Amusingly/somewhat sacrilegiously, Sister Cristina's debut single, released Monday, is a remake of Madonna's controversial smash, "Like a Virgin." Yes, you read that right. Not "Like a Prayer," which would have at least made some sense, but "Like a Virgin."
"I chose it with no intention to provoke or scandalize. Reading 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," she explained. "And this is the way that I wanted to interpret it. For this reason, we have transformed this song from the pop-dance piece which it was, into a romantic ballad, a bit like the ones by Amos Lee. Something more similar to a lay prayer, than to a pop piece."

I've loosely followes sister Cristina since I found her videos that were posted on here actually. I posted because she has a beautiful voice, alot of energy and has alot of faith in her worship and witnessing. She feels her talent is a gift to be given freely to show the gifts God bestows on everyone. I read in an interview since she took a vow of poverty like most nuns, any money she makes for her album sales goes to her convent and their missions. I say its a great way to do things
