The so-called “Singing Nun” gained worldwide attention for her upbeat performances on the The Voice Italy; Last night, 25-year-old Sister Cristina won it all.

Though Sister Cristina was offered a recording contract with Universal, she plans to return to the convent. “I will go back to my priorities -- prayer, waking up early in the morning, school service. That’s fundamental for me to be able to begin something new later on,” she said.

The Singing Nun first blew the judges away at her audition with her rendition of Alicia Keys’ “No One.” She chose J-Ax to be her mentor throughout the competition; the rapper said that Sister Christina was “one of the most wonderful and wholesome things that has ever happened in my career.”

Christianity Today reports that the Singing Nun was a trained musician before she entered the convent.

“I have a gift to give, and I am giving it to you, what can I do about that? Jesus has called upon me. It wouldn’t be worth much if I kept it for myself,” said Sister Cristina.
