After being announced as the winner, she led the TV studio audience in the prayer Our Father. She then broke down in tears, she then said: "My presence here is not up to me, it's thanks to the man upstairs."
A little later, stood next to the mother superior of her Ursuline order, Sister Agatha, she added: "I really didn't expect all this... My aim was to say that I have encountered Jesus. I have a gift and God gave me that gift and I have used it to say that God has taken nothing away from me. The priorities in my life are prayer, getting up early and teaching at my school. I will never give up on my vows and the greatest love of my life for a singing career."
