Missouri nuns top Billboard music chart

(KTVI) – Heavenly music is coming out of a rural, northwest Missouri monastery and it’s making for some unlikely stars – some chart-topping nuns.

The nuns of the Benedictines of Mary are tops in the music industry after being named Billboard’s number one Classical Traditional artist of 2012 and 2013.

The nuns have just released their third album. It includes a capella chants, intricate harmonies and hymns.

The nuns file into their little chapel and sing eight times a day.

Profits help them pay for every day essentials.
