Cristina Scoccia, an Italian nun who became world famous after winning the Italian version of The Voice, throws her hood over a fence. In other words, she abandons her monastic vows and aspires to a career as an artist.

And because the bread must be placed on the table, I temporarily worked as a waitress. But she hopes to turn her hobby into her profession. This is singing. And she can. She proved it in 2014 when the 25-year-old debutante won The Voice Italia with Alicia Keys’ No One. The jury admired her talent. But also from the courage that she had. The Italian wasn’t wearing a shimmery dress like all of her competitors, but she rocked her custom black dress. After that it grew into a sensation in Italy. She sometimes performed several times a day and landed a contract with Universal Records.

Its success was praised by the Italian Cardinals, but it also received criticism. She especially got into it after she released her first album, which included a cover of Madonna’s song “Like a Virgin.” The Italian Catholic Church called it a “reckless commercial operation”.

This played a role in her decision to retire.

She is certainly not the first nun to make a career in the entertainment industry. The Belgian Jean-Paul-Marie Decker or Soeur Sourire became world famous for her song “Dominique”. She also performs her habit. Then, she was taxed because they demanded a portion of the proceeds from her musical success. Only, she never earned a franc from him. All of its proceeds went to the monastery.

Cristina Scoccia says she is still religious and that she certainly has no regrets about her time at the convent. “I never asked God. Sister Christina is in me. I have had an amazing journey, but it has also been a complicated and difficult one. It has been the best years of my life.”
