A heaven-sent contestant on the Italian spin-off of NBC’s The Voice gained global attention after pulling off the ultimate sister act during the season’s blind auditions.

Donning a black robe with a silver cross, Suor Cristina — a 25-year-old nun of the Ursuline Sisters of the Holy Family — stepped onstage and debuted her angelic vocals with her rendition of Alicia Keys‘ 2007 hit, “No One.”

Her animated performance received a standing ovation from the crowd, and it even spun the chairs of all four judges — Raffaella Carra, J-Ax, Piero Pelu, and Noemi — who gave priceless reactions.

Since the video’s YouTube upload on March 19, the viral clip has sparked over 5 million views in three days.

Check out the GIF breakdown of the performance below:
