The judges asked her if she was really nun, to which she replied, "Yes, I am truly, truly, a sister.

"I came here because I have a gift and I want to share that gift," she said, according to Catholic News Agency. "I want to evangelize."

The incredulous judges asked Scuccia, a native of Sicily, what the Pope would think of her singing, to which she replied, "I am waiting for Pope Francesco to call me on the phone.

'He always says we should go out and evangelize telling God doesn't take anything away from us but will give us more," she said. "I am here for this."
