To show that singers comes in different size, shapes, colors, genders and even religion.

Music and Singing

Earlier I made some blogs about my two nephews who are singers in their own right. One maybe more well know than the and has a different genre. The other is more upbeat and writes his own songs and better known in Boracay and Europe where he jams. But whatever, I think music is one of the most fascinating talent. I wish I had it but the talent went to my daughter, she can sing and has graduated in Bachelor of Music, major in music education and voice. Oh well at least she has it. I did use to sing in choirs but can never sing in solo.
I also have a niece my older brother's daughter who can also sing very good.
Music can soothe the soul if feeling down or sad just listening to happy lively music can lift the spirit. And can calm us when we listen to meditating music.
But I want to share 2 beautiful singers and made people surprised because one is a nun and the other a priest. Their videos became viral overnight!

The Singing Nun

No this is not the TV series or a movie. I know there are a lot of other Nuns who can sing but this one got the attention of the world and especially Italy because she auditioned for Italy's The Voice. I could not find any English translation or with sub titles. But you can see the song is in English. and she made it to the 2nd round. This just happened so we don't know the results yet. Here is something about her: Taken from YouTube translation:
"Sister Cristina Scuccia 25 years old, is Sicilian but lives in Milan and is an Orsolina nun of the Holy Family. Her childhood dream was to become a singer, in 2008 the Orsolina Sisters organize a music hall in which she finds herself by chance.
A non-believer, and against the Church ... she instead finds Love.
Insecure in life, she is convinced by her Mother Superiors in participating to The Voice of Italy ... this is now her mission!"

So here is her audition:

The Singing Priest

Now this just happened a few days ago. I was so touched by his singing and voice. He was part of The All Priests Show in Dublin, and performed in the States. He loves to sign and trained in singing. He is from Meath, Dublin Ireland and his parish is in Old Castle. Even though the bride and groom is not from his local parish but decided to have their wedding there because it was close to their reception. He told them he might sing a song for them but because they were not from there, they just smiled and said "sure". Boy were they surprised. It was known that he would sing for weddings and his local parishioners knew but when the video was uploaded on YouTube he became famous.
He is also planning on releasing a charity album to coincide with his 25th year since being ordained. He is currently working on a third album, and hoping it will raise money for local charities. The first one was called "Simply Me" and the second "More of Me". There were some suggestions the new one should be called No More of Me!
Just listen and I love it. Wish he could sing in our parish.
