Lady Gaga now shares a record label with a band of soul sisters — a group of Benedictine nuns. Universal Music's Decca Records discovered them at their convent in France as part of a global search for the best singers of Gregorian Chants.

Good morning. I'm Don Gonyea.

Lady Gaga now shares a record label with a band of soul sisters - that is, a group of Benedictine nuns. Universal Music's Decca Records discovered them at their convent in France as part of a global search for the best singers of Gregorian Chants. Unlike Lady Gaga, the nuns probably won't have to worry about paparazzi. They live a life hidden behind closed doors. As for costumes, well, they'll likely stick with something traditional.

It's MORNING EDITION.
