The Singing Nun, "Dominique"

Can you imagine the simple, sacred song of a guitar playing singing Nun becoming a top hit on U.S. radio stations? Probably could never happen today, but in the 1960's the song "Dominique" became a popular hit in the U.S. and worldwide, with the Belgian Nun even appearing on "The Ed Sullivan Show". The following video is from a movie where Debbie Reynolds played the role of the Nun, Soeur Sourire ("Smiling Sister").

The second video is of the actual Soueur Sourire and her Sisters in 1963.
