WATCH: Sister Cristina’s “Like A Virgin” Video — Nun Won The Voice In Italy!
Sister Cristina, the nun whose incredible performances led to her victory on the Italian version of “The Voice” over the summer, has released an official music video for “Like A Virgin,” the Madonna classic.
“I chose ‘Like a Virgin’ because I wanted it to bear witness to God’s power to move all things!” explained Cristina in a statement. “I see it as GOD’S TOUCH, when he called me to a new life, giving me back the purity and dignity of being his Daughter and being Loved by Him. And that’s the way it will be till the end of time!”
(From what we can recall, that was not Madonna’s primary message with the song upon its original release in 1984.)
The 26-year-old nun told the Italian newspaper Avvenire, “I chose it with no intention to provoke or scandalize. Read the text, without being influenced by previous interpretations, you discover that it is a song about the power of love to renew people, to rescue them from their past.”
Cristina’s version of “Like A Virgin” comes from her self-titled debut album, which includes two original songs and 10 cover tracks, including “Fix You” by Coldplay and the Cyndi Lauper tune “True Colors.” It comes out on November 11.
