FUSE TV - Famous Singing Nun Reveals Seriously Awesome "Like a Virgin" Cover

No, this isn't an Onion article. A nun has released a cover of Madonna's "Like a Virgin," but let us explain why we chose it as our Song of the Day.

Click play above and meet Cristina Scuccia, aka Sister Cristina, the 26-year-old nun who auditioned for The Voice of Italy earlier this year and won the whole dang thing after the country fell in love with her powerful Bon Jovi and Alicia Keys covers. After winning a record deal with Universal Music, the singer released a cover of "Like a Virgin" as the single to introduce her to the rest of the world.

But this isn't some sexy dance-pop number. Sister Cristina has transformed Madge's classic into a tender ballad adorned with a subtle-yet-empowering tribal beat and hauntingly beautiful harmonies. And just when the song sounds like it's finished, it moves into a grand guitar solo to end the track on a truly epic note.
