Agroup of Michigan-based singing nuns have made it to the top of the Billboard Classical Chart for Christmas.

The Dominican Sisters of Mary love to sing, but their music can now be heard by millions, after their album "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring: Christmas with the Dominican Sisters of Mary" became a smash hit.

They live as a community and enjoy baking and playing football, as well as working on outreach projects in their local area.

For them, the music is a gift to God, as Mother Mary Assumpta Long, the Mother Superior explains.

"We're not doing it for personal glory or for the glory of the community. It's not about us. It's about Him."

They don't tour, and only sing in public on rare, special occasions.
