Tessanne Chin won “The Voice”
Tessanne Chin won “The Voice” and was titled as “The Voice”. During the competition her voice had a soul that no one else on the show had been able to carry. Every Jamaican across the county right now is in pure bliss due to the excitement and happiness we all feel to our souls knowing that Tessanne Chin has won the voice competition. In the beginning of the competition she was told by her coach and one of the judges Adam Levine that she was going to win The Voice. Blake Shelton who is also one of the judges said “I’m not going to tell you it’s yours like Adam; you have to work for it”. What Blake didn’t realize was that obstacles and challenges on a whole was not new to Jamaicans, as a nation we are use to working hard and never take anything for granted.
When Tessanne Chin won “The Voice”, she has proven to the world and herself that she can be more than just a background singer for Jimmy Cliff. She was no longer just the sister- in-law to international reggae star Wayne Marshall or even just the younger sister to international reggae/pop singer Tami Chin. She is Tessanne Chin the winner of season 5 of “The Voice”, a powerful vocalist who won the country over with her mesmerizing vocal talents. She has risen through the ranks and has become the face of hard work for up and coming artist across the world.
Tessanne Chin has proven once again that if you want it bad enough, “keep trying and never give up.” Throughout the competition she sang a large variety of songs ranging from Pink’s song “try” to the soulful icon Whitney Houston’s “I have nothing”. As Tessanne said she was nervous to do a Whitney Houston song because of the personal connection Whitney had with her fans but I strongly believe that all of Whitney’s fans were brought to tears when she sung “I have nothing”. I myself was touched by the very presence of Tessanne Chin on “The Voice”. On the final episode of “The Voice” you could see Tessanne Chin’s mother who flew in all the way from England to see her beautiful songbird sing and her supportive husband who is a part time de-jay for Jamaica’s radio station RJR 94 FM were both overwhelm with joy.
Tessanne Chin has proven once again the Jamaican saying “We likkle but we tallawa” meaning we may be a small country but we have a big voice. Tessanne Chin is a vocal force to be reckoned with and Jamaicans are thankful and proud to say Tessanne Chin has continued to build on Jamaica as a brand (Bran Jamaica) and will continue paving the way for Jamaicans in the music industry.
