmed I am … but our faith speaks volumes. That is what we are hoping to transmit to Pope Francis and to young people around the world.”
Words may not express it, but perhaps music can!
Congrats to these AH-Mazing nuns for the HUGE honor bestowed on them!
Good luck on Wednesday!
