Jamaican singing sensation Tessanne Chin tops iTunes, in The Voice final


Years of toiling amidst relatively little mainstream recognition and going through the obstacles required to achieve success in her career prepared Tessanne Chin for the biggest performance of her career Monday night, as she stood up the mic to sing Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water on the semi-final of the The Voice.


Once she opened her mouth, she left several of those watching speechless.

“I've never been speechless on the show before,” said her coach, Adam Levine following the performance. “But, I was amazed.”

That performance, undoubtedly her best of the show so far and maybe the best ever on The Voice, helped Tessanne storm into next week’s final Tuesday, with her rendition of Bridge Over Troubled Water topping the overall iTunes chart.

Her teammate, Will Champlin joins her in Monday’s highly-anticipated final, after his rendition of Fun’s Carry On cracked the top 10 on iTunes while Christina Aguilera’s teenage protégé, Jackie Lee peaked at six on the chart and earned the second most votes among the semi-finalists.

The odd ones out were Levine’s other protégé, James Wolpert, who failed to impress with his performance of U2’s With or Without You and Cole Vosbury, who’s performance of Garth Brook’s Shameless was solid, but not solid enough in the eyes of voters. The latter development ended the long reign of his coach, Blake Shelton, who won three consecutive seasons of The Voice, leaving him without any more singers on his team.

Lee’s performance of Sarah McLachlan’s Angel once again gave music lovers a good look of her vocal potential, with a more fluent performance, containing less strains and more of a controlled passion.

But Tessanne’s performance was nothing short of flawless, especially considering that during rehearsals, Levine revealed that Chin had been going through personal problems, though he did not publicize what those problems were. She let the stage be her escape, and delivered an A+ performance under pressure.

She will go into next week’s final as the early favorite to win season five of The Voice and become the first Jamaican act to take home top prize on an American music talent show. It’s safe to say, every Jamaican around the world will be cheering for ‘Tess’ to be the best.
