Go to this web site, and enjoy an old recording of the Ave Maria, by Blessed John Paul II.
Then cue up the Youtube video for your family and/or friends. Don’t let them see the video or hear the introduction. Challenge them to name the performer. Tell them it’s someone famous—a voice they’ve heard—but not someone known as a singer.
