Young Nun Singing on The Voice; Says “God Doesn’t Take Anything Away from Us” [VIDEO]

This cute young nun, Sister Cristina, auditions for the Italian version of The Voice, singing an Alicia Keys song. Of course comes the stupid question (at 5:50), “What does the Vatican have to say about your auditioning for The Voice?” Her perfect response (translated into English):

“[Pope Francis] always says we should go out and evangelize telling people that God doesn’t take anything away from us but will give us more.”

And when Italian rocker judge Piero Pelù suggests she be on his team, here is Sister Cristina screaming (quietly) and throwing devil horns saying, “It would be awesome!”
