Pontiff accepts album gift from Italian singer

The Pope was presented with an album by an Italian singer which he received gracefully.

Pope Francis on Wednesday, December 11 accepted a gift from Italian singer Cristina Scuccia.

The famed Italian singer, Sister Cristina Scuccia, met Pop Francis during his general audience on Wednesday and presented her debut album to the Catholic leader which he gracefully recieved.

Sister Cristina Scuccia who won the Italian version of The Voice in June, was very excited about meeting the Pope and presented with her album which contains the hit ballad-like take on Madonna’s pop classic “Like a Virgin.”

The song has however generated great uproar in the Catholic community for its racy content. In the original version, Madonna sexually sings that someone makes her feel “touched for the very first time.”

Scuccia has however defended herself, saying that she gave the song a religious interpretation in her own version.

“I’m giving it a new interpretation from a faith standpoint. We can all feel incomplete. I felt that when I was touched by God, then I felt loved like I’ve never been loved before,” Scuccia told in an interview.
