You'll never believe what The Singing Nun’s first single is …

We first clapped eyes on Sister Christina during her blind audition on The Voice Italy when she shocked audiences by knocking Alicia Keys’s ‘No-one’ out of the park.

Within hours the video went viral and it currently stands at whopping 62 million views.

You'll never believe what The Singing Nun’s first single is …

The 25-year-old real-life nun went on to win the series and landing a major record deal.

Yesterday her first single was revealed - and it’s a far cry from ‘Climb Every Mountain’.

It’s no other than 'Madonna’s Like A Virgin'.

Sorry what?

Sister Cristina says it was her idea to cover the track but said she did it “without any intention of being provocative or scandalous".

She believes when fans really listen to the lyrics they will “discover a song about love’s ability to renew a person and rescue them from their past”.

We cannot wait to hear Madonna's reaction.
