Singing Nun Cristina Scuccia Stuns Again With Mariah Carey's 'Hero' On 'The Voice Of Italy'

Posted: Updated:

Judges on "The Voice of Italy" got chills when Sister Suor Cristina took the stage again last week to deliver a soulful version of Mariah Carey's "Hero."

The inspirational ballad was a moving choice for underdog Scuccia, who shocked judges with her initial blind audition. The lyrics of "Hero" read in part:

So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

Scuccia followed fellow contestant Benedetta Giovagnini's rendition of Aretha Franklin's "Chain of Fools" in a knockout round that left Giovagnini against the ropes. Watch the full competition here.
