“Siervas” or “The Servants,” took the Internet by storm late last year after the band posted a music video to YouTube.
The clip, “Confía en Dios” or “Trust in God,” has been viewed more than 270,000 times. It shows the 12 sisters playing classical and rock instruments, and singing their catchy tune in their religious robes on top of a rooftop helipad.
