Demi Lovato covered Hozier's "Take Me to Church" on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge on Wednesday, and the acoustic take on the Irish singer's song is incredibly good.

The "Cool For the Summer" singer is known to have a set of pipes on her, and her strong, haunting vocals are showcased tremendously in this cover, which is full of soul and some very Christina Aguilera-esque vocal gymnastics.

Preach it, girl!

Lovato's facial expressions throughout the over four-minute video are full of as much feeling as her voice, making it clear that she's a true believer in the words of "Take Me to Church."

The 23-year-old former Disney darling told BBC Radio 1 that the first time she heard Hozier's hit single, she was shocked that it was on pop radio.

"It's not your typical pop song. In fact, it doesn't sound like a pop song, but the term 'pop' means 'popular,' so it is a pop song," Lovato explained. "I think I even tweeted, 'Thank god that somebody put this on the radio, because this is incredible music.'"
