Getting to be a habit
What is this rage for singing priests and nuns who go viral? First, you had Irish tenor Father Ray Kelly, who sweetly sang Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" at a wedding where he was officiating - and got 28 million views on YouTube. Now you have Sister Cristina Scuccia, whose great voice, and taste for Cyndi Lauper, Mariah Carey, and Alicia Keys tunes has gotten her on Italy's version of The Voice and garnered 47 million views on YouTube!! The judges better choose her, or there'll be hell to pay . . . .
Paul Simon performed in N.Y.C. Wednesday night at an awards show, his first time out in public since he and wife Edie Brickell were arrested on disorderly conduct charges in New Canaan, Conn.
