Song of the Day: The Singing Nun, “Dominique”

Belgian singer-songwriter Jeanine Deckers, also known as Sister Luc Gabriel, OP, “Soeur Sourire (Sister Smile),” and The Singing Nun, was born on this day in 1932. She left the convent in the 1970’s in a crisis of faith, though remaining a Catholic. “Dominique,” the Belgian-French anthem to St. Dominic, reached #1 on the Hot 100 in 1963.
