A Brazilian priest who doubles as a pop singer has sold 3.3 million recordings, the KAI news agency reports.

Father Marcelo Rossia 40-year-old priest from Sao Paulo, is outselling the most popular secular performers in Brazil, the magazine Veja reports. His latest CD, entitled "My Blessings," has sold 1.3 million copies. Father Rossi, who also hosts a popular radio program, donates all the receipts from the sales of his music to charity.
