You all remember Sister Cristina, the nun whose rolicking pop covers for The Voice Italy captured the imagination of fans all over the world. Back in June, she won the competition, and now, the good sister has released her first video.
I KID YOU NOT. Sister Cristina’s first single is a cover of Madonna’s “Like a Virgin.” WHAT THEE EFF.
The good sister refrains from rolling around the floor in a skimpy wedding dress, like Madonna did at the MTV Music Awards. She slows it up, sings it like a hymn. In the video, the singer appears to be pouring her heart out to Jesus, amongst the holy relics of Rome. But on the other hand–the song’s protagonist isn’t a virgin in the first place. That’s the point of the song. A transcendent relationship can make a person feel as if they’ve never made love before.
It’s really quite the visual–Cristina in her nun’s habit crooning “Like a Virgin.” One you won’t soon forget. Obviously, the performance is meant to be attention grabbing. Considering the sister was a gimmick from the get go–and really, just an average singer–I hope she truly enjoys her short time in the spotlight, before returning to a life of prayer.
