In this case, truth is more bizarre than fiction. Four years after Jeanne-Paule Marie Deckers recorded that song, she left the monastery and played under the name Luc Dominique.
Except she enjoyed great commercial failure. Her most notable post-monastery song was "Glory Be to God for the Golden Pill", a musical tribute to birth control pills.
Later, the Belgium government wanted $63,000 from her in back taxes from the profits of her only hit, "Dominique". Unfortunately for her, her agent and the convent received all the money and, being a nun unconcerned with financial matters, she had no receipts to show this.
In 1982, she released a disco version of Dominique, hoping to raise enough money to pay her taxes. That pretty much sealed the end of her singing career.
Beset with financial difficulties, she and Anna Pécher (her companion of 10 years), committed suicide together.
