Music without borders: Susheela Raman’s 'Queen Between'

She's the smoky-voiced London-born Tamil diva, mixing a compelling concoction of English song writing and sounds of the Asian subcontinent. Susheela Raman joins us on set to talk about her new album, the aptly named "Queen Between".

Plus: we meet the nun-turned-R&B star. Sister Cristina Scuccia says she's got a gift from God and she hasn't been afraid to share it. The 25-year-old has appeared on popular talent show "The Voice", stunning judges with her angelic singing.

Finally, have you ever wondered what kind of music cavemen listened to? We check out a concert using prehistoric stones, which have been silent for some 8,000 years.
